Mike Mignola recently concluded his run on Hellboy over at Dark Horse earlier this year, leaving a bit of a hole in the supernatural horror comics continuum. However, if Max Millgate’s Jackboot & Ironheel is any indication, comic readers won’t have be devoid of new and innovative tales of the macabre to sink their teeth into. Mixing equal doses of war comics storytelling sensibilities and hold-your-breath pacing, Jackboot & Ironheel is one of the creepiest, most unnerving books you’ll lay eyes on this year. (That’s a hint, Mr. Millgate: At the conclusion of the Jackboot & Ironheel miniseries, here’s hoping you have more yarns in queue!)

In the meantime, take a gander at our exclusive preview of issue 2–out this Wednesday–that IDW was kind enough to share!


Jackboot & Ironheel #2, with writing and art by Max Millgate, is on sale this Wednesday from IDW.

From the official issue description:

EDDIE NEALE is a P.O.W. Confined to a castle cell, escape seems impossible. However, under the very noses of his Nazi captors, Eddie and some new allies form a plan… Now all he has to do. To escape is… take a leap into the unknown!
