‘CRIMINAL MACABRE’ IS BACK AND BLOODIER THAN EVER
Dark Horse Comics and Steve Niles are teaming up again for more Criminal Macabre! Criminal Macabre: Spirit of the Demon is an all new original Cal McDonald story told as a self-contained hardcover graphic novel illustrated by Syzmon Kudranski (Spawn, The Punisher).
Supernatural detective Cal McDonald, is ripped again from his self-imposed retirement to resume his monster-killing career after hunting down a serial-killing priest with a blood-draining knife on a trail leading him directly to the gates of Hell!
“For this graphic novel I’ve taken a slightly, more serious approach to Cal McDonald,” Steve Niles says about Spirit of the Demon. “It’s a much moodier piece and the art by Szymon is dark. It’s about falling into Hell so it fits well.”
Criminal Macabre: Spirit of the Demon hardcover will be in comic shops July 6, 2022. It is available for pre-order on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and at your local comic shop and bookstore. Criminal Macabre: Spirit of the Demon will retail for $19.99 and will contain an introduction from horror icon John Carpenter!
