Horror News Network has selected Mike Mignola and Scott Allie as our Co-Writers of the Year for their work on Dark Horse Comics’ B.P.R.D. The Devil You Know.
Mignola and Allie (along with Sebastian and Max Fiumara and Dave Stewart) won last year’s Best Series award for Abe Sapien, and the team has picked off exactly where they left off with The Devil You Know. After the death of Hellboy, the Mignolaverse continued on with a number of excellent mini-series (both historical and modern), but the foundation of the line has always been the B.P.R.D. titles, which continually introduced new characters and expanded the scope of the world that the stories take place in.
The Devil You Know is no exception to this, and long-time fans have been rewarded with the continued adventures of Liz Sherman and Ted Howards, a reunion with Abe, and a sinister threat, much different than the recently vanquished Ogdru Hem. Fans are certainly intrigued and delighted by the unique creatures and battles, but it is the humanity that Mignola and Allie bring to the human and non-human characters that make their writing stand out.
Stay tuned for the Horror News Network Comic Award for Best Series of the year coming your way soon!
