Sweet Tooth #7

by Jeff Lemire

I love what Lemire has been doing with this comic. While the book is mostly about Gus, the deer/human hybrid child who has fallen into the hands of Dr. Singh, who has all the makings of the next Dr. Mengele, it is really Jeppard's story that is grabbing my interest over the last two issues.

I've always had a weak-spot for post-apocalyptic stories, and the types of people that are able to live through them. Jeppard is clearly a survivor - 'like a goddamn cockroach' as he puts it in this issue - but it is increasingly clear that survival might not be the preferable state of existence.

I hope people are checking this book out, as it is very, very good.
