Mike Mignola and Adam Hughes Reunite for Hellboy & the B.P.R.D.: The Seven Wives Club

This December, the Eisner Award-winning creative team of Hellboy: Krampusnacht is reuniting for an all-new one-shot, Hellboy & the B.P.R.D.: The Seven Wives Club. Written by legendary Hellboy creator Mike Mignola and illustrated by acclaimed artist Adam Hughes, this ghostly yarn features Hellboy coming to the aid of a young girl whose ghost hunt in Savannah, GA goes terribly wrong. Things go from bad to worse, as they often do, when a visit to an abandoned medical school reveals sinister layers to a grisly long-ago murder. 

Adam Hughes will provide both the main cover and a variant cover, and Mike Mignola will also provide a variant cover. Dark Horse Comics will publish Hellboy & the B.P.R.D.: The Seven Wives Club one-shot on December 11, 2019.

Mike Mignola, Chris Roberson, Christopher Mitten, and Michelle Madsen Explore Jack the Ripper in Witchfinder: Reign of Darkness

This winter, legendary Hellboy creator Mike Mignola, iZombie co-creator Chris Roberson, acclaimed artist Christopher Mitten and colorist Michelle Madsen will unleash Witchfinder: Reign of Darkness. In this all-new, five-part miniseries from Dark Horse Comics, Sir Edward Grey, occult adviser to the queen, takes on London’s most famous serial killer: Jack the Ripper. 

In Witchfinder: Reign of Darkness, Sir Edward Grey is the only one who thinks Jack the Ripper’s murders have an occult purpose. When Scotland Yard turns its back on him, Grey finds an ally in American occult adventurer Sara Jewell. But the forces aligned against their investigation are more powerful than either one of them imagines.

Witchfinder: Reign of Darkness will debut on November 27, 2019.

Joe Golem is dead. Or is he? Simon Church is fading fast in the city above and Molly is held captive by Dr. Cocteau’s gas-men below, but something stirs in the tunnels. How much of the golem is still in the man, or the man in the golem? And can either be enough to stop Dr. Cocteau once he has the artifact he seeks?

Mike Mignola’s Cover for Sea of Stars is Revealed!

Image Comics has revealed a special Mike Mignola cover for the forthcoming Sea of Stars by Jason Aaron, Dennis Hallum, Stephen Green, and Rico Renzi, an ongoing series launching this July.

When recently widowed Gil gets a long-haul gig across the universe, he figures it’s safe enough to bring his young son Kadyn along for the ride—that is, until their “big rig” gets bitten in half by a gigantic Space Leviathan! Sea of Stars follows Gil, now separated from his son—with a breached suit that’s venting oxygen at an alarming rate—as he struggles to defy the odds and stay alive long enough to rescue Kadyn. But meanwhile, Kadyn seems to be getting all the help he needs from a talking Space Monkey riding a Space Dolphin… or maybe it’s the strange powers he’s suddenly manifesting…?

Sea of Stars is a brand-new science fiction series with all the scope and heart of the The Neverending Story crossed with the imaginative weirdness of Miyazaki and promises an intense, galaxy-spanning adventure perfect for fans of Jeff Lemire and Dustin Nguyen’s Descender.

Sea of Stars #1 Cover A by Green (Diamond Code MAY190023) and Sea of Stars #1 Cover B by Mignola (Diamond Code MAY190024) will be available on Wednesday, July 3. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is this Monday, June 10.

Mike Mignola’s Mr. Higgins Comes Home Gets a Sequel with Artist Warwick Johnson-Cadwell

This fall, Dark Horse Comics will publish the original graphic novel Our Encounters with Evil: Adventures of Professor J.T. Meinhardt and His Assistant Mr. Knox, the sequel to the acclaimed graphic novel Mr. Higgins Comes Home created by legendary Hellboy creator Mike Mignola and Warwick Johnson-Cadwell. In this 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 and bookstores in October, ahead of Halloween. 

Like Mr. Higgins Comes Home, the new graphic novel is set outside the Hellboy Universe and features the detailed and stylized art of cartoonist Warwick Johnson-Cadwell.

You can find the hardcover graphic novel in comic shops on October 9 and in bookstores on October 22. This October, fans can grab some garlic and silver bullets, and settle in for an endearingly terrifying tale, chock full of the occult and adventure.
