Exclusive | New ‘Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.’ & ‘Lobster Johnson’ Coming in 2017

This week, Mike Mignola’s Hellboy in Hell vol. 2 is in comic book stores, and it seems like a pretty definitive ending for the title character. But that doesn’t mean that Mignola is through with Hellboy. Not by a long shot!

Mignola may be currently focusing his artistic efforts on painting outside of comics, but he remains committed to continuing the fictional world of Hellboy and his fellow supernatural creations. Earlier this week, Mignola and Dark Horse announced a Hellboy spinoff called The Visitor, which will explore the alien assassin who was sent to kill Hellboy decades ago. But today, CraveOnline has the exclusive reveal of two new miniseries: Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.: 1954 – Ghost Moon and Lobster Johnson: The Pirate’s Ghost!

The Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.: 1954 miniseries takes place in the earliest days of Hellboy’s adventures, and it will start with a tale that finds the World’s Greatest Paranormal investigator on his own against a very familiar threat. As for Lobster Johnson, he’s a pulp era superhero who has his own problems to deal with. But any story with a pirate ghost already has our attention!
