Favorite volume of the series, and nearly my favorite within the publisher. Only Fables exceeds above this title in the Vertigo line, for me. This installment is so damn exciting, that i neglected to pace myself entirely. I ate it up and I want more, Jeff. I dont understand why this series has dropped in readers, it's brilliant.

Not going to give anything away. Just know that this is a much more exciting chapter. Gus and Jeppard display an uncanny relatability, yet obscurity that only Lemiere seems capable of orchestrating. Give attention back to Sweet Tooth. It's only getting better.

We open to Jepperd teaming up with the Militia to rescue Gus from The Preserve. Jepperd fights for Gus and The Preserve crumbles. During the battle, we see Gus start to stand up for himself and it's so great to see him grow up and take responsibility. We're also starting to get answers as to why the plague happened and where the hybrids came from. Things started getting REAL!!

Lemire did a great job juggling both Gus and Jepperd’s two stories simultaneously and then converged them seamlessly. There was so much truth to Jepperd’s reflections on his wife and the details that we're keeping her alive in his mind. And the biggest shock of all came when he got confirmation that his son didn't actually die and he's very much alive.

A nice reference to the first volume appeared as we find out that Gus’ “father” wasn’t just rambling prophecies, there were actually directions to help understand what was happening. The story now takes us up North and we’re left with a lot of questions…

I really enjoyed how action packed this one was and that it answered more of the questions that are eating at me. I related to the characters so much more with provoking things in real life to what was happening (like Louise). Each volume has gotten better and better! Volume 4-6 arrive any day now and I can’t wait to round out this series. It’s amazing!!

I often don't know what to do with Jeff Lemire's work exactly, and Sweet Tooth is a prime example. A critical darling, a fascinating concept, and touches of real lived-in past give this comic a pop, but the tendency to go post-Apocalyptic tropes limits how fresh this really is. This volume seems to back track a bit on the quality that had been brought up a notch in the last volume: the twist ending here and revelations for Jepperd actually don't have the impact they should. This mistaken narrative calculation also means that the build-up seems anti-climatic and focus not the story seems to lose its way. In some ways though, this feels like Lemire is building something larger up with a brutal but somewhat plotting center piece. I haven't lost my patience for Gus or Lemire, and this is still better than most comics even if it seems to be bobbing in the ocean in terms of its own quality.

This series had my attention from the moment I first read the description. With only 3 collections so far it is clearly building momentum. Animal Armies is the best so far, full of smart, meaningful dialogue and the artwork is able to capture a surprising amount of tenderness and terror. I love this series. For this price I think everyone should give it a chance.

Absolutely loved it. Definitely has that kind of dark post-apocalyptic feel that's sort of being run into the ground these days but somehow feels different. The mythic characters and backstory definitely give it something new and interesting.
I started reading the first one and couldn't put them down. So sad there are only 6 books. I would love to see more but felt like it gave me enough to feel closure and satisfied.

Gus aka Sweet Tooth is at the behest of evil scientists and Jepperd is rallying some questionable allies to free him - but will he be too late?

I thought this third volume was a lot of back tracking from Jeff Lemire in terms of the story. The whole point of the first two books is basically undone in this third book and, besides learning a few new things about Gus, thought that it was more of the same from the first two volumes. The sort of desperate survivors fighting amongst themselves kind of stuff, plus Jepperd has a real sucker punch of a revelation at the end that I thought was very clumsily put in by Lemire and felt kind of cheap.

The artwork is great as always and lends itself well to the truly horrifying images in the book.

Overall though I felt this was a pretty weak book that sets up the story for the next one but, looking back at the story so far, it felt a bit anti-climactic. If you're following the series then this is a book you'll have to read but is by far the weakest of the three so far. Still, hopefully it'll pick up in the next volume.

Great book, and good artwork. A multi threat from Jeff Lemire. I love "Sweet Tooth" and what it is doing with the story. I find after I finish to be wish I could grab the next book and start. You know you are hooked when that happens.

A great comic that keeps your attention from start to finish. I would suggest to start on volume 1 so you're not missing anything important. I read a lot of comics and this has to be one of my favorites.
