↳Sweet Tooth by Jeff Lemire
I LOVE anything post-apocalyptic, and have always thought people look better with horns, so when I first stumbled across Sweet Tooth in college, I thought it was the coolest thing ever. I never read it all in one go though, so thats the plan tonight. SWEET TOOTH #COMICBINGE!
A cross between Bambi and Cormac McCarthy’s The Road, SWEET TOOTH tells the story of Gus, a rare new breed of human/animal hybrid children, has been raised in isolation following an inexplicable pandemic that struck a decade earlier. Now, with the death of his father he’s left to fend for himself … until he meets a hulking drifter named Jepperd who promises to help him. Jepperd and Gus set out on a post-apocalyptic journey into the devastated American landscape to find ‘The Preserve’ a refuge for hybrids.

AMC is adapting Preacher
The network is teaming with This Is the End duo Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg and Breaking Bad’s Sam Catlin to adapt Vertigo’s Preacher, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. ’
Based on Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s 1990s comic series from DC Comics imprint Vertigo, Preacher revolves around Rev. Jesse Custer, a badass Texas preacher who, after losing his faith, learns that God has left heaven and forsaken his duties. Jesse becomes the only one who is able to track God down and hold him responsible for his abdication. Tulip O’Hare, Jesse’s beer-guzzling vampire ex-girlfriend, accompanies him on his quest for answers. But the story doesn’t end there: The Saint of Killers, an immortal killing machine and Western lone gunman type, is hot on their trail with his sights set on Jesse. (via)
