Aftershock Comics have just announced details of their latest series BABYTEETH, from writer Donny Cates (God Country, The Paybacks) and artist Garry Brown (Black Road), set to hit shelves this June.
The series introduces us to sixteen year old Sadie Ritter, who is nine months pregnant and scared out of her sweet, nerdy mind. However, things are about to get a hell of a lot worse for her, given the fact that her unborn baby is actually the antichrist, and is set to break open the barriers between the earthly and demonic planes. So yeah, not great news.
Speaking about the series, Cates said: “Babyteeth is so much fun to write. After spending much of my career writing gruff anguished heroes and dusty old men I really wanted to sink my teeth into something that had a lot of heart and a lot of fun to it. That being said, I suppose it’s telling that my idea of fun is a young girl giving birth to the antichrist. But honestly, Sadie Ritter is one of my hands down favorite people in the whole world. I love her dearly and I know you will too. Her son can be a handful, though…”
He added, “And might I just say, that doing the book with AfterShock has been amazing. Everyone at the company has been fired up and 100% onboard since I turned the first pitch in. Their excitement is infectious and makes the whole creative team really step their game up. I tend to think fans can tell when a creative team is having fun on a book. And if even a tenth of Aftershocks enthusiasm bleeds through on this one, you are all going to have a fucking blast reading Babyteeth.”
Described as a mix between Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Rosemary’s Baby, and featuring lettering from Taylor Esposito and colours from Mark Englert, BABYTEETH #1 goes on sale this June, and you can feast your eyes on some of Brown’s preliminary artwork below.
