This June, New York Times best-selling author Fred Van Lente (Marvel Zombies, Resurrectionists) returns to Dark Horse for brand new creator-owned series Weird Detective.

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, featuring artwork from Guiu Vilanova (Conan the Avenger)

Speaking about the series, Van Lente said: “I love H. P. Lovecraft, I love cop shows, and their unholy bastard child is Weird Detective. 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.”

The series, which originally debuted in the pages of Dark Horse Presents, introduces us to Detective Sebastian Greene, a man who fights against the shadows of loathsome horrors from beyond space and time who are seeking to usher in the unimaginable evil of the Old Ones.  The only thing is… he isn’t a man at all.  As they say, it takes a monster to catch a monster.

The first issue of Weird Detective contains all twenty-four pages of its three-part debut in Dark Horse Presents, plus twenty-two brand-new pages—all for the regular cover price of $3.99, and goes on sale June 15th.
