Rising star Jeff Lemire has taken the comic book world by storm as a writer and artist. His quirky sensibility and emotional storytelling are captivating (even when the stories turn creepy or violent). So, what better gift to give this holiday season than ... the works of Jeff Lemire? If you know someone who likes family stories, animals, superheroes and the color red, pick up the comic book IGN calls “wondrously grotesque,” ANIMAL MAN issues 1-4 written by Lemire. If you know someone who likes classic horror monsters who kick butt, pick up the comic book that THE ONION/A.V. Clubs says “combines humor over-the-top action,” FRANKENSTEIN: AGENT OF S.H.A.D.E. issues 1-4 written by Lemire. If you know someone who likes post-apocalyptic stories, hybrid human/animals, or chocolate, pick up SWEET TOOTH Volumes 1-3 written and drawn by Lemire, the series USA TODAY says is “like Mad Max with antlers. . . . spellbinding and offbeat.” And if you have money left on your gift cards January 25th, pick up all the above along with SWEET TOOTH Vol. 4 featuring the Endangered Species storyline for yourself!
