Random House, Inc.
Following on the heels of THE NOBODY, his Vertigo graphic novel debut, writer/artist Jeff Lemire pens his very first ongoing series SWEET TOOTH. A cross between Bambi and Cormac McCarthy's The Road, SWEET TOOTH tells the story of Gus, a rare new breed of human/animal hybrid children, has been raised in isolation following an inexplicable pandemic that struck a decade earlier. Now, with the death of his father he's left to fend for himself . . . until he meets a hulking drifter named Jepperd who promises to help him. Jepperd and Gus set out on a post-apocalyptic journey into the devastated American landscape to find 'The Preserve' a refuge for hybrids.

This unique and haunting new series is written and illustrated by Eisner-nominated creator Lemire (The Essex County Trilogy) and colored by fellow Eisner nominee Jose Villarubia.

Good graphic novel series.

The main character Gus is so impossibly naive next to Jepperd, the Clint Eastwood bad ass stand in that a nice chemistry occurs. The drawings aren't always the best, but that actually adds a nice sense of personalty to it.

Post apocalyptic graphic novel. Reminds me of Y The Last Man. Both have main characters who are naive and innocent but may be the key to figuring out what happened.
