“Sweet Tooth” is a fun, light graphic novel series from Vertigo Comics. A virus has swept across the world, wiping out almost all of humanity. Only a few human survivors remain, but it is only a matter of time until they also catch the virus and pass. The real survivors are a new race of half human/half animal beings. Gus, the main protagonist of the story, is a boy with antlers who finds out that he might be the key to finding out the cause of the virus. The premise may sound similar to “Station Eleven” but it plays out quite differently. There are far more elements of sci-fi and fantasy, and a large amount of heart, for how desolate the setting is. A good introduction to a non-super hero comic series.
Two words that describe this book: Post-apocalyptic, artistic, light
You might want to pick this book up if: You wanted “Station Eleven” to be a little more “out there.” You also might want to pick it up if you want to get into a comic series that is fairly short, light, enjoyable and not your typical “Spider-Man”.
