Following on the heels of THE NOBODY, his Vertigo graphic novel debut, writer/artist Jeff Lemire pens his very first ongoing series SWEET TOOTH. A cross between Bambi and Cormac McCarthy's The Road, SWEET TOOTH tells the story of Gus, a rare new breed of human/animal hybrid children, has been raised in isolation following an inexplicable pandemic that struck a decade earlier. Now, with the death of his father he's left to fend for himself . . . until he meets a hulking drifter named Jepperd who promises to help him. Jepperd and Gus set out on a post-apocalyptic journey into the devastated American landscape to find 'The Preserve' a refuge for hybrids. This unique and haunting new series is written and illustrated by Eisner-nominated creator Lemire (The Essex County Trilogy) and colored by fellow Eisner nominee Jose Villarubia.

In a post-apocalyptic world, after some kind of mysterious "accident" seven years ago, everyone has become infected...
I liked it. Don't looooooooove it... So it's a 3 stars in my modest opinion. Maybe because I read and ADORED [b:Saga, Volume 1|15704307|Saga, Volume 1|Brian K.

Lemire Lemire Lemire. No se como le hace justo, le preguntaba a Mel, que como es posible que alguien escriba cosas tan tristes y llenas de ese sentimiento que es una mezcla entre melancolía, soledad y añoranza. No se pinche Lemire te mete en la historia demasiado rápido. Eso me gusta, de repente est...
