Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The first half of this collection detours from the main story line, in which a scraggly group of survivalists and human-animal hybrids plod toward Alaska, to an episode in the early twentieth century, drawn by guest artist Kindt, that begins to explain the origin of the devastating plague that would ruin humanity’s future. The series is rapidly approaching its end point with only eight issues left after the ones collected here. As always, the deer-boy Sweet Tooth steals hearts and hulking Jeppard steals the show. Over the final half of the book, Lemire’s quavery artwork is as unsettling, distinct, and fantastic as ever. --Ian Chipman

Review

"Like a Coen brothers road-trip drama, SWEET TOOTH...is a fantastic post-apocalyptic comic."—AM NEW YORK

Started reading it, bought it, and just had to get the story from the begining.

The Sweet Tooth series is full of all kinds of surprising twists and turns that make them a compelling read that's hard to put down.

While not my favorite volume, Sweet Tooth vol 5 is awesome and I can't wait to see how Lemire wraps up Sweet Tooth in vol. 6!

Format: Paperback
The first half of the book takes the story back to 1911 where a wealthy young Englishman goes in search of his brother-in-law who has disappeared after going to Alaska to spread the word of god to the native Eskimos. But what he finds in the snowy wasteland is the beginning of the end for humanity... Meanwhile back in the main storyline, Gus and Jepperd find out the real story behind the Evergreen Project.

The biggest problem I had with the book is in the first half of the book where it's revealed how the plague that wiped out most of humanity started and where it came from. I won't tell you what it turns out to be but it's really disappointing. I read it and thought - that's it? I was expecting something a bit more complex, a bit more innovative maybe, but not what it turns out to be. It was so disappointing it diminishes the entire series for me. Whereas once I was excited about the storyline and what Jeff Lemire might do with it, now I've seen more of the whole picture, I'm far less excited.

As for the rest of the storyline, it feels strangely gridlocked. For those who read Book 4, the focus remains in the dam. The one character in the book who tries moving the main plot forward gets pushed out of the story and instead the book focuses on all the secondary characters you don't care about who are now inexplicably dictating the series' direction.

Lemire announced earlier this year that the series ends on issue #40 which, as I write in November 2012, is the next issue to be published, so there's going to be a Book 6 and that's it. Reading Book 5, it feels like Lemire has totally run out of ideas. Both storylines in this book are badly written, poorly characterised, and plotted in a slapdash way.

This is another great addition to the Sweet Tooth series. The story continues upon where the last book left off but a large portion of the book is a flashback in time to fill in a little of the back story about the mysterious illness and the hybrid children which are the subject of the earlier books. The flashback starts to answer some of the question that the author, Lemire, has to start answering to keep the attention of readers as the main story has begun to repeat somewhat. The end is in sight with this series and it will be fun to watch it unfold. If you liked the prior Sweet Tooth books then you will like this one as it continues to do what the other books did so well and the art style is still consistently beautiful but haunting.

I picked up an issue of Sweet Tooth because I liked the cover artwork. Started reading it, bought it, and just had to get the story from the begining. the story line is sci fi, (hmmm...), and the characters are written well,you want to know how their lives unravel. the mystery surrounding the origin of the main character is a good part of the story for me. not all comics are of the lives and battles of superhero's. If you want scifi, suspense, mystery, like the good vs evil story line and appreaciate art, this is a really good series. some of the main characters are children and there are violent people in the story doing violent things, so I dont think i would have let my young son read this.

I'm not usually a big fan of the graphic novel genre, but these combine the conventions of a graphic novel with those of film and literature and marry the three together quite well. The Sweet Tooth series is full of all kinds of surprising twists and turns that make them a compelling read that's hard to put down.

Another volume Sweet Tooth is here and it's excellent like the rest of the series up to this point! If you've been reading up to this point I'm sure you'll enjoy it. The cause for the disease that's killed off the humans and left the hybrids is revealed and that's exciting. Similar to Y: The Last Man, the cause of the disease and why some are immune are interesting, but not the main focus. The characters still are, and in my opinion that's what has made this series great. Lemire is still writing great characters that tug at your heart strings and make you want to cheer them on at other points. Also, his work art is still the sketchy, raw style he usually utilizes (that I'm a huge fan of) and you can tell it's developing from volume to volume. The beginning was a little too wordy where Lemire provides several scripts from The Taxidermist's notebook to get an interesting glimpse at the character. But the text feels over abundant and feels like it disrupts the normal flow that Sweet Tooth has, slowing it down. While a nice touch, I believe it could have been edited down a bit. While not my favorite volume, Sweet Tooth vol 5 is awesome and I can't wait to see how Lemire wraps up Sweet Tooth in vol. 6!

Years from now Sweet Tooth will be seen as one of the best comics of this era. This volume helps solidify its place thanks to the craft of Jeff Lemire. Highly enjoyable.
