Mignola, Roberson, Mitten, Stewart, and Campbell Team Up for Rise of the Black Flame
This September, legendary Hellboy creator Mike Mignola, iZombie co-creator Chris Roberson, Criminal Macabre and 30 Days of Night artist Christopher Mitten, award winning colorist Dave Stewart and cover artist Laurence Campbell will present Rise of the Black Flame. This five issue miniseries from Dark Horse Comics will present a dark horror story about an ancient, evil power. In Rise of the Black Flame, young girls are going missing from the cities of Siam, and the trail leads to the jungle hideout of a bloodthirsty cult– the Cult of the Black Flame.
In Rise of the Black Flame, it’s revealed that before there was a man called the Black Flame, there was an ancient cult hidden deep in the jungles of Southeast Asia known by that name. The creators plumb the depths of cruelty and ruthlessness that groups of people are capable of reaching, and explore how this cult which reaches back to prehistoric times is connected to the most dangerous villain in the history of the Hellboy book.
In addition to Rise of the Black Flame, Roberson and Mignola will be co-writing Hellboy & The BPRD: 1954 and Witchfinder: City of the Dead. Rise of the Black Flame will mark the Mignolaverse debut of artist Christopher Mitten.
Rise of the Black Flame issue 1 goes on sale from Dark Horse Comics on September 7.
