Steve Niles Brings Criminal Macabre Back to Dark Horse This December


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.
