Steve Niles brings a new Criminal Macabre adventure, The Iron Spirit!

Dark Horse has made a ton of announcements at Emerald City Comicon this year, one of those has been a new adventure for Criminal Macabre fans, The Iron Spirit is a new story that will please current fans of the story and act as an introduction piece to suck in new readers as well. A haunted veteran leads Cal to a creepy base full of mad experiments conducted on unsuspecting soldiers.

It’s an odd tale of death and the undead and all the impacts around both sides, we’ve seen our hero in Criminal Macabre go through a slew of situations and this latest one will be an epic chance to give him a new tale.

The Book is a ways off, Criminal Macabre: The Iron Spirit is slated to hit shelves on September 12, 2012 and we should have a preview a few weeks prior to that to give a heads up on how this new tale pans out.
