FROM THE VAULT: SWEET TOOTH PART 2
The Monthly Grind....
Last installment I talked in detail about the origins of Sweet Tooth and how it ended up as a monthly series at Vertigo. But that is obviously only half the story. And what came next is a lot harder to discuss because it was really a blur. Both writing and drawing a monthly comic is a very time-intensive and grueling schedule. So, once the book started, it never really stopped. The term “monthly grind” is very accurate. You finish one issue and you are jumping right into the next. This sounds like I’m complaining, but I’m not, I absolutely loved the grind. I loved the routine and the schedule, and I loved having this story that I could explore and expand in any direction I wanted to. Not every day was a joy, of course, there were weeks and months where I wanted it to just be over so I could get a break, but all in all, I loved drawing Sweet Tooth.
