SDCC 12: Dark Horse announces a triumphant return….


What??? Hellboy isn’t dead????

Mike Mignola’s iconic Hellboy died in THE FURY mini-series. But no one ever stays dead in comics — especially hell-spawned demons.


  1. From what I read back when “The Fury” came out, Hellboy is actually still dead…this book is going to chronicle his “afterlife” in Hell.

  2. Yeah, he’s dead, dead, dead. He’s just in Hell from now on. (Mignola will still do stories set in Hellboy’s past when he was still kicking.)

  3. Any chance Mignola’s doing the artwork too?

  4. He dead! This is him just wandering around Hell!
    Part of the reason Mignola set it in Hell was so that he didn’t have to worry about too much reference and correct detail as far as location goes. (It’s easier to make up a building in Hell than draw a Japanese temple)
    So that answers the second question- Mignola is in fact drawing all interiors! Joy unto the world!

  5. They apparently won’t be doing Hellboy mini-series anymore as Hellboy in Hell will be ongoing. Since only Mignola is doing the all of the artwork, it is likely never to be 12 issues a year. However, Mignola has said he will try to have enough issues completed of any storyline so that they will ship on a monthly. Which is why it is taking so long for the first issue to come out (this was all announced in SDCC 2011).

  6. Yes, yes, yes. Sweet joy, just bought library edition number 5 today! Isn’t going to hell like coming home for him? If you are the reluctant anti-Christ can you die? Questions, questions.

  7. Hey, The Beat, any chance we can get a correction about Hellboy not being dead?
