Vampires + Band + Comic Books= A New Comic Series

In today’s world, basically everything is debatable. Constantly there are debates about music, politics, religion, college football, burritos, and nearly everything else. What’s the one thing that’s not debatable? The enormously grand popularity of vampires. Yes, you read that right.

So when a major record label decides to sign a band comprised of vampires for its next big thing, a slew of other majors step up to the plate as well – signing bands consisting of zombies, werewolves, and any other creatures you can think of.

Such is the world of PERFECT TEETH. Paper + Plastick Records’ latest and greatest foray into the world of comics sees writers Matt Anderson and Vinnie Fiorello (P+P owner) taking shots at popular culture and the music industry. Perfect Teeth is the name of the vampire band, and not only does the group exist in the comics, beginning with introductory issue Perfect Teeth #0, but it exists in real life, too – sorta.

Fiorello, Stephen Egerton (Descendents, ALL) and Jon Snodgrass (Drag The River) met up and recorded a song “by” Perfect Teeth, which will be released later this month. Perfect Teeth #0 is a conjunction release between P+P and Viper Press, and the Peter Wonsowski-illustrated comic can be downloaded for free here.

The introductory issue also comes in a limited physical form, which can be purchased here. These are limited to 200 and at $3 each, are expected to move quickly. Fiorello and Anderson are available for interviews.
