Masters of the Universe Comes to Dark Horse with Revelation

Mattel and Dark Horse Comics have announced Masters of the Universe: Revelation, a four-issue miniseries. Starting in July 2021, the series will serve as a prequel to the upcoming Masters of the Universe: Revelation series from Netflix and Mattel Television premiering this year. 

The story arc for the new comics was conceived by the show’s executive producers Kevin Smith and Rob David, who also served as the creative director and a writer of DC Comics’ Masters of the Universe releases from 2012 – 2020, as well as show writer Tim Sheridan. Mindy Lee provides the art and color while Stjepan Sejic created the cover art for issue #1 with Dave Wilkins providing cover art for issues #2-#4. Mattel and Dark Horse will also release an issue #1 variant by Mike Mignola and Dave Stewart. Additional variant artists for subsequent issues include Bill Sienkiewicz, Walt Simonson with Laura Martin, and more.

In the comic book, following a vicious Orlax attack on his father King Randor, He-Man learns the creature is linked to the origin of the sword of power. To save Randor and put an end to the chaos, He-Man embarks on an epic journey that pits him against his longtime foes Skeletor and Evil-Lyn, and sees Teela take the reins of a powerful legacy. 

The first installment of four for the Masters of the Universe: Revelation comic is currently available for pre-order and will be released July 7, 2021. Additional comic books will be released on August 11, September 9, and October 13, 2021.

SDCC 2018: Dark Horse Celebrates the 25th Anniversary of Hellboy’s First Appearance at San Diego Comic-Con With 3 New Mignolaverse Titles

In 1993, legendary comic book creator Mike Mignola’s most famous creation, Hellboy, first appeared in a four page, black and white story in San Diego Comic-Con Comics #2, months ahead of his full issue comic book debut in Hellboy: Seed of Destruction. Co-published by Dark Horse Comics, this story introduced one of the most beloved comic book characters in history and launched what would become known as the Mignolaverse — the strange, shared universe of comic books and graphic novels, comprised of acclaimed titles including Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.Abe SapienB.P.R.D.Frankenstein UndergroundLobster JohnsonThe Visitor: How and Why He Stayed and Witchfinder.

25 years later, Mignola is once again returning as a Special Guest to San Diego Comic-Con International, where the convention will celebrate the 25th anniversary of that first 4-page story by including the historic story in their 2018 Souvenir Book. The story, which previously had been published with colors by acclaimed colorist Matt Hollingsworth, will now be colored by Eisner Award-winning colorist and longtime Mignola collaborator Dave Stewart and will appear alongside an all new interview with Mignola and Jed W. Keith. In addition, Mignola and Stewart have created an all new cover for the San Diego Comic-Con International Events Guide.

Ahead of the convention and the planned celebration of Mignola and his creation, Dark Horse Comics is announcing three new Mignolaverse comic books, which further expand and enrich the epic story that has been entertaining fans around the world for two and a half decades.

The three new titles, which Dark Horse Comics will publish in 2018, span the globe and showcase very different corners of the Mignolaverse — the occult cold war escalates in Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.: 1956; Lobster Johnson’s biggest foe, the Crimson Lotus, is featured in her first ever, eponymous mini-series; and the annual Hellboy Winter Special features festive and supernatural stories from Mike Mignola and Ben Stenbeck, Tonci Zonjic, Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá.

The three new titles are:

Crimson Lotus five-issue mini series

Mike Mignola (W), John Arcudi (W), Mindy Lee (A), Michelle Madsen (C), Tonci Zonjic (Cover)
Issue 1 on sale date: 11/21/2018
Before she became Lobster Johnson’s biggest foe, the Crimson Lotus was a young girl whose family was caught up in the Russo-Japanese war. Thirty years later, the Lotus exacts her revenge with terrifying international ramifications, and two spies must try to chase her through China before they become flies in her web.

Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.: 1956 five-issue mini series

Mike Mignola (W), Chris Roberson (W), Yishan Li (A), Mike Norton (A), Michael Avon Oeming (A), Dave Stewart (C), Dave Johnson (Cover)
Issue 1 on sale date: 11/28/2018
Pressure is mounting within the bureau to uncover the Soviets’ secret plans, but a suspicious cover-up leads one agent off the radar in search of answers. Meanwhile, demonic Soviet occult leader Varvara pushes her team to follow her own whims, and Hellboy is sent on the mission that would lead to his infamous misadventures in Mexico. But even more clandestine plots are at work—both inside the B.P.R.D. and out. Three different storylines are interwoven in this espionage saga.

Hellboy Winter Special 2018

Mike Mignola (W/Cover), Fábio Moon (W/A/variant cover), Gabriel Bá (W/A/Variant cover), Tonci Zonjic (W/A/C), Ben Stenbeck (A), Dave Stewart (C)
On sale date: 12/12/2018
Three wintery tales featuring a Mike Mignola and Ben Stenbeck team-up about a New Year’s Eve séance gone wrong when Hellboy visits a family’s English home, Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá revisit B.P.R.D.: Vampire with a new tie-in story, and Tonci Zonjic returns to write and draw Lobster Johnson.

