    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Oct 15, 2014

    While this issue is a bad place for new readers to start, long time readers are likely shitting their pants. This issue was over far too quickly for my liking and I only wanted to read more because of it. Even a casual Cal McDonald fan will love every page of this issue. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Hazel Hay Oct 20, 2014

    Issue 2 sees the residents of L.A. turn on each other. Its a dark, gloomy, bloody massacre. Cal doesnt know how to stop it all but knows that a war between human and monster is looming. Hemlock returns to take down Cal and his band of the undead. Its a bloody, gore-filled issue, one in which we see Cal did up his fathers body for advice. Brilliant stuff. Steve Niles is the master of true, proper horror and there are a handful of truly horrific scenes in this comic that completely satisfy the ghoul in us. As Cal says, Were all potentially monsters. I think were all about to find out who is and who isnt. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Oct 14, 2014

    Criminal Macabre: The Third Child #2 definitely takes things to new heights. Between Cal's search for inner acceptance, and Hemlock's twisted schemes this issue takes a very intense and emotional direction, with every moment being enthralling. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Bree Ogden Oct 15, 2014

    In the end, LA is fucked. The vampires, monsters, ghouls, werewolves, etc., are irate and up to no good. Cal's past is catching up with him and Mo can no longer come to his rescue. Hemlock and the demon babies are destroying humanity and the Third Child is coming. This is a shit storm of grand proportions and we have two issues left to resolve it. My heart aches for Cal and my anxiety for his wellbeing (along with Mo and Co.) is palpable. Next month's issue cannot come soon enough. Read Full Review
