Top Customer Reviews
We’re introduced into an extremely creepy character, Walter Fish, when the group comes across a safe haven called The Dam. It’s a great find, but at what cost? There is a lot of foreboding here in as to what’s to come and a major cliff hanger… I can’t wait to continue on! This series just keeps getting better!
Jeff Lemire brings the series back up to its original high quality after a rocky third book with this excellent fourth volume "Endangered Species". The pacing is a lot quicker as the group heads out into the snowy wilderness leaving the urban grime and distracting street gangs behind, and we get the chance to get to know some of the fringe members of the group.
There's a strong anti-science, pseudo-pro-religion argument being made by Lemire in these books that I don't find off-putting but become more curious to see where he's going with it as the series progresses. These religious overtones manifest in this book in a great limbo sequence painted in watercolour and containing lots of dream fantasy images.
The writing is top notch, the art is as good as you would expect (and some guest artists chip in a few pages - Nate Powell, Matt Kindt, and Emi Lenox), and the story is developing strongly in pleasingly mysterious ways. "Endangered Species" is an excellent addition to this series and makes me want to read more "Sweet Tooth". Roll on, November...
