Now a TV show, Sweet Tooth began as a comic book series. Out of the Deep Woods collects issues #1-5.
Gus is a young boy living with his father deep in the Nebraska woods. They live isolated from the world outside. Oh, and Gus has antlers and other deer-like features, though we don't know why yet.
One day, Gus's father dies and he is rescued from would be kidnappers by Jepperd, a drifter. The two bond as Jepperd takes Gus along on his wanderings. Unfortunately, this initial story ends in betrayal.
Sweet Tooth is weird and dark but good. I am definitely up for more.
