“Writer and artist Jeff Lemire has created the new ‘must read’ book with SWEET TOOTH.” – GEOFF JOHNS

“Spellbinding and offbeat… emotionally charged.” – USA TODAY

“A grabber from the get-go…” – THE ONION

The first five issues of Jeff Lemire’s acclaimed new series introduce Gus, a rare new breed of human/animal hybrid who was raised in isolation following a 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.

  1. Slow burn, but once we get to issue #3….then it’s gold.

  2. I thought this was out already?


  3. @AmirCat – Only if you’re from the future. 😉

  4. @Amircat: are you from the future? if so, do i never learn to love agian?

  5. Yes, never.

    Am really looking forward to this, have been trade-waiting for what has seemed like forever.  Essex County was incredible.

  6. My shop had it a week or 2 ago. 

  7. way to own CGPO

    @AmirCat: will someone die in Daytripper?

  8. @Urthona: Same here, my LCS didn’t get many issues of this so I stop at issue #2 and was trade waiting.  I was happy to get issue one because I got Lemire to sign in and send a sketch with the promotion he did for Sweet Tooth’s release.

  9. @CGPO – Yes … yes, I am. Cookie Monster will be president in 2024. His running mate will be a chocolate peanutbutter cookie. 

    @Edward – You’ll meet a girl who is into comic books and get married. Then you’ll findout that she is a huge Jeph Loeb fan and even hooked up with him at Melbourne comic-con, they have a bastard child. You stay with her cause she is pretty and has a kick ass body. 

  10. Nice!

  11. hahahaha

  12. This WAS great.  Lemire’s artwork is simple, yet incredibly evocative, I don’t know how he does it.  The book was more violent than I thought it would be, but it was really well done.  Use of plaid was particularly nice, and reminded me of Essex County.

    It’s not that hard to guess what the next arc will be, but I can’t wait to read it (or perhaps I can, because I’ll be trade waiting).

    Congratulations Edward, happy rutting!
