Sweet Tooth

Sweet Tooth is a DC Comic about a boy named Gus who is part deer, part human. When Gus leaves the forest in which he lives, he ends up in a post-apocalyptic environment. With the help of others from other children who are half animal like him, he must find answers to save the world.

The Netflix adaptation of the comic series is produced by Jim Mickle and Beth Schwartz. The latter contributed to Arrow, another DC hero who made his way to the small screen. Now that Netflix has ended its partnership with Marvel, the era of DC Comics appears to have arrived. Netflix previously made a live action remake about the archangel Lucifer.
