She has a wonderful support system, but being a teen mom is hard enough without your baby being the antichrist.This is a horror graphic novel, but it's also a story of family and motherhood.

    I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest reviewBefore I started this I was kind of expecting it to be just another Rosemary's Baby esque story; fun but nothing really special. In a lot of ways this story still is pretty standard so far, but the characters more than make up for it. Sadie was such a great narrator and her dad and sister were really cool as well. It's nice that their reactions to things are not ne...

    It's official. Donny Cates has entered my top 5 writers. Like seriously...I love almost everything I read by him! So we got this story that sounds familiar. A 16 year old girl is having a baby. Nothing we haven't seen on MTV right? However, this baby is the son of the devil, or the devil himself, or a demon, or...well we don't know yet. However, it's not normal. Big ass black eyes when born, creates earthquakes, and eats blood. This is not the ty...

    A completely normal 16 year old girl gives birth to the anti-christ. This has got to be good, right? It was good, but I wish there had been a little bit more to the first part of the story. With all the action that was going on I felt like it wasn't as much as there should be for the anti-christ being born and about to destroy the world. My favorite character was the sister, she was a drug addict, yes, but she got shit done and was VERY intimidat...

    Can't wait to read the next one!!

    a teenage girl gives birth to the antichrist. this is fantastic, i cannot wait for volume 2.
  • melissa
    Pretty cool storyline as I think most children are hellspawn. Most of the interior artwork is serviceable, nothing really stood out. But, there are some great alternative cover renditions in the gallery at the end. No idea why a story about a demon child feels the need to bleep out bad words.*Digital review copy provided by NetGalley and the publisher.

    Read the full review here - Review: Babyteeth Volume 1Thank you Netgalley for providing me with a free copy in exchange for an honest review.Babyteeth is the story of Sadie, a 16 year old girl who gets pregnant, hides her pregnancy from everyone but her sister and is scared of the consequences. Sounds simple enough till you factor in that her child is an evil being of untold power known as The Final Son. She promptly proceeds to name him Clark (a...
  • Krutula
    Billed as a Juno-meets-The Omen kind of story, Babyteeth is a retrospective story narrated by Sadie, a teen mom who discovers she got more than she bargained for. Part humor, part horror, it starts with how the birth of her son literally causes an earthquake. Then comes the part where she has her family's support to survive what's coming ahead. Sadie is a little scared at first, as expected of any teen mom. Her ex-marine dad and her delinquent ol...
  • Diane Hernandez
    Epic new comic that reads like a classic horror story.Sadie is 16 and giving birth during a series of earthquakes in Salt Lake City Utah. The earthquakes stop immediately after her son Clark is born. At the same time, a mysterious group called The Silhouette is attempting to kill Clark believing that he is the Anti-Christ. To reveal any more of the plot would ruin the surprising twists to come.Babyteeth is the best horror comic I've read this yea...
  • Jamie Connolly
    Excellent. The writing is exactly what it should be. Right on point. The art I’m still not sure about. It’s scratchy and quick-handed. I don’t have a specific preference when it comes to art. I like some more than others but this style is just new to me and hasn’t grown on me yet. In any case, the story, theme and plot and characters and style are all great. A baby is born and shakes the world and is prophesied the antichrist and it drink...

    Ok, maybe more like 4.5. It wasn't a home run, but it was close.As if being a new mom at 16 isn't hard enough, Sadie then finds out she has given birth to the Antichrist. Luckily for Sadie, her kick-ass, hardcore sister and ex-Marine Corp, pilot father have her back, even if she is the mother of a demon. When a shadowy organization attempts to kill her newborn (apparently Antichrist children are a common thing), Sadie's family rallies together an...
  • Theediscerning
    This is a decent modern retelling of The Omen - a teenaged girl gets pregnant with the Antichrist, and once a load of earthquakes and hellfire come to the world when she is dropping him, two contrasting armies of shadowy warriors are after getting their way. It's rather scrappy, all told - both the artwork and the way the narrative is jagged and higgledy-piggledy to portray the thoughts of the boy's mother one year on from the birth. It's not as ...
  • Lynne Premo
    Whether meant to be an allegory for how children suck the life out of mothers or just a great story about a close, loving family that may involve a sociopath as well as the Antichrist (or, more accurately, AN Antichrist), Babyteeth was fun, tender, and thought-provoking. Some best bits: a demon raccoon, a barely legal assassin with some morals, incredible writing about family and motherhood (that was a pleasant surprise coming from a team of men)...
  • Phillip
    I liked this book despite the fact that not a whole lot happens. It's not dragged out or stagnant, but it spends a lot of space setting the foundation. Sadie is a 16 year old girl that gets pregnant with what may or may not be the antichrist. There is certainly some weird stuff that goes along with the pregnancy/birth. And part of the story is just her trying to deal with having a baby, no matter how strange it is.There are some cool elements of ...
  • Camilo Guerra
    Una adolescente embarazada tiene al anticristo. Fin.En serio, de eso trata el tomo, pero con mas cositas, como sectas, brujos, un mapache demonio, un niño con colmillos que solo se alimenta de entretenido, pero no mucho mas, pero es la forma en que lo cuenta Donny Cates , que hace que lo quieras seguir leyendo, saber que sigue, que se oculta, mientras el arte de Garry Brown es sucio, dinamico y con el suficiente detalle para que dist...

