    And as with all great fiction, and particularly great genre fiction, it's tough to hone in on why Sweeth Tooth works as much as it does. Lemire's stylistic art, and the marriage of his strange visuals with his strange ideas, is surely a large part of why the series works more than other formulaic post-apocalyptic stories. But there's more to it than that. It's the entirety of Lemire's nightmarish vision that really makes this title sing. The best testament I can give to the book is that I knew Jeppard would eventually head back to save Gus in this story arc, but still didn't find it any less rewarding and powerful when he started in that direction.

    A strong issue, but not the guaranteed pick of the week that Sweet Tooth usually is. Read Full Review

    Based on story alone, this is one of my favorite current Vertigo books, #2 if not #1; however, the art is really not doing it for me at all, and it's hard to get past that when I'm reading the book. With a story that good, complex, and intriguing, I would hope that the art has that same effect on me.As I stated above, if in fact, as the world of Sweet Tooth is revealed to the reader, the artwork starts breaking down, then that is genius, and forget everything negative I said about this book, but I just don't think that's the case. If you're reading this book, continue on. Lots of people have been dropping this book, and I'm not sure why. It's solid. If you have never heard of this book, check out the first three issues and see if it's something you can get into. Read Full Review
