Sweet Tooth #3

by Jeff Lemire

Sweet Tooth is easily the most non-Vertigo book that Vertigo is publishing right now. And I think that's its strength. Lemire is taking his time setting up the story here, as Gus and Jeppard continue to travel to the Preserve, stopping to recover from the events of last issue. Gus finds an abandoned house with food (which seems a little unlikely at this point), and later the pair walk through a town which still has at least one inhabitant.

I like the way Lemire is keeping Jeppard and his motives shrouded in mystery. It's hard to tell what the man is up to, and that is what is giving me the impetus to keep reading.

In all, an excellent comic.
