I still don’t know how writer Jeff Lemire does it. It feels like the dude is parallelly writing 10 different series with 5 different publishers at the same time. While his stories aren’t always mind-boggling, they do sometimes turn out to be quite fantastic.
One of his most-beloved series is the six-volume (40-issues long) limited series published by Vertigo from September 2009 to January 2013 called Sweet Tooth. I first mentioned having started this series back in August 2020 and finally got around to finishing it up this year.
What is it about? The story introduces readers to Gus, a child of a rare breed that crosses human and animal genes. Growing up isolated from the world, a world that has known an unknown pandemic for the last decade, his father one day dies and leaves him to fend for himself until a strange drifter by the name of Jepperd promises him to help him out, opening the gate for him to the outside world for the first time in his life.