Fans will be able to ask Mignola about the new titles —and anything else the audience wants to talk about regarding his career —  at the San Diego Comic-Con international Spotlight panel on Mike Mignola on Friday, July 20th at 2:30 PM PT in Room: 24ABC. Mignola will also be signing at the Dark Horse Comics booth (#2615) on Friday July 20th at 4:30 PM and exhibiting at Booth #4901, alongside artists Geof Darrow, Frank Cho and Steve Purcell from Wednesday through Saturday.

The new titles join an exciting Mignolaverse publishing lineup for the year, including the Hellboy Omnibus Collection, which creates the definitive reading experience for Hellboy fans and an ideal entry point for new readers by publishing Mignola’s award-winning Hellboy stories in chronological order for the first time ever.

Review: Bounty #5

30049

Romance. Crime. Vodka. Motorcycles. This one has it all! Surrounded by enemies, Nina and Georgie are running out of options. But these bounty-hunting sisters have never surrendered before, and they’re not about to start now. Their sworn enemy has a lot of trouble on his hands—karma always gets you in the end.

The story ends, as it begins in Bounty #5 written by Kurtis Wiebe. This issue reveals a lot of backstory and gives a detailed explanation on why this rag tag group changed their criminal ways. With how Wiebe leaves this issue I hope we’ll get more of this world, series, and Nina and Georgie.

While the colorful art style by Mindy Lee continues, in some way this issue breaks it up and changes things up a bit. At times Bounty #5 goes with a more terrestrial almost Blade Runner environment for the scenes that take place in the past. In contrast to this, the present is much more clean and military looking. Yet both share a clear sense of high octane action with solid work by Lee who keeps the series consistent and flowing with energy and excitement with the visuals.

Review: Bounty #3

30047

It’s time to explore everyone’s tragic backstory! But as Nina, Viv, and even Oscar spill their guts, Georgie is thinking about the bottom line. Now that their secret identities have leaked, it’s starting to look like they’ll never get paid.

Even on a good day, nothing seems to go right for Nina and Viv. A simple drop off turns into a firefight. Which almost in a cliche manner leads to an interesting chase/space fight panels. Through it writer Kurtis Wiebe makes you feel sympathy for the ex-criminals turned bounty hunters.

The firefight scenes by artist Mindy Lee are done with a great attention to color and displaying action. Even the interesting flashback is a great contrast from the present. It all manages to showcase Lee’s talent very well.

Review: Bounty #2

30046

Sisters Nina and Georgie are bounty hunters, wanted criminals, and flat broke. In their quest to finally get paid, they’ve taken on a dangerous job on a familiar planet. It’s a showdown between old enemies and new allies as the epic sci-fi adventure continues!

Humor, action, and an odd degree of retro-futurism are packed into Bounty #2. I love how somehow despite inter-planetary travel being possible, selfies are still a thing. It’s funny how despite chasing after a known criminal, they agree to take a selfie in the middle of the chase. It’s an entertaining detail that sets the series apart of the type of humor you’d expect from writer Kurtis Wiebe. Details like that adds to the series and helps us the readers tell these characters love their job and have fun as they go after criminals.

The art by Mindy Lee is solid and detailed. It manages to showcase some interesting details as the characters chase their bounty. Lee shows some great detail that clearly delineates a division between the city, the graffiti ridden slums and the cleaned, polished towers of those with at least some money. That sort of work helps flesh out the world.

Review: Bounty #1

30045

The Gadflies were the most wanted criminals in the galaxy—robbing corporations to redistribute wealth to the destitute. Now, with a bounty to match their reputation, the Gadflies are forced to abandon banditry for a career as bounty hunters . . . ’cause if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em—then rob ’em blind!

Rat Queens creator Kurtis Wiebe joins forces with pop-comic sensation Mindy Lee to present a femme fatale sci-fi caper of epic proportions!

Wiebe has made something with Bounty that fans of Cowboy Bebop should pickup. While it keeps the action and humor of the acclaimed anime, it is much more colorful in nature. The story is lighthearted, fun, and quick paced. If you like high-energy, humorous sci-fi you shouldn’t miss this.

The cartoon influenced, colorful art is visually eye-catching.  I wouldn’t be surprised to see a cartoon adaption happen, given both the artwork and story. The action scenes are polished and have a great flow between the panels.  If this issue is just a hint at things to come, I’m not sure I can wait for more.

BountyDark Horse Comics has announced that Rat Queens Eisner Award-nominated writer Kurtis Wiebe is bringing his latest creator-owned series to readers this summer with the arrival of Bounty #1.

This ongoing series sees Wiebe join forces with pop-comic sensation Mindy Lee to present a femme-fatale sci-fi caper of epic proportions!

Doing so earned them a reputation as the roughest outlaws in the universe—with a bounty to match! Now, with the law closing in on them, the Gadflies are forced to abandon their bandit personas in favor of a new career as bounty hunters . . . ’cause if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em—then rob ’em for all they’re worth!

It’s Rat Queens meets Firefly!

Bounty #1 debuts on July 6 and retails for $3.99.
