This December, series creator Steve Niles is teaming up with newcomer artist Gyula Németh and letterer Nate Piekos for Criminal Macabre: The Big Bleed Out, the next chapter in the Cal McDonald saga.
This new four-part series begins when supernatural detective Cal McDonald, found wandering the streets as a disheveled vagrant, is ripped from his self-imposed retirement to resume his monster-killing career. But Cal is reluctant to return to the fray. What has the hard-bitten investigator so shaken? It’s a long story that begins with a beautiful woman who happens to be a vampire…and ends with a bang.
Speaking about the series, Niles said “I’ve been writing Cal McDonald since I was in my 20’s and to this day he is the most fun to write. I couldn’t be happier to see him come back with Gyula Nemeth doing the art. I think fans of Cal will be pleasantly surprised and hopefully a little horrified.
Criminal Macabre: The Big Bleed Out #1 (of 4) goes on sale December 11, 2019.
