Sweet Tooth #5

by Jeff Lemire

The first arc of this new series ends pretty much where I expected it to - the Preserve is not that nice a place. While I'm sure none of the readers were surprised by that turn of events, Gus seems to be. Even after his dead father comes back to tell him otherwise, he still believes that Jeppard is a good man, although I think that might yet be proven to be true.

Lemire's oddball series is quite gripping. It's more decompressed than I would like, but he has kept my interest. As always with these types of stories, I would like to know a little more about how the world has ended up this way, but if it takes a while to get there, I don't mind.
