Hellboy creator Mike Mignola is not one to leave us hanging this holiday season. He knows that yule only works if there are spooky tales to tell.
There is a long tradition of telling ghost stories at Christmas. I love ghost stories more than just about anything and I love that Christmas time of year so I wanted to do my bit to carry on that tradition.
The Hellboy Winter Special 2018 landed in comic shops this Wednesday, December 12th, and it’s waiting there for you–if it isn’t already sold out!
The special contains three stories:
- In “Happy New Year, Ava Gallucci,” writer Mike Mignola, artist Ben Stenbeck and colorist Dave Stewart team-up for a New Year’s Eve séance gone wrong when Hellboy visits a family’s English home
- In “Lost Ones” celebrated cartoonists Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá revisit the acclaimed B.P.R.D.: Vampire; for a haunting, midnight ceremony
- In “The Empty Chair,” acclaimed artist Tonci Zonjic returns to write and draw a Lobster Johnson tale of mobsters, mayhem and murder at the holidays
The Special has a cover by Mike Mignola, a variant cover by Fábio Moon, and a variant cover by Gabriel Bá.
Take a look inside and cozy up by the fire for some hair-raising tales!
