Dark Horse Comics and IDW Publishing have teamed up for a once-in-a-lifetime crossover between the critically acclaimed Criminal Macabre and 30 Days of Night. Steve Niles’s greatest characters come together in a final showdown, with a thrilling script by Steve Niles and artwork by Christopher Mitten.
Cal McDonald only wanted a beer, but what he got was a jaded federal agent and a story about vampires up in Barrow, Alaska. There’s a new vamp in LA, and he’s hell bent on escalating his attacks. When Mo’Lock’s sometimes ghoul-friend is murdered, Cal’s on the hunt – for Eben—the longtime protagonist/antagonist of 30 Days of Night.
Criminal Macabre: Final Night — The 30 Days of Night Crossover #1 (of 4) goes on sale December 12, 2012.
Praise for Steve Niles:
“Not only is Niles’ dialogue and pacing the best it has ever been, but Mitten’s art is absolutely paradisiacal by being horrific, high-brow, or low-brow whenever the situation demands it. This is a collaboration seemingly blessed by the comic book gods.” — Comics Bulletin
“Fans of the horror genre really can’t go wrong with [30 Days of Night].” — About.com
