THE PLACE WHERE IT ALL BEGAN After years of the deadly Affliction, those who remainÑthe surviving humans and the new generation of animal-hybrid childrenÑare searching for answers. And one place in all the world seems to have them: Northern Alaska. It was here, in this faraway, frozen wilderness that the Affliction first took root, before eventually spreading its devastation throughout the globe. Gus, Jepperd and their friends are traveling north to the remote research outpost where Gus was born, in the hope that understanding the plagueÕs source will lead to a cure. What power was unleashed in the frozen tundra? Can it be stopped? But even if the survivors reach their goal, there might not be anything left of humanity to saveÉ Gus and JepperdÕs postapocalyptic journey comes to a heart-stopping, heartbreaking conclusion in this final deluxe hardcover, written and illustrated by Jeff Lemire (DESCENDER, GREEN ARROW) with additional art by Matt Kindt (MIND MGMT). SWEET TOOTH: THE DELUXE EDITION BOOK THREE collects issues 26-40 as well as never-before-seen sketches and an interview with the author and Damon Lindelof (co-creator of LOST and THE LEFTOVERS).
