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.
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!!
