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.
This week, Dark Horse announced the plans for the next year of Hellboy and BPRD stories, and while there's something that I think we all expected, there's also one pretty big surprise mixed in there, too.
In case you haven't noticed from the fact that all your Twitter friends have changed their display names to delightfully sub-Cryptkeeper puns, it is finally October! And that, my fiends, means that it's finally time for some spoooooky announcements about upcoming projects, and Dark Horse is getting the jump on everyone else by touting a brand-new comic that won't be out until 2015.
There's a reason they're announcing it now, though: It's a brand new comic about Frankenstein's Monster written by Mike Mignola, and that's kind of a big deal. Along with artist Ben Stenbeck, who worked with Mignola previously on Baltimore, the series will be called Frankenstein Underground, and will be set in the same universe as Hellboy and BPRD.
On sale now is Baltimore: The Plague Ships, the first volume of a new graphic novel series by Mike Mignola, creator of Hellboy, one of the greatest comic book fantasy/adventure heros ever. Co-written with novelist Christopher Golden (Bloodstained Oz) and illustrated by Ben Stenbeck, Baltimore chronicles the dark travels of Lord Henry Baltimore, a soldier of World War I whose obsessive mission is to wipe out the monster whose plague has transformed much of Europe's population into horrible vampires...
The First World War was often referred to, during the time of the war and its immediate aftermath, as "The Great War." Obviously it didn't take on the title of World War I until there was also a World War II...
Mike Richardson, tongue in cheek, delivers a grisly, hilarious tale that rivals The Mask with its pop-culture references and blatant absurdity. Straw and Whip are buddies who have somehow managed to live through a plague that's left the world with seven billion brain-hungry zombies in its wake
