The soundtrack single from the comic book VINEGAR TEETH!
Now considered a somewhat obscure golden oldie, “Share That Nice Daydream” was the only hit for pastoral pop-folk recording artist Colorado Jonesy. It fell off the pop charts the week after its #59 debut. A decade later, the song was resurrected to prominence in a series of successful television advertisements for “Dream Whiff” brand deodorant, then quickly forgotten once again. Colorado Jonesy released highly un-acclaimed folk albums–obsessively praising Mother Nature–every year until his death in 1987. He died doing what he loved, hi-speed stunt speedboat racing with no regard for safety regulations.
Vinegar Teeth is a new series from Troy Nixey & Damon Gentry. Issue #2 is out this week, Feb. 21! Details: https://www.darkhorse.com/Comics/29-885/Vinegar-Teeth-2
“A new release from Dark Horse Comics will poke fun at genre motifs. Vinegar Teeth is a four-issue miniseries from Damon Gentry (Sabertooth Swordsman) and Troy Nixey (Jenny Finn, The Black Sinister, Trout). The first issue is due in stores on January 24.
The mash-up of genre fiction pairs short-tempered, alcoholic supercop Artie Buckle with Vinegar Teeth, a hideous Lovecraftian monster who has a heart of gold, on a mission to rescue besieged Brick City.” – Betsy Gomez for ICV2

Aaron and I spent several years pitching and forging and crying blood tears and co-creating our debut black & white graphic novel and we’re very proud of the positive feedback it’s received, and hopefully it’ll reach an even larger audience with this new edition featuring 32 new color pages of short stories and art, in preparation for the ambitious sequel we’re working on!
“Snagged the SABERTOOTH SWORDSMAN hardcover by Damon Gentry & Aaron Conley; hilarious, jawdropping, wholly badass work.” —Adam Warren (Empowered)
RIYL: Fans of the wild and weird and fantastical—such as Brandon Graham’s Prophet, Rangel Jr. & Ziritt’s Space Riders, Jeff Smith’s Bone, Andrew Maclean’s Headlopper, Johnny Ryan’s Prison Pit, works of Moebius, Heavy Metal Magazine, old school video games, or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles—will pop a cork for Sabertooth Swordsman!
“Sabertooth Swordsman is the most exciting graphic novel I’ve seen in a long loooong time. An absolute masterpiece that is thrillingly original and alive with kinetic energy! Damon and Aaron should be instant superstars!”— Mike Allred (Madman)
