For many years the world of “B.P.R.D” has been brought to us by the award winning creative team of scribe Mike Mignola (“HELLBOY”), and illustrator Guy Davis (“BATMAN: NEVERMORE”, “HELLBLAZER”). That all changed recently as the artist parted ways with the rest of the “B.P.R.D” crew as his time with the series had come to an end with the final issue of the last arc. Enter artist Tyler Crook. The illustrator was recently announced as the newest artist to take up the task of illustrating Abe Sapien and the rest of the “B.P.R.D” crew, and last week Tyler was gracious enough to sit down and talk about working with Mike, illustrating one of the biggest macabre series running, and arm wrestling.

It has been a long and crazy road, paved with plenty of macabre turns for “HELLBOY”, Liz Sherman, and the rest of the crew in Mike Mignola’s “B.P.R.D”. However, there has always been an air of mystery surrounding the ladder, and beginning this April Dark Horse Comics will be changing all of that with their newest story-arc in the series, “THE DEAD REMEMBERED”. Inside you can get a 6 page glimpse inside the book before it hits shelves next month. Read on for the skinny!
Myself and Johnny_Trouble were fortunate enough to meet some great new faces at the 2011 C2E2 convention over the weekend on our excursion to Chicago with photo journalist JerryBaker, one of which being Dark Horse Comics Publicity Manager and all around nice guy, Aub Driver. Aub was good enough to sit down and chat with us about everything that the company will be bringing readers in 2011, from “HELLBOY”, to “DOLLHOUSE”, and everything in between. Below you can check out the interview and catch yourself up on what looks to be an exciting year in comics for the publisher, and a very special thanks to Aub for taking the time to sit down and talk with us.
This one might just be a rumor, but it got me excited enough to share. According to Bleeding Cool News genre artist Scott Hampton (“SIMON DARK”, “SILVERHEELS”) is going to be taking on an unspecified “HELLBOY” project. Not details on the project have been released, but seeing as Mignola has stated several times that he was a big fan of “SIMON DARK (A series that was canceled far to quickly) it would make sense that the two might come together on some sort of collaborative effort. In any event, if you make the jump you can enjoy the first 9 minute episode of Hampton’s short horror film “THE TONTINE” which is based upon a story by legend Clive Barker, and filmed in the same building as “CABIN FEVER”.
I may be dead tired, and my feet might be bleeding from what was C2E2, but that isn’t stopping me from keeping you loyal readers up to date on all the biggest news in the comic book world right now. Inside you can get all the scoop on the biggest little news stories going right now such as Mike Mignola’s thoughts on a third ‘HELLBOY’ film, the disappointing opening weekend for ‘KICK-ASS’, and the dream-team crossover of ’30 DAYS OF NIGHT’ and ‘THE X-FILES’.

I have to say that for the better half of a year now the “B.P.R.D” series from Mike Mignola (“HELLBOY”) has bettered the more popular “HELLBOY”. While Big Red is still good, there seems to be something lacking in the past few arcs. But when it comes to “B.P.R.D” the series has been nothing but great fun and old school entertainment. Inside you can read the first 3 pages of the newest issue that drops this coming Wednesday as well as the full synopsis. Read on for the skinny.
All the way back in 2007 Mike Mignola (“B.P.R.D”, “ABE SAPIAN”) wrote a little story arc called “DARKNESS CALLS”. The series was said to be the beginning of the “second half” of Hellboy’s life, and in effect a new beginning. The story, that was illustrated by artist Duncan Fegredo, proved to be one of the most successful arc in the lifespan of the series and did well on its word that it would be the start of something much different for Big Red. Well with any beginning there must be an end, and even though Mignola intends to continue writing the character for years to come, this phase of Hellboy’s life seems to have finally run its course. So what’s next? The end? Read on to find out.
In the ‘it’s about time’ portion of the news today we have the announcement of the latest arc in Mike Mignola’s ever popular (and awesome) “HELLBOY” series. This time the cigar smokin’, gun-totin, red devil finds himself knee deep in luchadores, evil turkeys, and a horde of the undead! Now I know you’re interested. Read on for the full preview of Mignola and Co’s “HELLBOY IN MEXICO”!
Another Wednesday brings new comic releases for us, a mostly thin list of comics coming out this week. Here are a couple that you might want to check out for: Strange Adventures of HP Lovecraft #4 and Locke and Key Crown of Shadows #1. Strange Adventures is in it’s last issue and has been great up to this point and Crown of Shadows goes back to the well in this new story arc of Locke and Key. What are you going to get this week? Full list after the break.
Wednesday is new comic book day and we have a pretty good selection this week for horror. Stand by favorites like Hellboy, Buffy, Chucky, and Army of Darkness are here. The terrific ‘Abyss’ like comic Challenger Deep is available in trade paperback. My pick for this week would be Image Comic’s Killer of Demons. I read a preview of this and it looks pretty sweet with it’s tongue in cheek humor and amazingly strong art style. What are you getting this week? List after the break…
A demon, raised from infancy after being conjured by and rescued from the Nazis, grows up to become a defender against the forces of darkness.
