Dark Horse Comics has announced that legendary Hellboy creator Mike Mignola is set to both write and illustrate his first full length comic book in five years with Sir Edward Grey: Acheron, the next chapter in the Hellboy Universe.
“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.”
“The mysterious Edward Grey has long been in the shadows of the Hellboy Universe,” added 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 is set for release on December 1st.
