THE VISITOR (Mike Mignola, Chris Roberson / Paul Grist)

Mais qui étaient donc ces extra-terrestres aperçus brièvement au tout début des aventures d’Hellboy (dans Les Germes de la Destruction) et pourquoi ont-ils envoyé un assassin tuer le futur enquêteur du paranormal (voir Le Ver Conquérant) ?

Mike Mignola et Chris Roberson (Hellboy & the B.P.R.D.) lèveront le voile sur l’un des plus étranges mystères du passé d’Hellboy dans la future mini-série The Visitor : How and why he stayed.

[quote=“Chris Roberson”]“In Hellboy: Seed of Destruction, readers were given a brief glimpse of a crew of strange looking aliens monitoring the supernatural doings on Earth from way out in space. We later learned that one of those aliens had been sent to Earth to kill him in 1944, but chose to spare him at the last moment. In THE VISITOR, we explore who those aliens are, why that assassin was sent to kill Hellboy, and just what he was doing in all of the years in between.”

“THE VISITOR is the story of a stranger in a strange land. Stranded on Earth for more than half a century, an alien assassin observes humanity’s capacity both for compassion and for destruction. We see history unfold through his eyes, just as the experience of living among humans changes who he is.”[/quote]

Aux dessins, le britannique Paul Grist (Jack Staff) fera ses débuts dans le Mignolaverse.

Après un prologue dans le Hellboy : Winter Special de janvier 2017, The Visitor #1 sortira le 22 février 2017.
