    Comic Book Bin - Zak Edwards Aug 3, 2012

    As the series progresses, it seems Lemires style has become looser and rougher, more likely related to his increased workload than anything else, but the rush works anyways. Besides, the opening dream sequence, where he takes on the coloring duties as well, proves hes not letting Sweet Tooth simply die because he has more lucrative projects on the go. Time and care goes into each issue, and his use of double page spreads and still general experimentation shows Lemire is still using Sweet Tooth as a creative outlet as his other work becomes more editorialized. Sweet Tooth has been a struggle for Lemire at times, but I think its also a wonderful place to watch one of comics most talented people grow into a writer and artist who can bring people to the medium and raise its quality.

    Even though it feels a little rushed, this series is still hitting a lot of solid notes. It's also causing the reader to think and speculate in a way that few comics do. Read Full Review

    Despite my one complaint this is a solid first issue for the concluding story arc. Signs of a great comic are ones that make you think afterwards and anticipate the next issue. Not only this issue but the entire run has accomplished this. One last note if youre reading this Mr. Lemire please spare Bobbys life! Read Full Review
