The first five issues of Jeff Lemire‘s acclaimed new series Sweet Tooth have been collected in a 128 page graphic novel ($9.99) due on May 12, 2010. In the compilation we are introduced to Gus, a rare new breed of human/animal hybrid who was raised in isolation following a pandemic that struck a decade earlier. Now, with the death of his father, he’s left to fend for himself . . . until he meets a hulking drifter named Jepperd, who promises to help him. Jepperd and Gus set out on a post-apocalyptic journey into the devastated American landscape to find ‘The Preserve,’ a refuge for hybrids.
