I will start off by saying that I love Jeff Lemire! I own two copies of Essex County, loved it, I loved the Nobody, and Lost Dogs. Needless to say, his art and story telling is my bag.

Now, for “Sweet Tooth” #3, I am enjoying the art and story, but whenever I get to the end of the issue, I get comic book reader blue balls. Just as I get into his pacing and am ready to finish the entire story line, I am relegated to waiting another month.

So here goes …

Dear “Sweet Tooth”,

I’m tired of this courtship and am not into playing games. It doesn’t mean I am not in love with you. But I can’t stand around and wait for you to finish your story arc month by month.

When you’re done with your arc and come out with a hardcover or even your first trade, I am gonna be there with flowers. In the meantime, I hope that we can remain friends. You’re a special comic book.


Typical Lemire story-telling (Would get 4 or 5 if it was a trade)
Liking color to Lemire’s art
Lemire’s art

Too Short (Not enough meat)
Pacing is bad for issues, but it should be an amazing trade

Story: 3 - Good
Art: 5 - Excellent
