Dark Horse To Publish Falconspeare Created by Mike Mignola and Warwick Johnson-Cadwell
This fall, Dark Horse Comics will publish Falconspeare, an original graphic novel featuring Mike Mignola and Warwick Johnson-Cadwell’s characters Professor J.T. Meinhardt, Mr. Knox, and Ms. Mary Van Sloan. This eerie Victorian-style mystery delivers horror, humor, and the kind of off-kilter, charming twists that fans have come to expect. Monster hunters extraordinaire Professor Meinhardt, Mr. Knox, and Ms. Van Sloan have teamed up to slay spooks and investigate the uncanny before, but now they’ll tackle a question that’s haunted them for years: What happened to their friend and vampire slayer extraordinaire, James Falconspeare?
Falconspeare is written and drawn by acclaimed artist Warwick Johnson-Cadwell, with lettering by Clem Robins and a cover by Mignola and Eisner Award-winning colorist Dave Stewart.
Like the previous graphic novels, Falconspeare features the signature loose, expressive style of cartoonist Warwick Johnson-Cadwell in a standalone story that builds on the characters’ previous adventures. It is set outside both the Hellboy Universe and the Outerverse. Falconspeare will be on sale from Dark Horse Books in comic shops on September 29, 2021 and in bookstores on October 12, 2021.
