Before there were heroes, there were monsters. Or at least that's how the story of Marvel Comics goes, with the Jack Kirby-driven success of the publisher's monster comics leading to a superheroic renaissance in the early 1960s.
The Monsters Unleashed event, which launches with Monsters Unleashed #1 on January 18 2017, promises to bring back those monsters of primordial Marvel and pit them against the current crop of superheroes. To promote the series, Marvel has just unveiled some of the "Monster Versus Marvel Hero" variant covers that will be available for each issue. Each cover is by a standout artist, and each depicts a single Marvel hero facing off against a Marvel monster.
Yesterday Dark Horse Comics unveiled a short motion comic-style teaser for a new series by Mike Mignola, Chris Roberson, Paul Grist and Bill Crabtree titled The Visitor: How And Why He Stayed. Today the publisher officially announced the series as a five-issue look at with one of the most unexpected mysteries of the Hellboy world.
Dark Horse Comics and Stoller Family Estates Winery have teamed up to introduce Hellboy Reserve Pinot Noir, a wine that honors everyone's favorite surly but heroic demon, Hellboy. The red wine, a 2011 reserve, can be preordered now and becomes available on Halloween. It features a Hellboy label with Mike Mignola artwork.
What a week! I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to sit back and read some comics. The weekend is finally here, and the world can relax and rest once more --- but the comics industry has been busy too, you know, and the last seven days have seen a flurry of comics-based news and announcements fly past at high speed. ComicsAlliance has got your back, though: when it comes to comics, we never slow down, and so here’s a look back and just what’s been going on.
New comics, new stories, new events, new podcasts, new projects being made --- it’s all part of the ComicsAlliance Weekender!
Dark Horse has announced a new Hellboy original graphic novel to be released in the spring of 2017: Hellboy: Into the Silent Sea, co-written by Hellboy creator Mike Mignola, co-written and drawn by Gary Gianni, and colored by Dave Stewart.
But wait, you may be asking, didn't Hellboy die and go to Hell? Yes, and unlike so many other comic book heroes, he remains dead. But Hellboy's story was never very linear, and there are still adventures from his long life that we don't yet know about. This story in particular takes place after the events of the 2005 Hellboy story The Island.
Sir Edward Grey returns for another creepy Victorian adventure in Witchfinder: City of the Dead, kicking off the fourth miniseries starring the 18th Century paranormal investigator.
The series is a spinoff of Hellboy, in which a Sir Edward Grey, rendered immortal by a demon's curse, has long been an ally of the titular hero. City of the Dead is co-written by Mike Mignola and Chris Roberson, with art by Ben Stenbeck. Roberson and Stenbeck are making their debut on Witchfinder, as the previous series --- In the Service of Angels, Lost and Gone Forever, and The Mysteries of Unland --- have featured different creative teams, with Mignola, the character's creator, as the connective tissue.
Summer is well and truly upon us, and that means that you're probably thinking about taking a trip. The thing is, though, you don't want to just do the same things everyone else is doing, right? I mean, nothing ruins a vacation faster than having to deal with other people who also want to see the World's Largest Corndog.
So if you're looking for a good place to take a vacation, might I suggest flipping through Mike Mignola, Christopher Golden, Peter Bergting, and Michelle Madsen's Baltimore: Empty Graves #4? You'll get the next chapter of the supernatural mystery that they're telling, of course, but you'll also get a quirky list of offbeat vacation destinations, like "the cell in Padua where Pietro D'Abano was tortured to death by the Inquisition," or "the books in the forbidden library in Cairo"! And you can check out a preview right now!

Walt Simonson, Laura Martin and John Workman's Ragnarok is an epic in every sense of the word. It's the story of Thor --- the Norse god, not any other comic book characters of the same name that you might be thinking of when you hear the words "Walt Simonson" --- returning to life as a rotting but vengeance-driven warrior in a world that's already seen its apocalypse and forming an uneasy alliance with a dark elf assassin sent to finish him off for good.
If you're not sold already, you can read an exclusive preview right here, in which Thor's alliance with Regn gives way to an agreement that one of them is more than likely going to kill the other, assuming they both survive for the next 40 pages.
