“"Like a Coen brothers road-trip drama, SWEET TOOTH...is a fantastic post-apocalyptic comic." --AM NEW YORK "SWEET TOOTH is a grabber from the get-go...Lemire retains his gift for imbuing ordinary moments with a sense of wonder." --THE ONION "Jeff Lemire's SWEET TOOTH is as heartbreakingly elegant as it is wholly original. One of the best comics I've ever read."--Damon Lindelof, co-creator and executive producer of "Lost" I would crawl over broken glass to read this."--Jason Aaron (SCALPED)”
