    Of course, I have no idea when the next time will be that Steve will grace us with another Cal McDonald mystery, but I can't wait. But until then, I will definitely be gaining some grey hairs in anticipation. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Lonmonster Dec 19, 2013

    The artwork continues to be a franticly penciled representation of the events in Niles story, and it works remarkably well considering the suspense and horror elements of the book. Composition-wise, Mitten has a great knack for visual storytelling, and makes use of all the panel space he lays out for himself. He has a very distinctive style of art that has come to be recognizable, with his scratchy lines and airy depictions of characters and settings. Michelle Madsens colours are skillfully rendered onto the pages using dark tones to evoke the mood of the narrative. Her contributions to Hemlocks occultist activities make for some of the best panels in the entire series. Justin Ericksons consistently fantastic covers should also be commended. He definitely saved the best for last. Read Full Review

    All in all, Criminal Macabre: Eyes of Frankenstein was a great series that leaves you wanting more. Things don't wrap up in a tidy little package, so I'm looking forward to the next mini so I can find out just what the hell happened. Read Full Review

    The latest installment in Criminal Macabre brought a surprisingly swift resolution to an overall terrific story arc. However, as with most arcs in this series, the ending brought a lot more questions than it did answers. The storytelling throughout the Eyes of Frankenstein mini-series was fantastic with some particularly deep dialogue. While much of this deeper introspection was absent from EoF #4, the story still explored some interesting new territory and laid the groundwork for future arcs. Read Full Review
