How Netflix's Sweet Tooth Inspired Jeff Lemire to Return to the Comic Series

When cameras started rolling on the pilot of Sweet Tooth back in 2019, Jeff Lemire's Vertigo comic series had been fully wrapped up for at least seven years. As readers already know, the Eisner Award winning writer and artist went back to Sweet Tooth after almost ten years when he published Sweet Tooth: The Return as a six-issue miniseries through DC Black Label in November of 2020, and it was in part thanks to being on the set of the TV Series. Speaking with during a junket for the Netflix show, Lemire said that he never wanted to ruin the ending he wrote for Gus in the comics but seeing it come to life got his mind working in the world again.

Sweet Tooth's Nonso Anozie Reveals the Secrets Comic Creator Jeff Lemire Told Him

Jeff Lemire's Sweet Tooth comic series may recall that the Tommy Jepperd seen in the books was kind of modeled after another popular character, Marvel's Frank Castle aka The Punisher. For Netflix's TV adaptation some changes have been made, British-Nigerian Actor actor Nonso Anozie takes on the part and even though he doesn't have the grizzled old white guy look at all, he's just as dangerous and intimidating on screen as Jepperd is on the page. Considering the major changes, we asked Anozie if he read the comics to prep or just waited for the scripts, and like so many of us he said himself that he's "a comic book boy."
