Praise for SWEET TOOTH

“SWEET TOOTH is like Mad Max with antlers. . . . spellbinding and offbeat.” –USA

“Like a Coen brothers road-trip drama, “SWEET TOOTH,” by indie comics fave Jeff Lemire, is a fantastic post-apocolyptic comic.” —AM NEW YORK


“Jeff Lemire’s amazing postapocalyptic comic SWEET TOOTH: bloody and gentle all at once.” –New York Magazine (Approval Matrix Lowbrow/Brilliant)

“Sweet Tooth is a grabber from the get-go . . . Lemire retains his gift for imbuing ordinary moments with a sense of wonder.” –THE ONION/AV CLUB

If you thought you knew Eisner-nominated writer/artist Jeff Lemire’s (The Essex County Trilogy) work, think again. A cross between Bambi and Cormac McCarthy’s The Road, SWEET TOOTH has everything you love about Lemire’s work—the quiet intimate moments, the powerful emotion—mixed with violence, and an edge that is unlike anything you’ve read of his before.

Follow Gus, a rare new breed of human/animal hybrid children, as he sets out with Jepperd, a hulking drifter, on a post-apocalyptic journey into the devastated American landscape to find ‘The Preserve’ a refuge for hybrids.
