Press Release

Sweet Tooth is one of the most iconic series originally published under Vertigo is returning this November from Jeff Lemire and colorist José Villarubia. Titled Sweet Tooth: The Return, the sequel series is not a rehash or even a sequel. As the DC Comics press release puts it it’s

“A bold re-imagining of the Sweet Tooth mythology; taking elements of the original series and remixing them into something familiar, but totally new. A divided world. A planet long ago past the point of devastation. And at the center of it all, a child who didn’t ask to be born into any of this, but who has no choice but to try and forge some life for himself. His visions and dreams may not be real at all…they may just be fiction. But they are hope. And sometimes hope is enough.”

Check out the cover to the first issue.

The news comes just a few weeks after Netflix officially announced a Sweet Tooth TV show was in the works produced by Robert Downey Jr. The upcoming series will fall under DC Black Label and will release in comic shops and digitally November 3, 2020.

For even more details read the official DC Comics press release below.

Once upon a time there was a little boy named Gus. He had antlers and lived with his father in a little cabin in the woods. Then his father died, and the big man with cold eyes took Gus away. Gus went on many great adventures, found friends, love, happiness, family, and acceptance.

Now, years later…it begins again. A young boy with antlers and deer-like feature wakes in a bizarre and completely foreign world where the last humans struggle to survive. They tell the boy he is special, he is chosen, and that he alone can lead them back to a world dominated by the oppressive Hybrids.

Sweet Tooth: The Return is no re-hash of the original series, but rather a bold re-imagining of the Sweet Tooth mythology; taking elements of the original series and remixing them into something familiar, but totally new. A divided world. A planet long ago past the point of devastation. And at the center of it all, a child who didn’t ask to be born into any of this, but who has no choice but to try and forge some life for himself. His visions and dreams may not be real at all…they may just be fiction. But they are hope. And sometimes hope is enough.
