    This is the climax. It is the beginning of the end. Sweet Tooth #40 is the final issue, and Sweet Tooth #39 is everything it needed it to be, should be, and could be. Read Full Review

    We've still got one issue to go " which Lemire promises will be far happier than this one " but issue #39 holds so much emotional resonance that you'll be hard pressed to continue reading the rest of your comics from this week without your mind wandering back to Sweet Tooth. Read Full Review

    Even if the ending is a little expected, it is stillverywell done. Lemire is able to provoke stronger emotions with his work than most creators. Read Full Review

    It's visceral (that leg breaking is making me shuffle uncomfortably as I write this), and still moving. Lemire's strength has never been in great action sequences, his art is too wooden in a way, so his focus continues to be on his ability to freeze moments. The action sequences don't have flair, nor should they, because we are dealing with the most blatant mortality here. Here, movements have weight, consequences, and implications, they cannot simply hover or move without impact. Read Full Review

    Sweet Tooth has been excellent from the start. The ending in issue 39 is setting up what will sure to be a sad and devastating conclusion to this stunning series. Jeff Lemire is a genius. What else can I say? Read Full Review
