If you want to inspire excitement in the comic reading audience, just mention the name Mike Mignola. Whether it be in his HellBoy Universe or collaborating with other great authors and artists, his name carries weight. Huge, awe-inspiring weight. So it comes as no surprise that the announcement of a Mike Mignola written and illustrated book, after five years would stoke some excitement. With that in mind, coming December 1st from Dark Horse Comics, Mike Mignola presents Sir Edward Grey: Acheron. This was announced in today’s Press Release from Dark Horse:
Dark Horse Comics to Publish Sir Edward Grey: Acheron
The Next Chapter in the Hellboy Universe
(September 13, 2021) For the first time in five years, legendary Hellboy creator Mike Mignola is both writing and illustrating a full length comic book, one which provides the next chapter in the fabled Hellboy Universe. Titled Sir Edward Grey: Acheron, the one shot story is set following the events of B.P.R.D.: The Devil You Know, in which the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense managed to fight off the monsters on earth long enough for humanity to barely escape underground. The story is Mignola’s first full length comic book since Dark Horse Comics published Hellboy in Hell in 2016. Here he reunites with award-winning colorist Dave Stewart, as well as letterer and longtime collaborator Clem Robbins. Dark Horse Comics will publish Sir Edward Grey: Acheron this winter, featuring a main cover by Mignola and Stewart and a variant cover by acclaimed artist Ben Stenbeck and Stewart.
“I’ve been saying I’ve been semi-retired for years, but I keep coming up with new stories anyway” said Mignola. “In Sir Edward Grey: Acheron, Hellboy is dead and gone and the B.P.R.D. are underground. And so it turns to Edward Grey to return to Hell to confront a familiar foe and finish what needs to be done to truly save the world.”
Dark Horse Editor, Katii O’Brien
“The mysterious Edward Grey has long been in the shadows of the Hellboy Universe,” said Katii O’Brien. “The Victorian occult detective’s ghost made repeated appearances in Hellboy in Hell, but now he’s front and center. If the original weird investigator can’t save the world, no one can.”
Sir Edward Grey: Acheron will be published by Dark Horse Comics on December 1, 2021. For more information about the Hellboy Universe, follow Dark Horse Comics on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
