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.

It has been almost a decade since Chuck Palahniuk released his iconic novel “Fight Club” and he is bringing the world back to us for a sequel. “Fight Club 2” will release as a Dark Horse Comics series with 10 issues. It will be illustrated by Cameron Stewart.

According to Dark Horse Comics, Fight Club 2 will take place 10 years after the ending of Palahnuik’s book, when the narrator realises he and his violent, manipulative companion Tyler are the same person and he is reunited with con-woman Marla Singer after she has been kidnapped.

Palahniuk also added that the sequel will take place both in the future and the past. Not only will fans see what happened after the end of the film but also the origins of Tyler in his childhood.

“Tyler is something that maybe has been around for centuries and is not just this aberration that’s popped into his mind.”

Palahniuk has said that most of the characters in the first book will return including Project Mayhem who apparently still have great influence in his adult life.

“Fight Club 2” the graphic novel series will debut in May 2015.
