The human race has reached its darkest hour. In the seven years since the Affliction first appeared, billions have died. All the children born since the plague are a strange new race of animal-human hybrids.
One of the few remaining humans, a drifter named Jepperd, has formed a bond with one such child, a sweet deer-like boy called Gus. But even among the hybrid children, Gus is an anomaly, seemingly born before the sickness began.
Believing that Gus’s history might be the key to the plague’s origins, Jepperd and the boy will journey north together to Alaska in the hope that if they can uncover the story of his birth, it will lead them to a cure for the sickness.
But the troubling question remains: If Gus isn’t a product of the Affliction, was he its cause?
Collects SWEET TOOTH #13-25, a pinup gallery from some of the comics industry’s top talents, and an introduction by colorist José Villarrubia.
Seven years ago, the Affliction raged like a forest fire, killing billions. The only children born since are part of a new breed of human-animal hybrids. Gus is one of these children, a boy with a sweet soul, a sweeter tooth-and the features of a deer.
When vicious hunters descend on his isolated forest home, a mysterious and violent man called Jepperd rescues Gus. The hulking drifter promises to lead Gus to The Preserve, a fabled safe haven for hybrid children.
As the two cross this dangerous new American frontier, will Jepperd corrupt the boy he's nicknamed Sweet Tooth, or will Gus's heart change Jepperd?

After years of the deadly Affliction, those who remain—the surviving humans and the new generation of animal-hybrid children—are searching for answers. And one place in all the world seems to have them: Northern Alaska.
It was here, in this faraway, frozen wilderness that the Affliction first took root, before eventually spreading its devastation throughout the globe. Gus, Jepperd and their friends are traveling north to the remote research outpost where Gus was born, in the hope that understanding the plague’s source will lead to a cure.
What power was unleashed in the frozen tundra? Can it be stopped? But even if the survivors reach their goal, there might not be anything left of humanity to save…
