A down-on-his-luck cop is partnered with a Lovecraftian monster in this unlikely mash-up. 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. Collects issues #1-#4 of the series Vinegar Teeth.
