HASH(0x9b910b88) out of 5 stars One of Vertigo's Current Best Jan. 8 2012
By Tyler S. - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Favorite volume of the series, and nearly my favorite within the publisher. Only Fables exceeds above this title in the Vertigo line, for me. This installment is so damn exciting, that i neglected to pace myself entirely. I ate it up and I want more, Jeff. I dont understand why this series has dropped in readers, it's brilliant.

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.

HASH(0x9b910dd4) out of 5 stars Sweet Tooth book 3 July 26 2011
By Just Tim - Published on

This series had my attention from the moment I first read the description. With only 3 collections so far it is clearly building momentum. Animal Armies is the best so far, full of smart, meaningful dialogue and the artwork is able to capture a surprising amount of tenderness and terror. I love this series. For this price I think everyone should give it a chance.

HASH(0x9b910d98) out of 5 stars Not so sweet Aug. 19 2011
By Sam Quixote - Published on
Format: Paperback
Gus aka Sweet Tooth is at the behest of evil scientists and Jepperd is rallying some questionable allies to free him - but will he be too late?

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.

HASH(0x9afc02ac) out of 5 stars Read it. Then read it again. June 17 2015
By Kindle Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Absolutely loved it. Definitely has that kind of dark post-apocalyptic feel that's sort of being run into the ground these days but somehow feels different. The mythic characters and backstory definitely give it something new and interesting.
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.

We open to Jepperd teaming up with the Militia to rescue Gus from The Preserve. Jepperd fights for Gus and The Preserve crumbles. During the battle, we see Gus start to stand up for himself and it's so great to see him grow up and take responsibility. We're also starting to get answers as to why the plague happened and where the hybrids came from. Things started getting REAL!!

Lemire did a great job juggling both Gus and Jepperd’s two stories simultaneously and then converged them seamlessly. There was so much truth to Jepperd’s reflections on his wife and the details that we're keeping her alive in his mind. And the biggest shock of all came when he got confirmation that his son didn't actually die and he's very much alive.

A nice reference to the first volume appeared as we find out that Gus’ “father” wasn’t just rambling prophecies, there were actually directions to help understand what was happening. The story now takes us up North and we’re left with a lot of questions…

I really enjoyed how action packed this one was and that it answered more of the questions that are eating at me. I related to the characters so much more with provoking things in real life to what was happening (like Louise). Each volume has gotten better and better! Volume 4-6 arrive any day now and I can’t wait to round out this series. It’s amazing!!
