Jeff Lemire the creator of Sweet Tooth talks about creating a more "hopeful" post-apocalypse



-Original comic book creator Jeff Lemire talks about the stark contrast between the comics and the series with the series having an overall bright and colorful look being filmed in locations such as New Zealand.
-Lemire thought about how the "visual language would start to feel a bit tired" for the typical dark apocalypse look and agreed that the show should have a different direction.
-He calls it the "post-post-apocalypse": "where you’re coming out of the ugliness, and the world is starting to return to nature"
-He also comments on how the show about a deadly virus was being created around the same time as the pandemic, with the first episode being filmed in 2019 and how the crew were finally being able to finish the rest of the season by fall of 2020. It was a surreal experience watching the show with his son who is the same age as the main character (also named Gus) during the middle of the pandemic.

Honestly this post is just an excuse to talk about the series since I barely seen any conversation about it on here. Its definitely a lot better than I thought it would be especially since the trailers didn't sell it well at all.
