Sweet Tooth, Book 1 by Jeff Lemire

Sometimes, it can be hard to pull in a reader when the premise is somewhat unusual given that the main character is half-deer. However, Gus and the other hybrids are immensely humanized through character development in many ways. There is indeed turmoil that takes place throughout the journey of Gus and Jepperd, and this is most definitely a dark story. I also really enjoyed the style of artwork in the series. There is also a TV adaptation on Netflix; the first season is out now!

Sweet Tooth is a mystical tale of love, loss, and friendship. If you like fantasy and/or have enjoyed other post-apocalyptic comic series like The Walking Dead, then you’re sure to love it.
