HB and co. are back diving into danger and mystery, and generally getting themselves in trouble in this fantastic two-part issue. See my reviews of Klaus #1 and RUMBLE #9. Title: Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. 1953 Writer: Mike Mignola Artist: Ben Stenbeck Cover Artist:Mike Mignola with Dave Stewart Publisher: Dark Horse Release Date: November […]
I am so excited that the creator of Hellboy and The Amazing Screw-on Head is taking on my favorite monster in Frankenstein Underground. The cover below is vintage Mignola. (You can’t see me but I am smiling this announcement makes me very happy.) Mignola did an exclusive interview with MTV about the new comic. You […]
That’s right, the guy that brought us Hellboy and The B.P.R.D and others is going Frankenstein on us. I couldn’t be happier. After being a recent convert to the world of Hellboy (Yes, it was a long time coming) I’ve been getting into the more recent releases and just can’t stop loving Mignola’s style. We […]
Don’t miss Lord Baltimore’s finale! Will he be able to stop this vampire plague at last? Lord Baltimore must prevail in the Chapel of Bones for the sake of all humanity. Baltimore: Chapel of Bones #1 (of 2) Writer: Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden Artist: Ben Stenbeck Cover Art: Ben Stenbeck and Dave Stewart Publisher: […]
I’ll just straight up admit it, I find myself giving more attention to the comics that Dark Horse puts out than any other. This past week I read the new Star Wars #4, The Massive #10, Sledgehammer 44 #2 and X #0.
Before you sigh and roll your eyes about another WW2, robots and Nazi shenanigans of Mignola and Dark Horse just give this first issue a shot at least.
So I just finished reading through all three issues of Dark Horse’s Hellboy: The Fury and it was impressive. The story feels very simple and straightforward, basically you have Hellboy fighting Nimue, an ancient sorceress, to save humanity (okay, maybe that doesn’t sound real simple but it feels like it). One of the great things […]
Boom! Studios has nine comics coming out this week for Wednesday, May 4th, and we’re letting you take a look at all of them before they go on sale? Yeah, even the one coming out on free comic book day.
Hi and welcome to another edition of Greg Sez. This is the special holofoil, die-cut, chromium Emerald City Comicon edition. What does that mean for you? Nothing. Just that by the time you read this, I’ll already be back from Seattle, hopefully with some good scoops for WatchPlayRead! Anyhow, let’s get started here. Dynamite Comics […]
I love the Hellboy one shots! I love the big story arcs too, but its nice to get a break from them every once in a while and do something small and self contained. What could be better than a Mike Mignola Hellboy one shot? Well for starters this is a double feature, and it […]
An open letter to Mike Mignola Dear Mike, Today I read the latest installment of BPRD. I just wanted to thank you for writing a comic that I need to read, and that I look forward to every month. After I pick up an issue I cannot wait for the next one to come out. […]
I love a good one shot! Occasionally it’s nice to have a self contained story that doesn’t leave you scrambling for crossovers and back issues, or pining for next month’s issue. The catch is that you never know what you are going to get with a Hellboy one shot. The last one shot was about […]
The previous issue takes place on a boat as “our hero” sails after his foe, he gives Vanessa(and us) back story as to why he- Lord Baltimore- is hunting vampires. As this issue opens their ship is floundering in a storm, and eventually capsizes. Baltimore and Vanessa are washed ashore on an island ominously referred […]
Mignola is killing me! Something big seems to be coming in the Hellboy universe. Depending on how you look at what is happening, the story could affect every Hellboy associated book. The problem we have is that all we’re getting are more and more puzzle pieces. We can’t even begin to see how they will […]
