FRED VAN LENTE DIGS INTO LOVECRAFTIAN MYSTERY WITH WEIRD DETECTIVE
I love me some supernatural detective stories. From Criminal Macabre to Monster World, there's something really great about mixing private eye tales with monsters and demons. This is why Weird Detective from writer Fred Van Lente, artist Guiu Vilanova, and colorist Mauricio Wallace sounds like a book tailor made for me. Set to debut this June from Dark Horse Comics, the comic features Cthulhu cops, the Innsmouth Mafia, telepathic cats, and other crimes against sanity that stalk the streets of New York. If that's not enough to sell you, here's the write-up from the publisher:
The city has been plagued by a pattern of crimes too weird and bizarre for the average detective. Lurking in the evidence are shadows of loathsome horrors from beyond space and time, seeking to usher in the unimaginable evil of the Old Ones. The only man capable of fighting against the unspeakable terrors isn’t a man at all. Detective Sebastian Greene is one of them—it takes a monster to catch a monster.
“I love H. P. Lovecraft, I love cop shows, and their unholy bastard child is Weird Detective,” Van Lente says. “Seeing cosmic horror at the street crime level opens up both genres to incredible new possibilities. Sebastian Greene is just the person to be your guide through this dangerous world, even as his own partner tries to figure out his dark secret.”
Weird Detective is a five-issue mini-series. The first issue, set for release on June 15th, 2016 will contain all twenty-four pages of its three-part debut, originally published in Dark Horse Presents, plus another twenty-two brand-new pages. That's forty-six pages of content for just $3.99.
