Lemire takes a break from art duties and the main storyline here, and it’s a really pleasant surprise. Matt Kindt is an artist I’m not really familiar with, I know he did a section in an earlier issue of Sweet Tooth, and I think he did a Black Widow story for Strange Tales, but he really impressed me here, his work really suits the Victorian era, and it’s similar enough to Lemire’s style that it didn’t make the book feel too different. The story of James Thacker is very interesting, but I’m not too sure how it all connects up with what Gus and Jepperd and everyone are up to in the present day. Gus saw a vision of an igloo in a recent issue, and that plague could be the same one that wipes everyone out, but those are just guesses. I bet we see an antler baby next issue.