    ‘The world trembled as the boy approached. And when he arrived, it cowered like a beaten dog.’A horror graphic novel about a 16 year old girl who unknowingly gives birth to the Antichrist.The story bounces back and forth between the first few months of the baby being born and what appears to be a post apocalyptic time.The artwork and storytelling are great. It has left me intrigued for more.
  • tyto
    I received this from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.Sadie is 16 and pregnant. With the Antichrist. Billed as Juno meets The Omen, it's an interesting premise with a bit of a cheesy execution. In the first volume, you'll meet assassins, a shadowy organization, demon raccoons, and warlocks. It's probably my fault for expecting something a little more serious. If you go into expecting something a bit silly, you'll probably enjoy it.
  • Kirsty
    LOVED this. One of the best comics I've read all year. The characters are strong and relatable, and the dialogue is snappy - in this way it reminded me of Saga. The world is building slowly but I'm intrigued to see how it develops and plays with concepts of religion – in this way it reminded me of Preacher. The alternate covers at the end were amazing – I loved the Rosemary's Baby pastiche. Already looking forward to the next issue.
  • Donald Armfield
    I won a copy of this book from a FB giveaway. My friend also recommended it to me awhile back. How do I feel about it? The story line follows a teenager (16) who gives birth to something a certain group is calling an apocalypse in the making. I'm a little intrigued to see what happens next but overall it was rather plain.
  • Bianca Walters
    This is a story about the birth of the antichrist. And the cult that wants to kill him. And the cult that wants to save and worship him. And his loving family. Babyteeth occupies a familiar horror space with style and confidence - providing a seamless mixture of absurdity, emotion, and unapologetic darkness.
  • Donna
    Teenage Sadie gives birth to the Antichrist.That summation will either get you to put this on your to be read stack or not. The story is well narrated and you care about and root for the main characters. I'm not a fan of the art - too rough and dark for me - but it gets the job done.I'll definitely be reading volume two.
  • Taylor
    I received a copy from netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Well.... I wanted a horror graphic novel and this was definitely terrifying to me. This almost reminded me of rosemary's baby, and pretty much solidified my decision to NEVER have children. Nope nope nope. I will be having nightmares for a while. This is good!
  • Heather Brown
    Sadie is 16 and mom to the antichrist. NBD right? Maybe for her, since she has a former Marine for a dad, and an angry badass sister to help her fight off assassins and help change diapers. Clever and cutting, Babyteeth is an amazing read. I can't wait for the next volume to come out. This volume has some great additional cover work in the back that I LOVE!
  • Abby
    I requested this book from Netgalley because I was intrigued at the premise and really liked the cover - but didn't really expect much from the comic, itself. It surprised me - though it wasn't a 5 star read, it was reasonably good, and I will keep on with the series.
  • Nathaniel Darkish
    I dug this a lot more than I expected. It's a surprisingly fresh take on the whole antichrist story we've seen time and time again in things like The Omen. The art is the proper level of creepy. All and all quite compelling. I'll definitely be picking up volume 2!
  • Sheri
    Super creepy and weird, a bit absurd at times, but I liked it.
  • Elia
    16-year old girl gives birth to a blood-drinking, earthquake causing baby, who may or may not be the Antichrist. Though he probably is. Maybe.
  • Brian
    Really liked this novel approach. I’ve read a few similar to this premise, but this one is teasing just the right amount of action to keep me reading.
