Ever since issue #1 I've wanted to know more about the seemingly heartless killer we know as Jepperd. In the most intense issue of SWEET TOOTH yet, all of Jepperd's secrets are finally revealed as he recalls the most horrendous time of his life and the vicious events that made him the man he is today. Shocking and brutally violent, In Captivity, In Captivity--the second storyline of the series USA TODAY says "is like Mad Max with antlers"- concludes with issue #11 on sale this Thursday.
In addition, we are proud to announce that Jeff Lemire has signed an exclusive contract with DC Comics! So fans rejoice as you enjoy his work not only here at Vertigo, but also in his upcoming ATOM co-feature in ADVENTURE COMICS and the ongoing SUPERBOY series at the DCU.
Here’s what Jeff has to say about it all:
"As a life long DC Comics fan, I am incredibly excited to be a part of both the DCU and of Vertigo moving forward. Sweet Tooth has been a labor of love for me and I couldn't have done it without the amazing support of Karen Berger and everyone at Vertigo. So, the opportunity to not only continue Gus and Jepperd's saga, but also take on the new Superboy monthly and the adventures of Ray Palmer, The Atom is a dream come true for me!
Both the DC and Vertigo line ups at the moment are full of amazing creators and amazing characters and I'm thrilled to have the chance to be a part of that in the years to come!"
