Vertigo Comics has released the first issue of Sweet Tooth, an ongoing comic book about an young man with antlers in a post-apocalyptic world, for free as a pdf download. I was unsure about the first issue of Sweet Tooth (and it must not have impressed me that much, because I haven't continued reading the series,) but it's a free comic book that is at least interesting for not being about a man in tights.

On re-reading it today, I found that I liked it more than I did the first time I read it. The main character is the obvious continuation of a long line of idiots in literature, and the idea of a road trip with him is not entirely unsatisfying; he could be a good fresh set of eyes with which to see a post-apocalyptic world. The first collected volume of Sweet Tooth will be published in May; maybe I'll take a look at that and reconsider the series.
