YOUNG HELLBOY : THE HIDDEN LAND (Mike Mignola, Tom Sniegoski / Craig Rousseau)

Mike Mignola, le scénariste Tom Sniegoski et le dessinateur Craig Rousseau révéleront une aventure inédite de la jeunesse d’Hellboy dans la mini-série en 4 épisodes Young Hellboy : The Hidden Land.

La publication débutera en février.

In this four-issue series from Dark Horse Comics, Hellboy and Professor Bruttenholm are stranded on a strange island after a mishap on their way to a South American dig site. They soon find themselves confronted by all manner of monsters, and even when the stranger who rescues them turns out to be one of Hellboy’s heroes, they aren’t as safe as they think they are.

Tom Sniegoski :

" Young Hellboy: The Hidden Land is another look into our red-skinned paranormal investigator’s childhood," said Sniegoski. « The events in the series take place in May of 1947, before the events depicted in Hellboy: The Midnight Circus . Lighter in tone, Young Hellboy: The Hidden Land i s an exhilarating adventure that embraces the thrills and chills of the pulp adventure stories of the 1930s. Mysterious islands, vampire queens, dinosaurs, giant ape gods, and a new and exciting addition to the Hellboy Universe—Scarlett Santiago, the Sky Devil. I’ve always been fascinated by the glimpses into Hellboy’s childhood that Mike has given us, and to be asked to contribute to these stories, along with Mike, Craig, and Dave, is a dream come true. »

Ah, Craig Rousseau, j’aime bien.
