As announced to on the DC COMICS/VERTIGO BLOG, Issue #40, shipping in December of this year will be the FINAL ISSUE of my monthly series SWEET TOOTH.

To be clear, THE BOOK HAS NOT BEEN CANCELLED by DC Comics. The decision to end Sweet Tooth is totally my own and based on the natural conclusion of the story I've been building over the last three years. I'd like to thank Dan Didio, Geoff Johns, Jim Lee and Karen Berger for all of there support of the book. I'd also like to thank all of the amazing editors I've worked with on Sweet tooth, Bob Schreck, Brandon Montclare, Pornsak Pichetshote, Greg Lockhard and Mark Doyle.

My full thoughts on the conclusion of Sweet Tooth can be read here  on Vertigo's Blog and you can also read my collaborator Jose Villarrubia's thoughts here.

Fans of Sweet Tooth, and my other creator owned work, can expect announcements on my next creator owned projects later this year!

Until then, Gus, Jepperd and I thank you for all of your the support. The final storyline, THE WILD KINGDOM, begins with #36 and will conclude with a DOUBLE-SIZED, FULLY-PAINTED #40 in December and I'm confident in saying that it will be the best work I've ever done! Also Issues 36-39 will feature 4-interlocking covers that create one big Sweet Tooth image. The first part of which is featured above!
