Christmas has come and gone, but Mike Mignola is making sure that we keep getting gifts from his uniquely whacked out world all winter long. Feast your eyes on a pair of previews from Dark Horse Comics starring the men, women, and monsters of the Mignolaverse — from Hellboy to the B.P.R.D. and beyond! First up, we have a look at B.P.R.D.: Hell on Earth #139, which hits store shelves on Wednesday, January 20. With New York City under mortal peril from the Black Flame, it’s a race against time for Johann and Liz to stop him before it’s too late.
The second preview making its way from the Mignolaverse to your eyeballs is a preview of “Mood Swings,” a short story featured in the Hellboy Winter Special One-Shot from novelist Chelsea Cain (Fight Club 2) and artist Mike Oeming. It’s a touching tale of holiday histrionics with Hellboy and Liz, which will drop on January 27, 2016. Take a peek at the official solicitation text, and our exclusive gallery below.
