‘Sweet Tooth’ Trailer: The Netflix Adaptation of the Post-Apoc Fairytale Comic Looks Fucking Dope
Motherfucking Sweet Tooth used to be my jam back in the day, and I think the Netflix adaptation will be the same. If I’m leveling you, face-to-face, crotch-to-crotch? I forgot this shit was coming! But now this shit is at the front of my rotting lobes after the drop of this new trailer.
Netflix keeps snatching up hit comics from outside the DC and Marvel Universes. Next month, they’ll premiere Jupiter’s Legacy, based on the comic by Mark Millar and Frank Quitely. (Netflix now owns Millar’s company, so it is the first of potentially many more shows and films of his creations.) Then, the very next month, they’ve got Sweet Tooth, the “post-apocalyptic fairytale” series inspired by a Jeff Lemire comic originally published by the DC Comics’ horror imprint Vertigo.
The Sweet Tooth TV show was originally ordered several years ago by Hulu, but the project eventually transferred over to the ’Flix. The first trailer just debuted online, and it looks very faithful to Lemire’s books, which follow a boy named Gus (played here by Christian Convery) on an adventure through an America that’s been decimated by a mysterious virus (timely!) and is now populated by “hybrids” that are part human and part animal.
