I realize that it's something I should've been reading all along, but it was only a couple of weeks ago that I finally sat down and caught up with Hellboy In Hell, and to the surprise of absolutely nobody, it's great. If you're similarly behind, the book follows Hellboy after his death preventing the battle of Armageddon and his descent into Hell, where he has to struggle with a destiny that would see him sat upon the throne of Lucifer and ruling over the armies of the damned. So, you know, the usual.

It seems like I have pretty good timing, too, because in a few weeks, the book returns as Mike Mignola and Dave Stewart bring us the second arc of Hellboy's posthumous adventures, "The Hounds of Pluto." Check out a preview below!





And here's the official solicitation text:

Writer: Mike Mignola
Artist: Mike Mignola
Colorist: Dave Stewart
Cover Artist: Mike Mignola
“The Hounds of Pluto” Part 1 of 2.
A sickness eats away at Hellboy. Though he’s dead, he risks losing himself and becoming one of the hollow phantoms that haunt Hell. A team of doctors promise a cure, but they need something from him first . . .


Demon doctors and hounds? That is not exactly what you would call a recipe for a good time, unless, of course, you're the reader getting a new comic written and drawn by Mike Mignola with Dave Stewart on colors. If that's the case, it sounds awesome.

Hellboy In Hell #7 will be on sale on August 26, with a cover price of $2.99.
