    Babyteeth is the story of a sixteen-year-old girl who's become a new mother. 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. Despite the oddity of her circumstances, Sadie is such a lovable main character. She cherishes her little one more than anything from the start. Her family is so delightful, from her...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 ...
