Wait, does it have two tongues or one big tongue and a weird tongue-shaped lower lip or one tongue and it's vomiting a large kielbasa with a bit of mustard on it?

Read the first three issues of Space Riders by Alexis Ziritt and Fabian Rangel from Black Mask Studios and really enjoyed it. The art has this really cool psychedelic quality especially the coloring just insanely cool.  From what I've read about it online it's only a four issue miniseries.  The premise is basically a disgraced space captain gets a second chance to redeem himself. He flies around in his space ship shaped like a skull and is joined by his first mate who is an anthropomorphic baboon and a female robot.

I'm really enjoying Image Comics' Revival and it's quickly become one of my current favorite Image titles. As a huge fan of the horror genre I find it refreshingly imaginative and genuinely disturbing. The Jenny Frison cover artwork is gorgeous. Mike Norton does a great job with the interior artwork and Tim Seeley's character work and plot are interesting.  I would really like to see it picked up as a TV series.

Recently finished binge reading Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips' Fatale and really enjoy it. It starts out like a crime noir but has elements of horror including a vibe that's very Lovecraftian. There's a really intriguing femme fatale, an ominous cult, a good bit a disturbing gore and the ending was pretty satisfying. Plus the cover art is really cool.

I've been reading Crisis on Infinite Earths.  I'm about halfway through.  Isn't this supposed to be a good comic?

It's an important comic, but it's very much a mid-80s comic.
