Cal McDonald Returns in ‘Criminal Macabre: Spirit of the Demon’

by Rob Caprilozzi

A master of horror comics is set to return with one of his favorite creations.

Dark Horse Comics has announced that they will be teaming up with Steve Niles 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).

“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.”

Cal McDonald made his first appearance in the comic Daughters of Fly In My Eye #1, which was published by Eclipse in January, 1990. The character, which was created by Niles, is a paranormal detective who often finds himself in grave danger as he battles demons, zombies and hordes of undead.

Criminal Macabre: Spirit of the Demon hardcover will be in comic shops July 6, 2022. Stay tuned to Horror News Network for more on Criminal Macabre.
