Not going to give anything away. Just know that this is a much more exciting chapter. Gus and Jeppard display an uncanny relatability, yet obscurity that only Lemiere seems capable of orchestrating. Give attention back to Sweet Tooth. It's only getting better.
I thought this third volume was a lot of back tracking from Jeff Lemire in terms of the story. The whole point of the first two books is basically undone in this third book and, besides learning a few new things about Gus, thought that it was more of the same from the first two volumes. The sort of desperate survivors fighting amongst themselves kind of stuff, plus Jepperd has a real sucker punch of a revelation at the end that I thought was very clumsily put in by Lemire and felt kind of cheap.
The artwork is great as always and lends itself well to the truly horrifying images in the book.
Overall though I felt this was a pretty weak book that sets up the story for the next one but, looking back at the story so far, it felt a bit anti-climactic. If you're following the series then this is a book you'll have to read but is by far the weakest of the three so far. Still, hopefully it'll pick up in the next volume.
I started reading the first one and couldn't put them down. So sad there are only 6 books. I would love to see more but felt like it gave me enough to feel closure and satisfied.
