New Comics I Am Reading

I've tried the first two issues of Vinegar Teeth, and am very happy. sort of a monster/horror/humor/cop-plus-weird-blob-with-teeth crime-story. the art is like something from the old Eerie or Creepy magazines--but with a slightly impish look to it, as opposed to a moody or frightening art style. there is swearing and gore, so Discretion advised, but I am glad I took a chance. the ad at the end of issue # 2 says # 3 is the "penultimate chapter", so although I wasn't clear on this at first, I guess Vinegar Teeth is planned for only 4 issues (unless we get follow-ups due to success). no graphic novel yet, of course--too early.
