A new release from Dark Horse Comics will poke fun at genre motifs.  Vinegar Teeth is a four-issue miniseries from Damon Gentry (Sabertooth Swordsman) and Troy Nixey (Jenny Finn, The Black Sinister, Trout). The first issue is due in stores on January 24.

The mash-up of genre fiction pairs short-tempered, alcoholic supercop Artie Buckle with Vinegar Teeth, a hideous Lovecraftian monster who has a heart of gold, on a mission to rescue besieged Brick City.

Nixey notably worked on another Lovecraftian tale: Neil Gaiman’s Only the End of the World Again.  Originally published by Oni Press, Dark Horse is releasing a deluxe hardcover edition of the book on January 24 as well (see "Dark Horse Resurrects Lovecraftian Neil Gaiman Story").
