    If you haven't guessed by now, I'm pretty taken with this series. It's something I look forward to every month, and that doesn't seem likely to change. The first trade is out next week, and if I know Vertigo very well it'll be $10. That's well worth it for good comics. Read Full Review

    Whether it was Gus’ creepy dreams or Jepperd’s pathetic desire to die, this issue packed an emotional wallop that kept me riveted from the first page to the last. If Sweet Tooth has any major fault, it’s the fact that up to now, the story has been fairly by-the-numbers. This issue felt as though many of the threads that author Jeff Lemire has left dangling were finally being woven into something larger and the bombshell that he dropped on the last page left me drooling over the prospect of next month’s issue.

    IGN - Andy Bentley Apr 7, 2010

    Sweet Tooth asks a lot of tough questions about the nature of life and the role humans have played on this planet. These themes have been raised before in countless films, but only in a Vertigo comic could Lemire present the more fantastical elements (like a boy with antlers) and make them believable. The human animal hybrids make us question our superiority as a race and our definition of intelligent life. Lemire's creation is a challenging series that pushes the medium forward. Read Full Review
