Praise for Steve Niles:

A top tier monster book with a heavy, near-perfect ending.”– (Criminal Macabre/Count Crowley: From the Pit They Came)

With a tight turn of phrase and tongue often in cheek (though sometimes ripped out in a nasty and bloody way) Niles clearly is having as much as we are.”–Tripwire Magazine (Criminal Macabre: The Complete Cal McDonald Stories)

If it’s been too long since a horror comic raised your gooseflesh or bestowed a case of jimjams, you owe yourself a look at A Town Called Terror #1.”–Comics Bookcase
