Have you had a chance to check out the first season of Sweet Tooth on Netflix? The series reveals a world that has been ravaged by a deadly pandemic… but hope shines through, including in the form of hybrid babies: part human, part animal, and all adorable.
Based on the comic created by Jeff Lemire and published by DC Comics imprint Vertigo, Sweet Tooth follows the story of Gus (Christian Convery), a deer hybrid who ends up crossing paths with Big Man (Nonso Anozie). As they continue their journey together, they meet up with many others who have survived into the brave new world… but not everyone proves to be an ally!
