Comic Review: Sweet Tooth #10

Sweet Tooth #10
Written and Drawn by: Jeff Lemire
Colors by: Jose Villarubia
Letters by: Pat Brosseau
Vertigo Comics
Price: $2.99
Release Date: June 2, 2010

I am continually drawn into Jeff Lemire‘s genius mysteries for tons of reasons. One of those reasons is compelling characters as seen in previous issues of Sweet Tooth with Jeopard and also his series Essex County. Another big reason is the aforementioned mystery best seen in this issue, Sweet Tooth #10, and also his series The Nobody that gives me something rarely attempted in comics, a serious science fiction story.

I have become captivated with all aspects of the story especially the mystery of Gus and this “infection.” How can you not feel for Jeopard and Gus at this point as well? I am rooting for both characters as well as hating these scientists for their cruelty. The problem with hating them though is not knowing how they got to where they are now, especially if they have to continuously watch people die and all they really want, from what we can see, is to cure this infection.

Read Now: ‘Sweet Tooth #1’

One of my favorite new books of last year was Sweet Tooth. Eisner-nominated writer/artist Jeff Lemire has a very unique style and vision and I think he’s a person you should be aware of.

I have been in love with the series since the beginning and now you can sample the first issue courtesy of DC/Vertigo.

DC has Issue #1 available right now and I highly encourage you to give it a try and then when you’re hooked like me, you can pick up Sweet Tooth Vol. 1: Out of the Woods this May.

The story follows 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.
