    Matt Kindt's stint on this arc has been perfectly suited to the nature of this narrative, resulting in a painted look that feels right at home within this series but offers a fundamental stylistic difference at the same time. Kindt's harsh strokes and oftentimes abstract approach to backgrounds and characters underline the primitive environment that these characters have found themselves in and, more importantly, their primal instinct to survive and protect. Sweet Tooth #28 is more about raw emotion and instinct than anything else, and Kindt's approach to his art " from his linework to the colors " reflects that every bit. Read Full Review

    Jumping on point?: No way. They don't get much more inaccessible than this one: final issue in a story arc within a larger story that has been going on for 28 issues. And with a guest creator to boot. It's a good issue, but NOT a jumping on point. Maybe come back next issue or start from the beginning. Read Full Review
