Dork Art: The Mignolaverse (+ AVP) in 2014!
The other day, Dark Horse Comics editor Scott Allie spoke with Bloody Disgusting about their horrific plans for 2014. In the article you'll read about the new Prometheus, Grindhouse, and Strain comics. Not to mention the ever expanding Alien vs Predator saga. Frankly, the coolest aspect about that Battle Royal is the above cover by Hellboy creator Mike Mignola. I don't think I've ever seen him tackle those icons before (at least not together), but these beasts are absolutely perfect for Mignola's newly refined style. The man is just getting better with age. Also, he talks a little about the next Hellboy in Hell arc titled "The Death Card," as well as the epic "Reign of the Black Flame" about to devastate the BPRD ongoing. Things are not going well for the last humans of Earth. Again, if you are not reading this series then you are missing out on the single greatest Apocalypse story ever fashioned in any medium. The below covers for next year's BPRD issues 115-119 showcase the history of the franchise from folks like Mignola, Richard Corbin, and Kevin Nowlan.
