My Favorite Monster: Go Big Or Go Home With The Ogdru Jahad [Fantasy Week]

ogrdu-jahad-feat

When thinking about favorite monsters, I wanted to go to one of the biggest, most uncontrollable and terrifying concepts that have ever hit the comics page. Dinosaurs and demons are all well and good, but they offer a threat that doesn’t dig deep beneath the skin. What really frightens me is unknown, unseen terror that exists in fugue; horrors like the Ogdru Jahad, creatures we've seen only briefly in Mike Mignola-created books including Hellboy and B.P.R.D..

The Black Flame Is Tearing Up New York In ‘BPRD: Hell On Earth’ #138

BPRD00

It probably shouldn't come as a surprise given the kind of problems that they usually deal with, but as the BPRD barrels towards the conclusion of John Arcudi's eleven-year run on the title --- coming to an end in a mere nine issues --- Dark Horse's favorite paranormal investigators are having a pretty rough time. The Black Flame, the latest incarnation of an ancient evil, is tearing through New York City, and he's got Liz Sherman and Johann Kraus on the ropes.

Or, in Johann's case, at the bottom of the Hudson River, which is not really where you want to be if you're a gaseous spirit in a robot body, and exactly where we pick up in the pages of BPRD: Hell on Earth #138. Check out a preview below to find out if, like so many problems in the Hellboy universe, this is also one that can be solved by punching!

Gallery: Celebrating The Art of Mike Mignola

feature

Today is Mike Mignola’s 55th birthday, and that’s the perfect excuse to look back at a comic and illustration career that spans back to the 1980s.

There’s a reason Mignola’s art has not only captivated comic readers for years, but also attracted the attention of Hollywood, where his designs and aesthetics have been applied to both animation and live action. Mignola’s style is deceptively simple, but there is a beautiful elegance in that simplicity, even when manifests in the ugliness of some demon or nightmare creature. There is a mastery in every line and scratch he puts on a skull or statue or monster.

Hellboy00

‘Hellboy And The B.P.R.D.: 1952′ Takes Hellboy On An Awesome First Mission [Review]

Hellboy and the BPRD: 1952 #1

Hey, have you folks heard about this Hellboy character? It's okay if you haven't -- there's a big #1 on the cover of this comic I just read, so I assume he's pretty new. Trust me, though, he's a character you're going to want to watch, because despite a name that seems pretty lousy the first time you hear it, this is pretty good stuff.

Seriously, though, as much as I love Hellboy and the world of the BPRD (Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense), I'll admit that I haven't been keeping up with the ongoing adventures over the past few years. I'm sure they're good -- I'm sure they're great, because it's rare that Hellboy isn't, and Hellboy In Hell is viewed very favorably here at ComicsAlliance -- but it's one of those situations where I've fallen behind and it's at the point where there's so much I've missed that it's hard to get back into it.

And that's exactly why I was looking forward to Hellboy and the BPRD: 1952. On sale now, it tells the story of Hellboy's first assignment with the BPRD, which makes it the perfect jumping-on (or in my case, jumping-back-in) point, and not only is it ridiculously good, but it feels fresh and new in a way that's almost impossible for a 20 year-old franchise to pull off.
