He then published his Essex County Trilogy through Top Shelf Publications, won the 2008 Joe Shuster Canadian Comic Book Award for Outstanding Cartoonist and the 2008 Doug Wright Award for Best Emerging Talent.

He is currently producing his new, ongoing title Sweet Tooth for DC/Vertigo. This action-adventure story follows Gus, a little boy born with antlers, who left to survive in an American landscape decimated a decade earlier by a mysterious pandemic. USA Today calls Sweet Tooth “Spellbinding and offbeat.” and comic book artist, Frank Quitely says, “Sweet Tooth is a dark, moving, and intriguing story, and Jeff Lemire’s gentle writing and raw, expressive art work perfectly together.”
