SWEET TOOTH






















I read Jeff Lemire's Sweet Tooth Vol.1 recently and really enjoyed it. A bleak, dark story with a foreboding sense of doom? I'm all over it. Jeff said something very kind about me on Twitter the other day, so I thought i'd return the favour by drawing Gus, ie. Sweet Tooth.

That's a gorgeous image of Gus!

Sweet Tooth is a brilliant series. Wait till you read volume 2, it just gets better!

Not familiar with the character, but like the piece a lot, great conveyance of his emotional state.
Also makes me think of christmas...

Spooky.I came across my copy of Sweet Tooth issue one a day or so ago when I was cleaning out my room,so I sat down and read it.Then I started rereading the Essex County books.Now this.
GET OUT OF MY HEAD,JEFF LEMIRE!

Great drawing though,Dec.The face and the body language sum up the character perfectly.Have ye ever thought of doing your own book and submitting it to Top Shelf or D+Q or one of those lads?
