Mike Mignola chats with Douglas Wolk at Playboy about Hellboy and reveals a fundamental truth about artists—they write what they like to draw. There’s a fairly radical change in style for Hellboy in Hell. Well, there’s two things there. I hadn’t been drawing the book for a long time, and I changed the location radically. […]
Novelist Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl) seems to be the headliner in the gala 200th issues of Dark Horse Presents. This groundbreaking anthology has introduced a ton of great comics to the world—a couple of little comics called Sin City and Concrete— and it was also the very first Dark Horse publication. To celebrate, the 200th issue has a stellar line up and a HELLBOY cover by Gabriel Bá, an APE-X variant cover by THE GOON creator Eric Powell and more including the US publication of a comic Flynn and Dave Gibbons originally commissioned for the Guardian in the UK.
By Matthew Jent Hellboy and the BPRD #1 Writers: Mike Mignola & John Arcudi Artist: Alex Maleev Colorist: Dave Stewart Cover Artist: Alex Maleev Genre: Horror, Fantasy, Action/Adventure Publisher: Dark Horse Comics “You’re taking Hellboy with you.” In the mid-1990s I was in high school and looking for rebellion. Something to get pretentious about. […]
It seems we’re not the only ones obsessed with Halloween—Mike Mignola and Dark Hose have been running a 13 Days of Hellboy festival, celebrating all kinds of artwork and story reveals in the Hellboy.
And we’re officially crossing over with this exclusive reveal of Mignola’s cover for the trade paperback Witchfinder: The Mysteries Of Unland. This is the latest book in a Hellboy spin-off series that centers on Sir Edward Grey, a Victorian detective of the occult who figures in the past of the Hellboy timeline.
With the time difference and the fact that Preview Night doesn’t start until about 9 PM Eastern Time, there’s not a lot to report from Wednesday’s news feed. Movie War Update: I’m seeing on Yahoo News that DC unveiled the latest Batsuit, but that will have to wait for tomorrow’s feed. Sony blinked, pushing back […]

Itty Bitty Hellboy sees the Aw Yeah Comics! team of Art Baltazar and Franco take on Mike Mignola’s red-skinned hero, for a miniseries starting in August. Originally due to be a three-issue series, fan demand has bumped the mini up to a bumper five-issue epic. And apropos of nothing, Dark Horse have sent a preview […]
One of IDW’s biggest successes has been their Artist Edition collection, which publish black and white art from some of the very best artists of all time – we’re talking Will Eisner, David Mazzucchelli and John Romita, here – in wonderful detail. This year at SDCC the company have announced that more artists will be experiencing […]
Dark Horse appears to be increasing their list of titles at a gradual but steady pace, with some laudable caution but what seems to be a specific agenda to build on their successes rather than simply allowing those successes to maintain their reputation over time. Many readers have been following the publisher’s works since their […]
You just want to see the image, don’t you. Announced on, of all places, Nerdist.com, Itty Bitty Hellboy came about due to the all-seeing eye of Dark Horse editor Scott Allie. Doesn’t everything? After the Aw Yeah! Comics kickstarter got funded, Allie got in contact with the creative team. Hellboy creator Mike Mignola had been looking […]
I feel like Mike Mignola and Duncan Fegredo have more than earned the status of being referred to simply by their surnames. Their creative partnership has lasted for years and years, and at C2E2 their new project has been announced. Returning to Hellboy, the new graphic novel Hellboy: The Midnight Circus will see the iconic […]
I noticed a common feature in the comics I was reading this week, a feature that made them all compelling as stories: the role of the underdog pitted against overwhelming odds. Seeing the psychological reactions of the characters was an important part of the ride, but excellent artwork, particularly in executing fight scenes, left me […]
Lord Henry Baltimore, Vampire Hunter, is more strictly speaking the hunter of a specific vampire, as THE WIDOW AND THE TANK one-shot reminds us. For such a goal-oriented guy, he certainly leaves plenty of ash-piles along the way, not to mention the corpses of other creatures he may happen to encounter. Writers Mike Mignola and […]
The final issue of Mouse Guard: The Black Axe #6 goes on sale next week, and it wraps up not only the origin of the legendary Black Axe but a series of pin-ups that run in each issue. #6 features a pin-up by the team of Mike Mignola and Dave Stewart. David Petersen’s fantasy epic starring mice has always been equal parts cute and majestic and Mignola/Stewart have nailed the vibe.
December has been a big month for Dark Horse, with two much anticipated books finally hitting the shelves: Mike Mignola’s HELLBOY IN HELL #1 and Evan Dorkin’s HOUSE OF FUN. Coincidentally, both books signal the return of their respective creators to solo work; for Mignola, it’s been 7 years since he drew and scripted a […]
In a panel devoted to the future of the Hellboy universe, it became quite a task to distinguish between all its various parts currently in motion. But is it perpetual motion, or will it face its abrupt end with Hellboy’s descent into Hell? After all, it seems like fate has finally had its way with […]
