CBR Review: Sweet Tooth #15

I recently reviewed Sweet Tooth #15 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "The cover for the issue is one of the best of the year. It's stark, raw, and grabs your attention instantly. While not a style that Lemire uses in the comic, it is indicative of Lemire’s approach to the art, which is to try different things, play around, try to grab the reader’s attention, and produce art that demands you look at it. The first page has Gus and his friends walking as part of their trek back to the forest and, in the background, they’re passing some rocks that, by the fourth and final panel of the page, turn out to be the title of the book and issue. It’s a visually arresting way to work the title into the issue while also not disturbing the story, as the characters ignore that it shares their landscape."
