I picked up an issue of Sweet Tooth because I liked the cover artwork. Started reading it, bought it, and just had to get the story from the begining. the story line is sci fi, (hmmm...), and the characters are written well,you want to know how their lives unravel. the mystery surrounding the origin of the main character is a good part of the story for me. not all comics are of the lives and battles of superhero's. If you want scifi, suspense, mystery, like the good vs evil story line and appreaciate art, this is a really good series. some of the main characters are children and there are violent people in the story doing violent things, so I dont think i would have let my young son read this.
