Celebrate Halloween Right With Three Mignolaverse Cover Debuts

Few comic creators perpetuate a year-round vibe of spookiness quite like Mike Mignola, the legendary creator of Hellboy and its various spinoffs, as well as standalone stories like Baltimore and Joe Golem. With that spirit in mind, what better way to kick off Halloween than with a triple-decker debut of upcoming covers from the “Mignolaverse,” the affectionate nickname given by fans to Mignola’s sprawling comic empire. While Mignola himself didn’t illustrate any of these horror-tinged beauties, Dave Palumbo, Tonci Zonjic and Laurence Campbell all uphold the high standards set by the master himself. Take an exclusive first peek at the Dark Horse Comics’ covers and solicits for Joe Golem: Occult Detective Vol. 3, Crimson Lotus Vol. 1 and B.P.R.D.: The Devil You Know Vol. 3 below, and be sure to check out our chat between Mignola and Geof Darrow if you somehow missed it last week.
