Seeing as the last one a few days ago went quite well thought I would start another one. THE thread to discuss Hellboy and Mignolaverse news. Post Mignola art you like or whatever artist has contributed to the verse or your own Hellboy collection. Recently re-read Darkness Calls and I liked this panel a lot.

Favourite Mignolaverse artist other than Mignola?

What do you think of the reboot plans so far?

People excited for Koschei and the Visitor?

Also, nice interview here:

I fucking love the mignolaverse
This has been my lock screen paper for so long and I don't really see myself ever changing it
>>
Can't wait for the ultimate monkey final boss of the Mignolaverse. As we all know, monkeys are the root of all evil to Mignola.

Comic Hellboy is my overall personal favorite character in comics.

There is just something about him I connect with.

I love all of mignolas covers, and plan on collecting all the main Hellboy ones and having a wall dedicated to them

James Harren is a glorious art god
>>
>>94517822
not that guy but I read it when it came out, overall it's nothing amazing but the sequence when Romulus is capturing Death was spectacular with Mignola's illustrations

This literally killed the excitement I was building up inside myself. She has no stage presence at all and they hired her to play one of the best villains of the series
>>
so the new LoJo was one of the best issues of his series

Hellboy and the BPRD comes back this week, sure hope Roberson gets better
>>
I wish we had gotten to see Pandemonium more, it's been the center of so much crazy stuff
>>
>>94519130
One day they'll explain how his Claw works. Is it some super-heated metal stamp? Magic bullshit? The power of JUSTICE itself?

Duncan, Rivera, Harren or Davis.

Hyped as fuck. Didn't like the casting news earleir though.

wat dis

I really want my mate to read Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. and she seems interested. She likes me sending her comic shit every Wednesday, like panels and stuff. I don't wanna spoil too much though, y'know? How do I convince her?
>>
>>94519656
Mignola is writing a miniseries on Koschei, the immortal swordsman from Darkness Calls
>>
>>94519554
ah man I didn't really like this story but I did like the end when he finally gets to inflict justice on that guy that he's been after forever. Or the one where the Nazi jumps from a blimp, thinking he got away haha I love the lobster
>>
>>94519688
>Koschei
Not sure why he'd want to, but I'm also convinced/ brainwashed that Mignola could make anything interesting and can do no wrong.
>>
>>94518150
The Black Flame seems to now be a literal manifestation of Ereshikgal, who seems to be God's opposite and equal. Thanks would probably get rekt without the gauntlet in a straight up fight.

Apparently shit got fucked when the Ogdru Hem started rising up en masse, and it was enough to weaken the sealing power of the Golden Cocoons. Enough so that Nergal-Jahad managed to break free, and manifest on Earth.
>>
>>94519688
Didn't he already do that though? Or is it something beyond "how Koschei became deathless"?

The Visitor is already out anon, hell, it's finished. As much as I hate Roberson its last issue really hit me in the feels.

I'm hype as fuck for Koschei though.

>>94519728
Nigga have you read 'How Koschei Became Deathless' by Guy Davis? I had been praying since I'd read that for Mignola to return to Koschei. Plus we get even more Thrice-Tenth Land fuckery, which is the most mystical part of the Mignolaverse imo (along with Hyperberum).

Plus Ben Stenbeck is illustrating it, and that man is a fucking gem when it comes to detail.

This makes me want to see ant-sized/possessed ant Ogdru Hem now.

I hope Roberson doesn't screw up the Rasputin mini, but supposedly Mignola is gonna be more involved in the scripting than he usually is on non Hellboy stuff
>>
>>94520177
He's improving, in my opinion. At least in the Visitor he wasn't as jarringly and disgustingly terrible as he was in Ghost Moon and The Exorcist.
>>
>>94520235
I've been saving it up so I can read it all at once, really hoping I enjoy it. it's such a good concept
>>
>>94520255
It's good, there are some continuity errors though.
>>
>>94519279
The Lobster himself is heavily implied to be a revenant, likely 'possessing' whatever corpse is at hand to manifest the Lobster. At least, that's what I gathered from Conqueror Worm and some other implications on the Lobster Johnson series (such as him surviving shit that kills everyone else like building-destroying explosions and crashing zeppelins). I think Mignolaversity did an article on it.

Kind of ties in with the Lobster's history too, with all the Pirate stuff, and how his precursor impregnated a whore, who then woke up the day after to find that a beheaded, dessicated corpse laying next to her in bed.

This panel sums up Koschei perfectly, in my opinion. Even Hellboy realizes that he done goofed, and that smug smile on the bastard. I knew I wanted a series on him (or just the Russian part of the Mignolaverse, really, shame Allie admitted there won't be any miniseries focusing on the Special Sciences Service).
>>
Is "The Doom That Came To Gotham" honorary Mignolaverse?
>>
>>94520469
it's basically Hellboy in a bat suit
>>
>>94520469
Technically no, only the Hellboy/BPRD stuff is Mignolaverse. Baltimore isn't even Mignolaverse
>>
Anyone else want an 'Edward Grey in Hell' sort of follow-up to Hellboy in Hell and Witchfinder, depicting Edward Grey's early adventures in hell?

