The first Trade Paperback collection of my monthly Vertigo series SWEET TOOTH will be available everywhere May 12. It is available now for pre-order from your local book shop, comic book store and right here through amazon!

"Writer and artist Jeff Lemire has created the new 'must read' book with SWEET TOOTH."— GEOFF JOHNS

"Spellbinding and offbeat . . . emotionally charged." — USA TODAY "

"A grabber from the get-go..."— THE ONION

The first five issues of Jeff Lemire's acclaimed new series introduce 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.

Here's a great new rendition of Gus by Portland cartoonist Emi Lennox.

I've talked about how much I like Emi's work before, and right now she's getting ready to put together her first mini-comics, and needs your help. Emi is taking donations on her blog to help with the costs of printing her first books, so go help a rising comics talent get her start!

She will do a sketch f0r anyone who donates $5 or more!
