Press Release

Steve Niles (Breath of Bones, 30 Days of Night) returns to his old haunt with a brand-new four-part miniseries: Criminal Macabre: The Third Child!

The Third Child, which directly follows Criminal Macabre: The Eyes of Frankenstein, will take readers into a dark place in a tale that only Steve Niles could tell, through Christopher Mitten’s fantastic artwork.

Cal’s changed . . . and maybe not for the better. Locked away and drowning himself with booze and aspirin, Cal feels the evil consuming him. Will he be able to withstand its pull or will he become the monster war’s greatest weapon of destruction?

Praise for Steve Niles’s Criminal Macabre:

“Niles’ writing is both light and gritty when the story calls for it, and strikes a perfect balance for a horror story of this nature.”—Bloody Disgusting

“Honestly, I don’t think Steve Niles has it in him to write a bad issue of Criminal Macabre.”—Comics Bulletin

“There were some really exciting developments in the latest installment of Criminal Macabre; too many to discuss in one place, and we want to avoid spoilers! You should be reading this one.”—All-Comic

“This is a very well thought out and executed plot and for fans of monsters, ghouls, demons and all things magical and mystical should give this miniseries a try.”—Unleash the Fanboy
