Sweet Tooth Vol. 1: Out of the Deep Woods by Jeff Lemire

Sweet Tooth Vol. 1: Out of the Deep Woods by Jeff Lemire

Genre: Science Fiction, Grapic Novel
Series: #1 in the Sweet Tooth series
Publisher: Vertigo
Publication Date: 2010
Pages: 123
Source: Library

The Book:
This volume 1 is a compilation of issues 1-5 of the comic series.

From the publisher:
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.

My Thoughts:
This was both gritty and charming all at the same time. In a post-apocalyptic North America the young part deer, part human child Gus has an innocence that seems extreme but fits with his isolated upbringing. The big man he meets up with may be good but I'm not completely sure. He does save Gus from bounty hunters but can he be trusted?

The story is interesting and the artwork while a bit rough in places fits the mood and theme of the story.

I'm looking forward to continuing with this series.
