What’s Up With Hellboy for 2012?

We occasionally light-heartedly josh Dark Horse Comics around here for their tendency lately to turn out collectibles instead of publishing comics, but the House of Richardson does actually have some great stuff hitting shelves.

Mike Mignola recently broke out what’s up for Anung Un Rama in 2012, and how he’s going to top Hellboy in a lucha libre match with Frankenstein’s Monster (no, seriously):

  • We’re finally going to see a resolution to that whole “he’s got a stone hand that’s going to end the world” plotline that’s been popping up occasionally during the series. Mignola has promised to wrap that up for good this year in the main Hellboy miniseries for 2012.
  • “Pickens County Horror” will embroil the B.P.R.D. with what we desperately hope are hick vampires.
  • “The Transformation of J.H. O’Donnell” gets into how Dr. O’Donnell went, well, bonkers.
  • And finally we’ve got “B.P.R.D.: Hell on Earth: The Long Death”, which sees John Arcudi return to the series.
  • In short, it looks like a great year for Hellboy fans. Check out the full interview over at io9.
