Mike Mignola Brings Fans New Hellboy Comic For Halloween

Comic book visionary Mike Mignola still has more adventures up his sleeve for his favorite creation–Hellboy–and the latest will hit comic book shops just in time for Halloween.

Each issue of HellboyThe Silver Lantern Club–a brand-new five-issue miniseries from Dark Horse Comics–will highlight “a different Victorian occult investigator who battled evil years before Hellboy was on the scene,” according to a release from Dark Horse.

The series–written by Mignola and Chris Roberson (iZombie) and illustrated by Christopher Mitten and Ben Stenbeck (with colors by Michelle Madsen)–will be available Oct. 27. Check out the cover of the 32-page premiere issue–rendered by Mignola, Mitten and Dave Stewart–on this page.

Roberson described the Silver Lantern Club as “a group of occult investigators who met regularly in a London tavern to swap stories over drinks.” In this new series, Hellboy and Professor Trevor Bruttenholm “take a break from an ongoing investigation to meet with the professor’s Uncle Simon at that same tavern–who was a member of the club himself–to hear stories of the glory days.”

In the premiere issue, Hellboy learns about the mysteries of an exorcism gone wrong “when his occult investigator relative reveals secretive and perilous adventures of one of the Hellboy Universe’s most mysterious societies.”

Using a unique format, each issue will follow Hellboy and the professor (drawn by Stenbeck) as they listen to a new occult adventure from the Silver Lantern Club’s history (drawn by Mitten).
