Sweet Tooth, vol. 1

Sweet Tooth, vol. 1,  by Jeff Lemire 6.75

I’m not really sure what to think of this one. It’s a good book (story, writing, characters, ..etc), but it seems self-consciously weird to me, as though Lemire didn’t think that the story would hold up or distinguish itself if it were played straight.

Thankfully, it’s not over-the-top; it doesn’t get ka-razzay. However, this post-apocalyptic tale is also unimproved by having select children be born as half-animals and half-human; it’s a superfluous touch.

The idea that they are the only ones unaffected by a world-wide plague that’s killing everyone off is a fine idea, however. But this has been done in a more interesting and realistic way in the ‘Y: The Last Man’ series.

This only feels like an alternate take on the same theme. But weird. And for no real reason to be. indifferent0004 Free Emoticons   Indifferent
