Dark Horse to release Hellboy: Into the Silent Sea by Eisner Award-Winning Artist Gary Gianni, Hellboy creator Mike Mignola and Award-Winning Colorist Dave Stewart

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 

MILWAUKIE, Ore., (August 9, 2016) Next spring, Dark Horse Comics will publish an original graphic novel,  Hellboy: Into the Silent Sea, co-written by legendary Hellboy creator Mike Mignola, co-written and illustrated by Eisner Award-winning artist Gary Gianni and colored by award-winning colorist Dave Stewart. Following the events of the classic story “The Island,” Hellboy sets 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.

Gary Gianni has previously collaborated with iconic writers including George R. R. Martin, Harlan Ellison, Ray Bradbury and Michael Chabon and teamed up with Michael Kaluta to work on the classic pulp hero, The Shadow. Gianni is best known 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. Gianni will illustrate Hellboy: Into the Silent Sea, with colors by Dave Stewart; Mignola will provide a cover, with colors by Stewart.

“I imagine if Hellboy: Into the Silent Sea were a movie, the Hollywood hyperbole would describe it as Hellboy’s greatest adventure,” said Gary Gianni. “Yes… it’s Hellboy as you’ve never seen him before, laughing , loving and battling his way across the stormy seas! You’ll be thrilled as he faces cosmic forces terrorizing a haunted ship manned by a desperate crew! Be sure not to miss Hellboy: Into the Silent Sea, the biggest comic book event of the year!”

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.

Pre-order Hellboy: Into the Silent Sea on Amazon and Penguin Random House.

One thought on “New Hellboy Graphic Novel By Mignola, Gianni & Stewart Coming In 2017”

  1. I keep on reading quotes from Mike Mignola talking about how he is shutting down Hellboy comics (both past and present day stories) but he keeps churning them out. If I remember correctly he wanted the character to have a natural ending but he also wants to spend more time with his family. Maybe this is the last one? End of an era?
