RBmedia has announced that its GraphicAudio brand is releasing three original Hellboy Universe audiobooks written by bestselling author Christopher Golden. The first audiobook in the series will be released in July.
Written exclusively for GraphicAudio and produced with a full cast of actors, sound effects, and cinematic music, this audio-first series provides an immersive story set in the Hellboy Universe created by legendary cartoonist Mike Mignola. Each audiobook will be accompanied by cover artwork by Mignola and award-winning colorist Dave Stewart. The first of the audio projects, titled Hellboy: A Plague Of Wasps, continues the story from the fan favorite Hellboy in Love comic books.
The first three original Hellboy audiobooks include:
- Hellboy: A Plague of Wasps. Things turn strange and dangerous when Hellboy accompanies his girlfriend, Anastasia Bransfield, on a trip to Brazil. They venture into the rainforest to stop an evil force from spreading. This first audiobook in the series will be available on July 31, 2023 wherever audiobooks are sold.
- Lobster Johnson: The Proteus Club. Set in 1933, reporter Cynthia Tynan finds herself drawn into the mystery surrounding the disappearance of several prominent New Yorkers and seeks the aid of Hellboy’s childhood hero the Lobster. They must confront German spies, religious lunatics, and monstrously transformed people who have been subjected to hideous experimentation. The Lobster Johnson audiobook will debut in October.
- Hellboy and the BPRD: The Goddess of Manhattan. Hellboy, Liz Sherman, and Abe Sapien are drawn into a bizarre case linked both to Hellboy’s adventure with Anastasia in Brazil and to Lobster Johnson. Co-authored by Young Hellboy writer Thomas E. Sniegoski, the third audiobook in the series will be released in November.
