On November 3, acclaimed international bestseller Jeff Lemire and colorist José Villarubia reunite for a new six-issue post-apocalyptic fantasy miniseries featuring the bizarre, haunting, Sweet Tooth. Acclaimed writer/artist Jeff Lemire returns with colorist José Villarubia to bring you the next chapter in the saga of DC’s acclaimed series Sweet Tooth. On the heels of the Netflix adaptation announcement, it’s time to jump back into the series.
According to DC Comics, Sweet Tooth: The Return is no re-hash of the original series, but rather a bold re-imagining of the Sweet Tooth mythology. It will take elements of the original series and remixing them into something familiar, but totally new. A divided world. A planet long ago past the point of devastation. And at the center of it all, a child who didn’t ask to be born into any of this, but who has no choice but to try and forge some life for himself. His visions and dreams may not be real at all…they may just be fiction. But they are hope. And sometimes hope is enough.
Sweet Tooth: The Return Synopsis:
Once upon a time there was a little boy named Gus. He had antlers and lived with his father in a little cabin in the woods. Then his father died, and the big man with cold eyes took Gus away. Gus went on many great adventures, found friends, love, happiness, family, and acceptance. Now, years later…it begins again. A young boy with antlers and deer-like feature wakes in a bizarre and completely foreign world where the last humans struggle to survive. They tell the boy he is special, he is chosen, and that he alone can lead them back to a world dominated by the oppressive Hybrids.
