Cover Of The Day 4/23/15

When it was announced that Alex Maleev would be the artist for the new Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. miniseries, I knew Dark Horse had a winning combination. The title is set in the early days of the Bureau and chronicles Hellboy’s first mission with them. A vital portion of his history which had been undocumented until now. Mike Mignola continues to expand and add considerable depth to the Mignolaverse and based on the covers for issue #2 and #5 presented here, Maleev proves that he was the perfect choice as a collaborator.

Pulp Corner: Lobster Johnson – The Satan Factory

I’ll be the first to admit, I’m not well versed in the Mignolaverse. I want to be, but my “to read” pile of comics and trades just keeps growing exponentially. I’ve got a little Hellboy and a little B.P.R.D. under my belt, but not much.  I knew they had their resident pulpish vigilante hero from the 1930’s Lobster Johnson, but for whatever reason I never got around to reading any of his miniseries. In a foreign comic book store in Buffalo, NY I was wandering through the bookshelves of trades and found a small print novel.

Pulp Corner: Hellboy – Seeds Of Destruction

Hellboy1

I’m wrong about a lot of things. Sometimes I won’t give something a chance based on some strange pre conceived notion I had. Hellboy definitely falls into that camp.

I don’t have a clue what I thought Hellboy was about, but I remember seeing previews for the movie when it came out and I guess I thought it was some kind of weird Van Hesling type character that hunted beasts. That all changed when I saw this picture.

I asked Martian Luthor Kang what it was from and when he said Hellboy my jaw dropped. I told him I didn’t know anything about the series and he followed that up with saying that it was more Indiana Jones than it had a right to be. Once I heard that I sought out the first trade immediately.

I was pleasantly surprised.
