Users who pulled this comic:


  1. I love this $1 first issue approach.  I am prepared to be unsettled by this issue.

  2. Aw, this one’s normal sized… oh well.  This $1 first issue deal is perfect.  As bad as Greek Street was, I don’t care, because it was only a dollar.


  4. If my LCS (which is in Toronto, where Lemire lives) fails to pull this for me and sells out before I get there on Wednesday, I will be moving my pull list to a new LCS.  Mark my words.

  5. Sweetness!!  I can’t wait to read this.  Hope it’s good stuff

  6. greek street is not bad!

  7. This sounds like a much better comic then Greek Street or Unwritten.

    I’d buy that for a dollar!

  8. so does greekst work for Dc or something?

     i’m very excited for this comic. come on, Jeff!

  9. Love Unwritten, Greek Street wasn’t for me. I love The Nobody and the little bit of Essex County I’ve read. Jeff Lemire is a name to remember. I think this title will reinforce his strengths, star, backwoods, and beautiful.

  10. Stark, that is.

  11. I’ve heard so much good stuff about the Essex County books, there’s no way I’m not picking this book up. Especially for $1!  

  12. This is going to be a gem. Anyone who has read any of Lemire’s earlier work knows that.

  13. I think that Fallout Boy video has ruined this for me :D, but at 1 dollar I’ll surely give it a shot.

  14. I picked up the Essex County collected edition last week.  It is a collection to treasure.  Just be prepared to weep openly at it’s aching sadness.

  15. Just read The Nobody.  Can’t wait to get more of Jeff’s work, especially monthly

  16. Oh man. This anthropomorphic stuff gives me the willies. This will be a Furries delight. I’ll pass.

  17. I think this could be the next great vertigo epic.

  18. Going to be so strange to see Lemire’s stuff in full colour, but can’t wait.  I hope this finds an audience and has a decent run.

    On a side note, I love the Constantine and Dr. Strange sketches that Lemire did for me.  Great guy.

  19. Can’t wait for this, I’ve been looking forward to it for a while.

  20. I’ll check this out for a dollar (well, 2 here :P), but I can’t see this as being something I’ll be way into. Happy to be proven wrong, though!


  21. I just read essex county and the nobody this week and they were incredible. I’m interested to see how his use of space and pacing will translate to an ongoing series but I’m definitely on board.

  22. Is this an ongoing or a mini? Or one of those Vertifo 60-issue runs?

  23. I’m going into this almost completely blind.  I’ve heard lots of buzz but since it didn’t catch my attention at first I didn’t really pay any attention.  I’m looking forward to reading this now and for $1 its worth a look.

  24. @Zeppo: I am assuming it’s going to be the standard Vertigo ongoing.  5-6 year run barring cancellation.

  25. @edward I think it’s Peter Milligan.

  26. The preview saw didn’t impress me much in the art department.  I’m down for anything that is only a dollar though, even Barney! LOL, Barney…

    If I like it, I’ll check out Essex County.  After all, I do live in NJ.

  27. Can’t wait to check this out.  Any comic is worth $1!

  28. CANNOT WAIT 4 FOR THIS BOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  29. since its only a buck i’ll pick it up but unless it absolutely wow’s me i cant say I’ll keep getting it.

  30. Hard to resist the $1 price point, but I can already tell this is something I’d enjoy more in a solid chunk of trade. Dammit, they hooked me tho

  31. My shop didn’t order any copies.  Guess I’ll be waiting ’til next week.

  32. For those of you who don’t follow Jeff Lemire’s blog/twitter, Jeff is offering to sign every issue of Sweet Tooth #1 and also draw a free sketch for each copy you mail him. If you send him 100 books, he’ll sign all of them and ship them back with 100 sketches. Info is on his blog. At a dollar a pop, I might buy more than one.

  33. I already have a Dr. Strange and Constantine sketch, but I would love to get something else from him.  This may be difficult to decide.  I think he probably works best when the people are somewhat normal looking.

  34. Great first issue.

    Introduces me to the style of Lemire and I loved every page of this. This is the first $1 Vertigo comic I can say I want to follow. Can’t wait to see where this series is going to take us.

  35. I am impressed that TNC liked this.  A good sign 😉

  36. Vertigo fucked up with the preview.

  37. yeah I read the preview then read the issue and I had expected more

  38. I went in to the blind and thought it hit it out of the ballpark.  Great set up.  This story has so much potential that I have no idea where it is headed towards. 

  39. Very impressive.  Not my pick, but enjoyed the hell out of it.  Hooked me enough to want to pick it up in singles (the only Vertigo book I’m doing that with at the moment) 

  40. I enjoyed reading this comic.  I can’t wait to see what happens!!

  41. I liked The Nobody and really liked this. I hope it catches on and becomes a big thing because it seems like it deserves it. The stuff poor Gus has gone through already is quite sad and I’m already rooting for him. I definitely need to go back and read Essex County now.

  42. I completely agree. The way Lemire draws poor Gus, makes u immediately feel sorry for him. There is also i very innocent nature about him. Can’t wait to see the dynamic between Gus & Jeppard. Awesome 1st issue. Lemire can do no wrong.

    POTW……BY A MILE!!!!!!!!!!!

  43. Excellent first issue.  Sets up everything, but still had time for Lemire’s characteristic quiet moments.  His art looks great coloured too!

  44. SOB. TNC likes this? I may as well just take it back.

  45. What a great issue. Definitely a front-runner for POW, though I haven’t finished all of my books yet. The art is gorgeous and Jeff Lemire is definitely a master of creating a feeling and an aura throughout his books. Can’t wait to see where we go from here. 5/5.

  46. Isolation, alienation, subjugation! MAYHEM!!! Saw the IF interview with the creator and thought "meh." But I saw how many pulls it had and then saw it was only $1. I am sooo glad I picked it up. Bizarre and unique. A great setup. Consider me on board.

  47. Enjoyable, if not a little light on content.

    Can’t wait for some more.

  48. This was excellent, as expected. I am never reading a preview ever again.

  49. Should have gotten on board with this sooner. Excellent read. 5/5 for me. 

  50. It was good enough for me to check out the next issue but I’m not as gaga for it as others seem to be.  Reminds me of ‘The Village’ movie from M. Night Shyamalan.

  51. Another Horror Comic Book Genre awesome can’t wait to buy it.

  52. It was alright.

  53. what the flip?

  54. Holy shit #2 on iFanboy!

  55. Go for number one! Numbah one!

  56. This was a extremely thin 1st issue even for $1.  There is more information in the solicit then in the issue.  I can’t even say whether I dislike it because I still have no idea what is going on (and not in a good way).

  57. This is potentially my new favourite comic.

  58. There need to be more artists like this. I want to see an ongoing Batman series done by Jeff Lemire.
