The Sweetness by wife and husband duo Miss Lasko Gross and Kevin Golden follows two badass female intergalactic smugglers of a mysterious controlled substance who cater to the unique tastes of alien drug addicts.
I don't know how many comic shops are carrying Z2 comics The Sweetness #1, but I'm sure it's a number less than 100% and that is a shame. Even those that carry it may have only gotten a few copies so many new readers won't stumble across this hidden gem. Trust me, ask your local shop to place a reorder for this book if they don't have a copy available. Give it a try. Or bypass your shop if they don't have it and grab a digital copy, those are never sold out and there is no comic shop owner's lack of ordering standing in between you and your comic reading. This is the best new series I've read in months. The Sweetness is on my pull list and I look forward to the remainder of the series, beyond that I now have two new creators to keep an eye out for.

This is an odd case, because I kind of feel let down twice, but I still like what I got. I may not understand why things start one way and just completely jump ship, but the bulk of the story is interesting enough, the characters are easy to like or hate, and the world around everything sounds cool as heck. Not a bad start, once you get over the awesome false-start. I hope issue 2 features more of that, though. Read Full Review
