Three Free Comics from Steve Niles

I adore comic book writer Steve Niles. Criminal Macabre is one of my top three favorite comics. (reviews of C.M.) If you love horror comics then this is a man you need to read. He has three gruesome horror comics for free on his website. I have included the blurbs and links for you to check out. These are reminiscent of the old school Tales from the Crypt comics, only a little more graphic. My favorite is Edge of Doom. A collection of 5 separate short stories that are tied together in a unusual way. 

I give all three comics 5 "superhero horror" Sheep

Best known for works such as 30 Days of Night, Criminal Macabre, Simon Dark, Mystery Society and Batman: Gotham County Line, he is credited among other contemporary writers as bringing horror comics back to prominence.

Niles is currently working for four of the top American comic publishers - IDW, DC, Image and Dark Horse. Everyone's favorite monster hunter Cal McDonald continues in theCriminal Macabre series from Dark Horse, as well as in stories currently being published by Steve's own Bloody Pulp Books.

Edge of Doom 
Art by Kelley Jones
Discover the true meaning of terror as fright-masters Steve Niles and Kelley Jones bring you five frightening tales of stark raving horror! In one tale we watch a very sad and lonely man reaching the end of his rope, only to discover he's in way deeper than he ever imagined. It seems there's an army of little demons in his garden and he's their next sacrifice! Or another, of a brave space explorer left to roam a strange planet all alone as a result of an engine malfunction, with his only companion, a weather droid. And yet another, as we witness a husband & wife who thought the toughest challenge before them was their impending divorce, until a terrible car 'accident' makes them unwitting subjects in a bizarre scientific experiment.
