Mike Mignola and Adam Hughes Re-Team for ‘Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.: The Seven Wives Club’

Original Hellboy creator Mike Mignola and fan-favorite artist Adam Hughes will reunite for an all-new one-shot, Hellboy & The B.P.R.D.: The Seven Wives Club this December.

According to the official press release, the holiday-themed tale is a “…ghostly yarn features Hellboy coming to the aid of a young girl whose ghost hunt in Savannah, GA goes terribly wrong. Things go from bad to worse, as they often do, when a visit to an abandoned medical school reveals sinister layers to a grisly long-ago murder.”

Mignola revealed further details about the holiday connections to Seven Wives stating that “The Victorians used to read and tell ghost stories during the Christmas season.  We might not be reading by candlelight these days, but I do like a good ghost story during the holiday season, especially when there are stolen cadavers, vengeful spirits, and art by Adam Hughes.”

The always enthusiastic Hughes expressed his excitement “…to be collaborating with Mike again and flabbergasted as always that anyone wants to work with me twice.  This one’s so spooky, I’m only drawing it during the daytime.”

Mignola and Hughes’ last collaboration, Hellboy: Krampusnacht, won an Eisner Award in 2018 for Best Single Issue/One-Shot.

Adam Hughes will provide both the main cover as well as a variant cover, and Mike Mignola will also provide a variant cover.  Hellboy & The B.P.R.D.: The Seven Wives Club one-shot comic will be available at finer comic book stores everywhere on December 11.
