Here are two genres I never expected to see – Lovecraftian horror and the Buddy-Cop tale. Dark Horse is doing it with Troy Nixey and Damon Gentry in an upcoming series titled “Vinegar Teeth.”
Artie Buckle is a grade ‘A’ schmuck. His excessive fondness for booze compliments his flash temper, but hold their feet to the fire, his fellow officers would agree; Artie is one helluva cop. He’s gonna need that scrap of goodwill because Brick City is under siege from its citizenry and to top it off Artie’s been saddled with the city’s newest hero as his partner; a hideous, monstrous, but completely likable, extra-dimensional being named Vinegar Teeth. Can Artie pull his head out long enough to work together with a Lovecraftian monster with a heart of gold and set Brick City back on its feet?
I think I’m completely on board with this series, based on the description alone. Vinegar Teeth is a four-issue mini-series that kicks off on January 24, 2018.
