While Mike Mignola may have officially put an end to the adventures of Hellboy, the prolific creator has established a living, breathing universe over the past twenty-plus years and its one that shows no signs of slowing down. ComicsAlliance has the exclusive reveal of June's crop of Mignolaverse titles, including The Visitor: How and Why He Stayed and a huge prose collection featuring stories by Chelsea Cain, Delilah Dawson and Chris Roberson.
Joe Golem: Occult Detective
Joe Golem is an illustrated novel from Christopher Golden and Hellboy creator Mike Mignola, set in a world full of monsters where a good chunk of Manhattan sank into the sea in 1925, giving rise to a "Drowning City" full of waterlogged skyscrapers and unknown horrors.
Now, Mignola and Golden are bringing their pulpy, monstrous detective story to comics. Dark Horse announced this week that Mignola and Golden will be cowriting Joe Golem: Occult Detective, a five-issue miniseries with art and color by Patric Reynolds and Dave Stewart, set in the mid-'60s, ten years before the events of the novel.
