I’m excited about the team up of Steve Niles with Scott Morse. Those two will do some damage. Morse has a very loopy, energetic style and just doesn’t quit. The new Criminal Macabre book was announced at Emerald City Comicon in Seattle. Press Release follows:
STEVE NILES’S CRIMINAL MACABRE RETURNS
WITH IRON SPIRIT GRAPHIC NOVEL!
APRIL 2, SEATTLE, WA–Reported from Emerald City Comicon, Steve Niles (30 Days of Night) will take his occult detective into a new hardcover collector’s format with Eisner winner Scott Morse of Pixar and TR!CKSTER fame.
Brimming with terror, Criminal Macabre: The Iron Spirit is a perfect introduction for new readers. A haunted veteran leads monster hunter Cal McDonald to a creepy subterranean military base where mad-science experiments were conducted on US soldiers.
“Iron Spirit combines all of my favorite things. I wrote it as prose and handed it to Scott Morse and now Dark Horse is publishing it. I think readers will be surprised at this oddly touching story about death and undeath and the responsibilities that come with both,” said Steve Niles.
Praise for Criminal Macabre:
“Steve Niles has beaten up his main man, broken him down and now stands on the precipice of reinventing him with a conflict on the horizon that portends to be nothing short of epic.”—Newsarama
Criminal Macabre: The Iron Spirit is on sale September 12, 2012!
