Mike Mignola Returns to Comics with Vampire Graphic Novel Mr. Higgins Comes Home

Gizmodo recently reported that Mike Mignola will be returning to comics with the original Dark Horse graphic novel Mr. Higgins Comes Home on October 25th, 2017.

Mr. Higgins Comes Home will be “…written by Mignola and with art from (Warwick) Johnson-Cadwell,  (and) is a send up of classic vampire stories, as two Vampire hunters convince the titular Mr. Higgins to return to the scene of his wife’s tragic death and confront the dark mysteries of what happened to him at the sinister Castle Golga.”

Mignola is no stranger to vampires; not only have they been featured in many of his “Mignola-verse” titles, but long-time fans will remember his work on Topps Comics’ adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula in 1992.

Mignola took a break from the medium after finishing his Hellboy in Hell saga and his long running Abe Sapien and BPRD: Hell On Earth series also wrapped up in 2016.  Fans need not fear the end of the “Mignola-verse’ however, as many titles such as Hellboy and the BPRD: 1954, Lobster Johnson: The Pirate’s Ghost, The Visitor, and the continuation of BPRD: Hell on Earth entitled BPRD: The Devil You Know by Mignola, Scott Allie, and Laurence Campbell.

Stay tuned for more news as it happens on the Horror News Network.
