Sweet Tooth: Volume 2: In Captivity

by Jeff Lemire, 140 pages

Gus meets some other kids in the same boat and sees more of the horror the outside world is willing to inflict on its own kind in the name of self-preservation. Meanwhile, we see Jepperd's backstory and learn what was so important about the contents of that duffle bag that he'd sell Gus away for it.

Sympathy, violence, fear, and despising fill these pages. I think I'm going to have to start following each volume of this series with an immediate chaser of sunshine and bunnies.
