jeff lemire -sweet tooth

Late to the party on Jeff Lemire who has a body of interesting work already. His latest is Sweet Tooth (Deer/boy Gus leaves his forest sanctuary for a destroyed world of men, led by a stone cold killer [yes slightly Marv character, well see how it goes] who promises escape to "the preserve".) Lemire is from Canada and with his rural background (really want to get the Essex County books) manages to bring a fresh approach to this McCarthy/Road-ish post-apocolyptic tale. Lemire does double duty here as writer and artist, good stuff. Parts 1, 2, and 3 are out so you can enjoy a full read (too slow for me reading 1 issue a month anyway...)
