Dark Horse Comics is unleashing Hellboy onto us yet again! Coming next spring, “Hellboy: Into the Silent Sea” will release much to the excitement of fans everywhere.
The new story follows the events of the classic story “The Island” and sees Hellboy setting sail from the wreckage of a deserted island only to cross paths with a ghost ship. Taken captive by the phantom crew that plans to sell him to the circus, Hellboy is dragged along by a captain who will stop at nothing in pursuit of a powerful sea creature.
“Hellboy: Into the Silent Sea” was co-written by Mignola, co-written and illustrated by Eisner Award winning artist Gary Gianni and colored by award winning colorist Dave Stewart.
Gianni has quite an impressive work record. He has worked with iconic writers including George R. R. Martin, Harlan Ellison, Ray Bradbury and Michael Chabon. He previously teamed up with Michael Kaluta to work on the classic pulp hero, The Shadow. However, Gianni is best known as the creator of the Monstermen series which appeared as a back-up feature in Hellboy. He also illustrated Prince Valiant, the syndicated newspaper comic strip, for 8 years.
“Hellboy: Into the Silent Sea” is the third Hellboy original graphic novel, following the classics, “Hellboy: House of the Living Dead” by Mignola, Richard Corben and Stewart (2011) and “Hellboy: The Midnight Circus” by Mignola, Duncan Fegredo and Stewart.
