Review: Sweet Tooth, Vol. 1 by Jeff Lemire

A decade ago the Affliction raged like a forest fire, killing billions, and the only children born since are a new breed of humun/ animal hybrid. Gus is one of these endangered children, a boy with a sweet soul, a sweeter tooth—and the features of a deer.

But kids like Gus have a price on their heads. When vicious hunters descend on his isolated forest home, a mysterious and violent man called Jepperd rescues Gus.

I liked Jepperd when he showed up, he kind of reminded me of Mike Ehrmantraut from Breaking Bad.

They’re both pretty badass in their own ways.

But back to this story, Jepperd continues to protect Gus from the bad guys, but can Gus fully trust him?

I really thought he could, but then Jepperd stopped talking to Gus towards the end of their journey. And I just knew something bad was going to happen.

Overall, it was a pretty interesting volume—and I’m still rooting for Jepperd to come back! Maybe in volume 2?

Also, that feeling of accomplishment when the title finally makes sense:
