Mike Mignola, Zach Howard, and Dave Stewart Collaborate for the Sequel to the Iconic Story The Crooked Man

Legendary Hellboy creator Mike Mignola, acclaimed artist Zach Howard, award-winning colorist Dave Stewart, and letterer Clem Robbins are collaborating on a sequel to the iconic Hellboy story The Crooked Man. In Hellboy & The B.P.R.D.: The Return of Effie Kolb, years after he banished the infamous backwoods demon known as the Crooked Man, Hellboy returns to Appalachia when a young psychic warns Tom Ferrell of looming danger. But the Crooked Man’s house is no longer empty, and threats both new and old simmer in the Virginia woods. 

Hellboy: The Crooked Man by Mignola and celebrated illustrator Richard Corben was originally published by Dark Horse Comics as a 3-issue mini-series in 2008 and is included in Hellboy: The Complete Short Stories Volume 1.

Dark Horse Comics will publish the debut issue of the thrilling, two-part Hellboy & The B.P.R.D.: The Return of Effie Kolb series on February 19, 2020.

Dark Horse Reveals Our Encounters With Evil

Ahead of its publication, Dark Horse Comics has released a preview of the original graphic novel Our Encounters With Evil: Adventures of Professor J.T. Meinhardt and His Assistant Mr. Knox. The highly anticipated book is the sequel to the acclaimed graphic novel Mr. Higgins Comes Home created by legendary Hellboy creator Mike Mignola and Warwick Johnson-Cadwell.

In this all new installment, Professor J.T. Meinhardt and Mr. Knox continue their pursuit of ne’er-do-well creatures of the night. Now, backed by the dauntless vampire hunter Ms. Mary Van Sloan, the heroes pursue vampires, werewolves, and other horrors that even they are hard-put to name or explain. The only thing that’s for certain? The strange truths these adventurers uncover are seldom what they seem.

Dark Horse will publish the hardcover graphic novel―created by Mike Mignola and Warwick Johnson-Cadwell, with story and art by Warwick Johnson-Cadwell, lettering by Clem Robins and a cover by Mike Mignola with Eisner Award-winning colorist Dave Stewart―in comic shops on Wednesday, November 13th and in bookstores on November 26, 2019.

The rain lashes the grassy dunes of Brody Island, and seagulls scream above the bay. A slender figure in a raincoat carries a large wicker basket, which looks like it might be full of melons… covered by a bloodstained scrap of the American flag.

This is the story of June Branch, a young woman trapped with four cunning criminals who have snatched her boyfriend for deranged reasons of their own. Now she must fight for her life with the help of an impossible 8th-century Viking axe that can pass through a man’s neck in a single swipe-and leave the severed head still conscious and capable of supernatural speech.
Each disembodied head has a malevolent story of its own to tell, and it isn’t long before June finds herself in a desperate struggle to hack through their lies and manipulations… racing to save the man she loves before time runs out.

Plus, in the premiere chapter of the backup story “Sea Dogs,” which sails across all the Hill House Comics titles!

Review: Spider-Man #1

Spider-Man #1

I went into reading Spider-Man #1 trying to know as little as possible. I’m glad I did as I came out of it not only surprised but immediately wanting to see what’s next.

Written by the father/son duo of J.J. Abrams and Henry Abrams, the comic is a “new” but familiar take on Spider-Man.

Not set in continuity, I think, the comic has shocking moments that’ll catch you off guard if you’re like me and avoiding spoilers as much as possible.

But, to give a review as to why this comic is so good, we have to go the spoiler route.

A father and son duo are telling a story about a father a son. In this version of Spider-Man, MJ has been murdered during a battle. Twelve years later and we find out Peter and MJ had a son, Ben. Ben lives with Aunt May as Peter is a bit of an absentee father. Ben also has the spirit of justice as his father and some of his father’s abilities. From there, the story is pretty clear.

What the Abrams do is explore a relationship they have. It’s unknown how much of their own life they’ve poured into this but the inclusion of Henry Abrams as a co-writer feels vital as it brings a sense of authenticity. This isn’t a story told from a father’s perspective but both father and son.

Yes, the comic has another fridging which gets old but it’s difficult to explore the aspect the comic seems to be doing without it.

The art Sara Pichelli is fantastic. The ink by Elisabetta D’Amico, the coloring of Dave Stewart, and lettering by Joe Caramagna all come together for a hell of a visual treat. There’s a slight shift in style as the comic jumps ahead which helps with the break. It also sets up an art style that feels rare in comics these day. There’s an almost water color aspect to it all. It just looks beautiful.

I figured the comic would be entertaining but this goes beyond that. This may be the surprise of the week.
