Steve Niles introduces me to Cal McDonald, a pill-popping drunk who has a talent for killer monsters. Unfortunately, this character type isn't a new idea and isn't done extremely well here. In almost 400 pages we never see much how his drinking and drugs actually effect his life other than people mentioning it. There are some interesting ideas but the biggest drawback for me here was the art. Ben Templesmith's art at times is impossible to discern what is happening on panel. Its jarring. Then the art chores jump to Kelley Jones and you get completely different takes on the characters so at times you're not sure who/what is who/what. Its not a bad book, but its art does make it not recommendable for me.

I loved it! All the Cal McDonald favorites in one. Just the right amount of horror with Cal's hilarious drug-induced attitude.
