Exclusive: Dark Horse Announces Three New Hellboy Collections and We Have the Covers

Published

on

Anyone who knows us on Dread Central is aware that we’re huge fans of Dark Horse and the Hellboy universe that Mike Mignola has created. Wildly imaginative and brilliantly constructed, it’s a series that plays with expectations in the most delightful and enchanting of ways.

Today, we’re thrilled to be able to help Dark Horse announce three new Hellboy collections and reveal the covers for each one. The three collections are “Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.: 1955 – Burning Season” (trade paperback), “Abe Sapien: Dark and Terrible Volume 2” (hardcover), and “Rasputin: Voice of the Dragon” (trade paperback). Respectively, they will be coming out June 6, 2018, March 21, 2018, and July 25, 2018.

Below you’ll find the covers as well as descriptions of each collection. Click on the covers to see them in higher resolution.

Hellboy encounters unseen predators, strange cases of combustion, and a weapon at an Air Force base that is more than it seems.

iZombie co-creator Chris Roberson and Mike Mignola join Shawn Martinbrough, Brian Churilla, and Paolo Rivera to guide Hellboy to unveil a volatile new weapons project with the monstrous side effects.

This volume collects Hellboy And The B.P.R.D.: 1955 – Secret Nature, Occult Intelligence #1-3, Burning Season, and bonus material.

One of the great mysteries of the Hellboy world is revealed as Abe uncovers his connections to the monsters threatening to end the world.

When monsters began to tear down civilization, suspicion fell on Abe Sapien, who resembled the frogmen plaguing mankind. The two volumes of Dark and Terrible tell the complete story of Abe’s quest to prove his innocence as he went AWOL from the Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense.

At first he ran from the truth, but as this volume picks up he’s ready to face facts about his origins and his purpose in the world—revealed in classically oblique Mignola style—all while being pursued by a mad necromancer who feels betrayed by the Devil and is eager to use Abe to gain new power amongst the creatures that have created a Hell on Earth.


“Rasputin: Voice of the Dragon” TPB

Mike Mignola (W/Cover), Chris Roberson (W), Christopher Mitten (A), Dave Stewart (C)

With the world at war, Hellboy’s future guardian Trevor Bruttenholm enlists with Britain’s Military Intelligence, where he uncovers a collection of strange messages. Believing it to be an occult language, he follows his hunch and is thrown into a world of animated corpses, deadly mystics, and Nazi agents. The treacherous journey leads him face to face with the man who will bring Hellboy to Earth—Rasputin!

This volume collects Rasputin: Voice of the Dragon #1-#5.

Which Monsters May Be Making Their TV Debut in Junji Ito Collection?

Published

on

Studio Deen’s highly-anticipated anime anthology Junji Ito Collection has been building buzz, especially since its new teaser dropped weeks ago. Eagle-eyed fans who are well-acquainted with horror mangaka Junji Ito’s body of work will spot some familiar faces in the new trailer, brought to the small screen by showrunner Shinobu Tagashira.

So, who among Ito’s famous menagerie of monsters may be making an appearance in the show when it airs next year?

Oshikiri Toru

Oshikiri is the morally-questionable highschooler who begins to question his perception of reality in Hallucinations, a series of some loosely connected one-shots. Oshikiri’s a little on the short side, with an even shorter fuse. One thing he’s not short on is moneyas evidenced by his impressive, albeit creepy, mansion. We’ve yet to see which of his adventureswhich range from murder to parallel dimensionswill be his television debut.

Yuuko

The once-chatty Yuuko falls ill and sees her worst fears come to pass in Slug Girl, the famous one-shot whose brand of body horror is sure to feel like a distant cousin (or maybe a predecessor?) to Uzumaki‘s “The Snail” chapter. It offers little in the way of answers but is best enjoyed in all its bizarre glory.

The Intersection Bishounen

In Lovesick Dead, one of Ito’s longer standalone stories, an urban legend causes a rash of suicides when young girls begin to call upon a mysterious, black-clad spirit called the Intersection Bishounen. The custom catches on quickly among teenagers, out late and eager for him to tell them their fortune in life and love, since his advice is to die for. Literally.

Souichi Tsujii

A long-running recurring character in Ito’s manga (probably second only to Tomie herself), you’ll know Souichi by the nails he sucks on or sticks out of his moutha strange habit borne out of an iron deficiency. He’s an impish kid whose fascination with the supernatural makes him the odd man out in an otherwise normal family. The morbid pranks he likes to playfunny only to him—don’t do much to endear him to his peers or relatives, either.

Fuchi

The titular character in Fashion Model, Fuchi works as a professional model for her, shall we say, unique look and Amazonian stature. When she and another actress are hired by a crew of indie filmmakers, Fuchi shows them that she doesn’t like sharing the limelight. She also makes a cameo in a couple of Souichi’s stories, and in them he finds her genuinely attractive. Beauty, after all, is in the eye of the beholder.
