Sign of the Twisted Tooth. The Sign of the Twisted Tooth appeared in a number of stories in Fun and Fiction in 1912, beginning with “The Red Needle” (Fun and Fiction, Jan. 20, 1912).

The Sign of the Twisted Tooth are Killer Vigilantes. They are a mysterious secret society of vigilantes whose modus operandi is to leave evildoers like corrupt mill owners a note telling them that they must revise their wicked ways Or Else. Each target gets three warnings, the first with three twisted fangs, the second with two twisted fangs, and the third with one. If the targets do not do as the note says, they are killed.
