SWEET TOOTH--traumatic next issue

In SWEET TOOTH #7 Jeff Lemire delves even further into the former life and love of the hulking bounty hunter Jepperd. And it’s Jeff at his best--chock full of the quiet moments of little dialogue that speaks volumes. And what an eye opening, and may I add, gut wrenching revelation it is.

Here’s a sneak peek.

SWEET TOOTH #3 preview

Hunters, cultists, mutants and shantytown pimps all want a piece of Gus and all that stands between them, is Jepperd. As the little boy with antlers heads out into what's left of the world, he'll find out that no one is quite what they seem. Or are they? Jeff Lemire continues to amaze in SWEET TOOTH issue #3.
