As a human being, Artie Buckle is a grade-A schmuck. But he's a pretty damn fine cop. Good thing, because Brick City is under siege from its citizenry and only an unlikely partnership with a mysterious, tentacled, extra-dimensional being can put an end to the escalating crime problem. Thing is, there's a danger far greater than cub scouts robbing banks . . . oh my! Across space and time lies a far greater threat, not only to Brick City but to the world! Holy crap! Can the two get past their differences and save the planet? Well, of course they can, but getting there is gonna be a helluva fun ride.

o An epic genre mash-up: horror, hum more

    A period piece comic that takes its cue from the master of horror and Lethal Weapon? Now that spells out a recipe for success. Under the guiding hands of Damon and Troy, working alongside Guy, readers are brought into the world of Brick City. Come along with its top cop Artie Buckle, as he descends into a case that will be unlike any other. Action, adventure, horror, monsters, nothing short of pure wonderment for comics lovers.

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Jan 28, 2018

    Vinegar Teeth is described as Lovecraft meets Lethal Weapon and it definitely delivers on that premise. It's a quirky book, filled with equal parts horror and humor. You just have to go with it and enjoy the ride. This was already a strange world and it just got even stranger with the appearance of this creepy monster that's now serving as a police officer.

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jan 30, 2018

    Vinegar Teeth #1 is a fun and bizarre excursion into this pseudo-noir world that happens to have a monster. It is a surreal read with complementary art, and I can easily recommend it. Its strangely absorbing, and you should check it out. Read Full Review

    "Vinegar Teeth" #1 is an exciting debut, both funny and disgusting in equal measure. Read Full Review

    Something that's completely different that should appease anyone who thinks they've read it all. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jan 24, 2018

    I had no idea what to expect going into this other than some mild ideas based on the cover artwork, which isn't always the best guide anyway. What I got was a weird story with weird artwork that manages to work in a weird kind of way. It's intriguing with its style and approach and I love the panel layouts in how everything flows with it, from the little quirky angles to some of the larger spreads. Vinegar Teeth itself is what I'm most intrigued by in seeing how well this can be expanded on and shown but the general idea is definitely one that I like with an old school science fiction/weirdness level mixed in with a hard-nosed cop just doing his job. Definitely a series I'm looking forward to seeing just how much stranger it can get. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Clyde Hall Jan 26, 2018

    The blended genres and the creators' love for each sets Vinegar Teeth apart, the result posing the question, "What if Alfred Hitchcock produced a Cohen Brothers film, based on an H.P. Lovecraft story adapted by Charles Addams and John Huston?" The answer? We all win. Read Full Review

    I am not too sure how this series will unfold but I am excited for where it has started. It is a very strange story that definitely captures the mix of odd humour and horror and I cant wait to see what Vinegar Teeth has in store for us. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Chad Waller Jan 24, 2018

    Vinegar Teeth #1 is a really, really strange debut. I don't know if it's horror, comedy, or both, and while that does create some tonal issues, the premise and artwork make this one just too interesting for me to not follow, at least for now. Stay weird, 2018. Read Full Review
