To me, Steve Niles’ (“30 DAYS OF NIGHT”) newest monthly from publisher IDW, “DOC MACABRE”, reminds me of “DEXTER’S LABORATORY” with a huge horror twist mixed in. Whatever it is, it works, and the series is one of my new favorites in the horror/weird science/reanimated dead/sci-fi sub-genre…if that is a sub-genre… In any event you can check out the 6 page preview of the second issue that drops on January 5th if you make the jump. Read on for the skinny!
“Back at his homebase, the good Doctor asks his butler/lab assistant robot, Llyod, to help him build an Ecto-Refractor Suit and get his latest invention, the Ecto-Fusion Coil, back up and running to summon back the ghost that attacked him last issue! But he soon finds out that the apparition is a scam and sends Lloyd on a mission which means the robot must venture outside of the headquarters… for the first time ever!”
