Mike Mignola and Richard Corben in the same book?
Mmmmm… boy! It doesn’t get much better than that!
Mignola, the big red dude’s creator, is back with this two-part lead-in story for the next major Hellboy series, Darkness Calls, set to arrive this fall. Joining him in this effort is the gifted Corben, best known for his work on Hellblazer, as they tackle an ancient African legend starring — you guessed it — Hellboy!
The art is sublime and the story is the same cryptic, engrossing fare reader’s have come to expect from Mignola. The only bad thing about it is you’ll have to wait a month for the conclusion.
