Back in December of 2017, the Eisner Award-winning creative team of Hellboy creator Mike Mignola and artist Adam Hughes stuffed fans stockings with Hellboy: Krampusnacht, and we've now learned that they're reuniting for an all-new one-shot *this* December!
Titled Hellboy & The B.P.R.D.: The Seven Wives Club, the comic is written by Mignola and illustrated by Hughes. The ghostly yarn features Hellboy coming to the aid of a young girl whose ghost hunt in Savannah, GA goes terribly wrong. Things go from bad to worse, as they often do, when a visit to an abandoned medical school reveals sinister layers to a grisly long-ago murder.
"The Victorians used to read and tell ghost stories during the Christmas season," said Mignola. "We might not be reading by candlelight these days, but I do like a good ghost story during the holiday season, especially when there are stolen cadavers, vengeful spirits, and art by Adam Hughes."
"I’m dead thrilled to be collaborating with Mike again and flabbergasted as always that anyone wants to work with me twice," said Adam Hughes. "This one’s so spooky, I’m only drawing it during the daytime."
Hughes will provide both the main cover and a variant cover, and Mignola will also provide a variant cover. You can check out all three covers below.
Dark Horse Comics will publish Hellboy & The B.P.R.D.: The Seven Wives Club one-shot on December 11th, 2019.