I'm not sure if his role is done yet in the BPRD arc either (Hellboy in Hell foreshadowed some future action for him), but I certainly do wonder how the Witch Hunter turned into a formidable warlock a la Gustav Strobl himself.
>>
>>94520703
they're definitely gonna do more minis with him, I should reread the last one.
>>
>>94520735
>tfw roberson is doing witchfinder now
>tfw you read in service of angels from time to time because of just how good it is

City of the Dead had so much potential. We've known of Edward Grey and Giurescu duking it off since Wake the Devil, and yet it felt so anti-climactic.
>>
>>94520703
>Gray talking with Howards about the sword
>>
Any fans of Baltimore? I have been going through the series as the trades come and have been loving it.
>>
>>94521248
still have to sit down and read the final mini, i'll do a full reread at some point.
>>
Where is the best place to read the minis?

Bump

Somebody storytime the alien story please.
>>
Was anyone else disappointed in The Visitor mini? Like, if it was a 2 issue mini or even a one shot it would've been fine but it was too long and with too little excitement.

>>94521248
It's OK, I don't like the villains in it, they all feel like C-tier Hellboy villains.
>>
>new BPRD series starts
>no one storytimes
>no one cares
>>
>>94519807
Not that anon. But comics Thanos is a death worshiper to the point he's literally in love with the Grim Reaper.
>>
>>94523614
Same with last lobster Johnson issue and it was great!
>>
I'm very excited for the new BPRD arc. It's been a long time coming. I'm excited for the upcoming collections. I'm excited for Koschei. I'm CAUTIOUSLY excited for Rasputin.

>>94519840
Harren should be the ongoing artist. He just should. The familiarity and the humanity he imparted in these characters made them all so relatable. I don't feel that with Campbell at all.

>>94519130
He won't get better. He doesn't understand subtlety or how to tell a story without exposition. At least he didn't get the main BPRD book.
>>
>>94523601
Roberson, fucking it up. Dude can't write a fucking grocery list.
>>
Does anyone have that picture with all the hellboy comics listed on it?
>>
>>94524644
To be honest Harren's style, as magnificent as it is, always felt a little bit too wacky for me. (Then again, he did make the Long Death and the New York bits absolutely magnificent.) Dude's got loads of talent and I can understand why one'd pick him over Campbell, but I think Campbell's shadowing technique and overall dreariness brings him closer to Mignola and the apocalyptic vision.

I trust Ben Stenbeck could be the middle man between the two. I'd be a happy man if he were to become the artist.

>>94523614
It kind of felt... hollow to me, maybe it's Allie's writing, maybe it's just that the 'post' in post-apocalypse is making it apparent just now. It certainly doesn't feel like Arcudi's writing, that I'm sure of.

rip tian, you were never as cool as enos but rip anyway
>>
>>94519840
This is where Campbell fails BIG. Harren's Black Flame felt much more monstrous with that gaping hole in his chest, as opposed to how Campbell took it lazy and made it look like skele-superman.

>>
>>94526923
Yes its a reboot and definitely seems to be happening. So far we have David Harbour as Hellboy, Ian McShane as Professor Bruttenholm, Milla Jovovich as Nimune, the guy who did Star Trek Beyond's practical effects working on makeup and apparently Mignola is scripting.
>>
Isn't the main writer of this a Catholic?
How's God in this? Or Jesus if they appear?
I come from mad at god comics like preacher and i wanted something new

How about take off the fedora firstly. Most Gods come from folklore to their native country as opposed to an almighty. No Jesus, but Hellboy could be interpreted as the second coming.
>>
>>94527116
Mignola was raised Catholic, and you can definitely see elements of it in his work, particularly the strong focus on redemption, but i'm unsure if he's lapsed or not. God certainly exists, as seen in events like the Priest in the Crooked Man prayers to be blinded again being answered, but we never see him directly. Its somewhat similar to Satan/Lucifer in the series, who we only see speak around one line and most of the plot movers are slightly lower Demons. And the mythology of the setting takes a lot from non-biblical-canon such as the Book of Enoch and various writers such as Lovecraft, so it definitely isnt a 1:1 modern Christian cosmology.

As for Jesus the timeline skips from the Neolithic in Howards flashbacks to the Fall of Camelot briefly, then to the Victorian Era with Witchfinder. So we never really get the chance to see him, if he is around.
>>
>>94527033
good news, but i liked the fairytail mood and practical effects of the second one, hope they manage to keep that feel
>>
>>94527399
The Fairy-tale tone was definitely Del Toro's influence, given this seems like it will be closer to the comics we can expect it to feel more like a piece of Folklore.
>>
Should I finally read Baltimore or Edward Grey?
>>
>>94527779
witchfinder personally
>>
>>94527318
Mignola is super Catholic and always go to the church on the weekends.
>>
>>94527843
how do you know that? Also I cant imagine his parishioners know what he does for a living lmao
>>
>>94527972
he's a lapsed catholic
>>
>>94527442
that would be ok too if they can pull it off.
>>
Anyone keeping an up-to-date download archive? I only know the chronological one, but I'd like to read the original issues.
And if not, could anyone make it, please?
>>
>>94528346
He isn't.

Hell, the Catholic Church was one of the first organizations to defend Hellboy's status as human, and he is canonicaly a saint.

>>94527972
Man, there is an enormous tradition of fantasy writters that are Catholic or Christian.
>>
>>94530810
True, ever since Dante there have always been portrayals of demons and Hellspawn from devout catholics. I'm more imagining Mignola small-talking after church saying he created Hellboy and imagining people's shocked faces.
>>
>>94529591
When I looked at the chronological archive, it didn't have full issues. Was that just a fuckup on my end, or what?
>>
>>94530810
it goes deeper - the very concept of fantasy and fairy tale was preserved by neutral stance taken by Catholicism towards folklore as we learn from Tolkien, Lewis and Chesterton
