The Book:

From the publisher:
In this new collection featuring issues #12-17, Gus and the other hybrid kids meet a new ally in the militia camp, but will he help them find a way out? And Jepperd begins to assemble an army of his own to take down the militia camp. But can he control the forces he's set in motion? It's the most explosive SWEET TOOTH epic yet!

My Thoughts:
This series just gets more and more fascinating with every issue.

This time it opens with Gus in the Militia camp where his captors and scientists want to find our where he came from. Other human/animal hybrid children were born after the plague that killed much of the worlds population but Gus is too old to have been born after the plague. Is he (and the other hybrid kids) the key to the survival of the human race?

The clues to Gus’s past are generating more questions than answers at this point and the intriguing possibilities have me hooked. There are some seriously whacked out people in the remains of civilization.

Jeppard’s story in the meantime, is getting more answers but they are heartbreaking. He’s an angry man and the things he’s discovering are making him even angrier. At the same time however, he’s determined to help Gus.

Where this series will go next is clear at the end of this volume but the possibilities of what will happen there are wide open. I need to get volume 4 out from the library soon.

3.5 stars Rating 3.5/5
