Book Description: An all-new series from Jeff Lemire, the award-winning creator of The Essex County Trilogy and THE NOBODY. Following on the heels of THE NOBODY, his Vertigo graphic novel debut, writer/artist Jeff Lemire pens his first ongoing series, SWEET TOOTH. A cross between Bambi and Cormac McCarthy's The Road, SWEET TOOTH tells the story of Gus, a rare new breed of human-animal hybrid, who was raised in isolation following a pandemic that struck a decade earlier. Now, with the death of his father, he's left to fend for himself ...until he meets a hulking drifter named Jepperd, who promises to help him. Jepperd and Gus set out on a post-apocalyptic journey into the devastated American landscape to find The PreserveA", a refuge for hybrids.
