Dark Horse Comics has announced a new lovecraftian comic titled Weird Detective from writer Fred Van Lente (Conan the Avenger, Resurrectionists) and illustrator Guiu Vilanova (Conan the Avenger).
From the Press Release:
Cthulhu cops, the Innsmouth Mafia, telepathic cats and other crimes against sanity stalk the streets of New York in this pulpy stew of crime, horror and mystery from the writers of Marvel Zombies and X-Men Noir. The genre-bending five-issue miniseries includes colors by Josan Gonzalez and Dark Horse newcomer Mauricio Wallace.
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 fightng 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.
The first issue of Weird Detective, containing twenty-two amazing pages, will be available June 15th for the low price of $3,99.
