"Sweet Tooth, Volume 1: Out Of The Deep Woods", by Jeff Lemire

The winner of last week's poll was Sweet Tooth!

Years ago during the Affliction, billions of people died and children were born as human/animal hybrids. Gus, a human/deer hybrid, was raised in isolation for years, but after his father dies, hunters come to capture him. He is rescued by a mysterious man named Jepperd who tells him that he will take him to a preserve for hybrid children. While Gus is never sure if he should trust Jepperd, he goes with him because he is lonely. What follows is a voyage through what is left of the country, during which Jepperd gives Gus candy (and the nickname "Sweet Tooth") and fights through all of the obstacles that are in their way, usually with violent methods.

For this meetup, we're going to be heading back to the Overlook, which is located at 225 East 44th Street, between 2nd and 3rd Avenue. I'll have some tables reserved on the second floor for the group, so just head on up when you arrive.

Hope to see you there!

    Always a great group to hang out with. The discussion starts with the book we all read and then moves on to all types of "nerd talk." I look forward to hanging out with this group.
