    This is a really good comic, which considering that it's being penned by Jeff Lemire, shouldn't come as a huge surprise. However, as I say above, this is also a big departure from what he's been doing thus far in Sweet Tooth, and no matter how good the issue is, it's a little distracting to find a story that has almost no relation to what you've been reading for twentyfive issues. I'm excited for what comes next, but I feel like the transition could have been handled a little better. Read Full Review
