Steve Niles’ Criminal Macabre returns with The Third Child

June 9th, 2014 by Marc Comments

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

Criminal Macabre: The Third Child #1 is on sale September 17.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
