SDCC 22: Dark Horse announces Criminal Macabre/Count Crowley team-up

This Halloween there’s gonna be a problem for the things that go bump in the night. That’s because Cal McDonald and Jerri Bartman Are teaming up.

Shotguns and sorcery

This one promises to be a barn-burner. And, as a meeting between two supernatural (sorta) heroes go, it’s a unique one too. Both characters involved aren’t exactly big names, but both have been around for a while.

Steve Niles’ Cal McDonald and David Dastmalchian’s Jerri Bartman are teaming up to take down a pesky creep in Criminal Macabre/Count Crowley: From The Pit They Came. And they’re set to do it at a… comic con?

What could be more dicey than a monster hunter with a self-destructive streak? TWO monster hunters with self-destructive streaks! Plop them both into the weirdly wonderful world of fan conventions as they seek to capture a rampaging creature from deep beneath the earth, and the good times will really get rolling! 

Storied creature catcher, Cal McDonald joins forces (kind of) with novice beast buster Jerri Bartman in the Criminal Macabre/Count Crowley: From The Pit They Came!

“Working with David and Lukas has been a thrill and way too much fun,” said Steve Niles. “Everything came together so smoothly by the time we were finished I wanted to keep going. I hope people enjoy the crossover half as much as I enjoyed working on it.” 

“I remember discovering Criminal Macabre in Graham Crackers comics in Chicago and immediately knowing I’d found a new favorite title,” added David Dastmalchian on the collaboration. “Steve Niles has inspired and entertained me for many years and the chance to collaborate with him on a story that unites our flawed heroes has been a highlight in my writing journey.”
