Sweet Tooth #28 (Kill Them! Spoilers)

Holy shit, that was hardcore, the double page spread of the battle between Thacker and his men and the Inuit was shocking in it’s violence, that dude had his head blown clean off! I think the impact of this violence was made all the more powerful by Matt Kindt’s art, he has used such a painterly, old-fashioned style in this arc, that the violence feels out of place, like Norman Rockwell torture porn or something. Kindt is a great fit for this book, and it’d be great for him to come back the next time Lemire needs some more time. I was also shocked by how callously Lemire had Thacker dispose of the Deer-Baby (or Proto-Gus), just chucking him in a cage to die. Dark stuff, and more evidence that this is the most depressing book in all of comics. But in a good way. I’ve really enjoyed this little detour, it’s added a lot of depth to the back-story of the series, but I’m more than ready to get back to the main story now.
