Day 18 of October Horror Month: CRIMINAL MACABRE by Steve Niles

I think Criminal Macabre is brilliant. Not so much the comic, which is forced as the medium is to rely upon the artist, but the novels by Steve Niles featuring Cal McDonald, who investigates and responds to horror events. Niles clearly knows his character here, writing stories that are vulgar, dark, funny and violent. The power of the story presented by Niles isn’t altogether that you like Cal McDonald, although I do, but rather, that he is faced with unspeakably horrible things, and you are with him for the spooky ride.
