Mayhem in the streets!

The world is rioting and everyone has turned to their darker sides. In all this mayhem, Cal seeks help from those long gone, but can he and the few outcasts still on his side save a world that has always shunned them?

* From the writer of Breath of Bones and 30 Days of Night!

The love between a father and son…nothing like it. Cal gets good advice from his dad after digging him up. He also makes a confession to longtime friend Mo and new friend Frank about his purpose. There is an imbalance between light and darkness and it is spilling into their world. They are going to need an army to help and the ghouls have switched sides. But luckily Frank has some monster friends in the backyard so things might be looking up.
This is issue #3 of a 4 part story. Criminal Macabre is one of the best horror/humor urban fantasy comics out there. The Third Child is no exception. The artwork is on point for the series with graphic horror scenes and minimal detail drawing that still manages to express the proverbial thousand words. And I’ve always loved the “f*** you” Cal McDonald dry wit.

I absolutely love this series and The Third Child storyline. Looking forward to how this plays out.
