A Cal McDonald Mystery: Savage Membrane - 1st printing. Written by Steve Niles. Art by Ashley Wood. In the tradition of the hard-boiled fiction of Hammett and Chandler, Savage Membrane takes readers on a bizarre trip through an America populated by monsters, freaks, and ghouls. Cal McDonald has a special talent for spotting and seeking out what most of us will never see. In the dark corners of the everyday world, strange beings walk among us. After years of cases, from vampires to reanimated corpses, Cal finds himself in the middle of the strangest adventure of his life: People are dropping dead all over Washington DC, and the cause is a mystery. The bodies are unmarked, yet all brain matter is missing from their skulls. Written by Steve Niles, whose past works include Spawn: The Dark Ages, numerous Clive Barker comic adaptations, and the upcoming film, Spawn 2 from Sony Pictures. Illustrated by award winning artist Ashley Wood of PopBot and X-Men.
