weirddetectiveFred Van Lente has signed a deal with Dark Horse Comics. He plans to write the story for a new five-part “Lovecraftian” miniseries entitled Weird Detective.

Guiu Vilanova will create the illustrations and Maurício Wallace will serve as the colorist. The publisher has set the launch date for June 15.

Here’s more from the press release: “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 fighting 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.”
