We’re already expressed our abounding joy at the opportunity to get creeped out by another Mike Mignola co-authored BPRD yarn for Dark Horse Comics. With sometime-writing partner Scott Allie and artist Laurence Campbell accompanying Mignola at the helm of this Wednesday’s BPRD: The Devil You Know #1, our skin is crawling–in a good way! Check out these preview pages Dark Horse was kind enough to share and try to enjoy the ebullience of marveling at the weird.
Okay, whatever the Hell that pale Lovecraftian horror show is might have a grotesque beauty to it, but it’s just as well it was cut in twain in the preview pages, lest it escape the borders of the comic and infect our dreams. Thanks, Misters Mignola, Allie, and Campbell… we think.
BPRD: The Devil You Know #1 hits comic shops this Wednesday from Dark Horse.
From the official issue description:
Before they were vanquished by the BPRD, Lovecraftian monsters created a Hell on Earth. Now Liz Sherman leads a crew through monster-infested ruins on the most important rescue mission of her life. As society tries to rebuild, strange cults vie for influence, and a demon emerges to lead the way . . .
