Written and drawn by Lemire, the Vertigo Comics series Sweet Tooth ran for 40 issues from 2009 until 2013. The series tells the story of Gus (played by Christian Convery), a young orphan who happens to be a human/animal hybrid, attempting to survive—and learn the truth about who and what he is—in a world ravaged by plague. He’s joined by a man named Jepperd (Nonso Anozie), who reluctantly agrees to look after Gus in his journey.
The cast also includes Will Forte as Gus’ father as well as James Brolin as the voice of the narrator.
