The upcoming year is going to be big for B.P.R.D. Dark Horse recently announced their renumbering initiative for the popular Hellboy spinoff, and longtime Hellboy and B.P.R.D. editor, and newly anointed Dark Horse editor-in-chief Scott Allie, has said that recent events in the series are leading toward what he simply, but ominously, described as "The End."

To give fans a glimpse of what's to come, the publisher has provided ComicsAlliance with preview art for five upcoming B.P.R.D. story arcs. Throughout the week we've shown you previews of upcoming B.P.R.D. work from Gabriel Bá, Fábio Moon, James Harren, Peter Snejbjerg, and Laurence Campbell, and we're finishing off the week with a preview of the upcoming two part miniseries Sledgehammer, including interior art by Jason Latour and covers for both issues by Hellboy and B.P.R.D. creator Mike Mignola.

From Dark Horse:

August, 1944: a man in a suit of iron armor drops from an American warplane onto a French battlefield where he attempts to fight his way through an army of Nazis and the massive war machine they keep protected in an armory.

Sledgehammer #1 is on sale 03/13/2013. You can check out the first six pages of issue one, plus the first two cover from Mignola, below.
