Graphic Novel Review: Sweet Tooth Vol. 2: In Captivity

10 February 2011 11:50 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Issues #1-5 of Sweet Tooth introduced us to an innocent young boy with antlers, who was thrust into a world he didn’t know to face a fate he didn’t ask for. It’s an Ugly Duckling story set in a world mixed between Children of Men and The Walking Dead. However, this story is anything but cliché post-apocalyptic tale. Jeff Lemire created something bold and unique when he mixed his expressively grizzled artwork with a suspenseful, page-turning story. Oh, and the dialogue is outstanding too.

Sweet Tooth Vol. 2: In Captivity collects issues #6-11 of the Vertigo comic series. In Vol. 1, we were introduced to Gus, the boy with antlers who lost his loving father –the only person he ever knew. Shortly after breaking into the wild, he is discovered and rescued by a hardened man named Jepperd. He had a rifle and a fighter’s spirit. Gus »
