Mike Mignola, co-writer Tom Sniegoski, artist Craig Rousseau, colorist Dave Stewart, and letterer Clem Robins will once again dive into the adventures of a younger, inexperienced Hellboy in Young Hellboy: The Hidden Land.
The new four issue series begins in February 2021 and features Hellboy and Professor Bruttenholm on a strange island filled with monsters and even one of Hellboy’s heroes.
Mignola recounts the genesis of the new series began at a comic convention in Boston, when he brought up the idea of a “…maybe slightly insane globetrotting adventures of a very young Hellboy…” to fellow writer Sniegoski.
Sniegoski outlined the story even further, saying that the events in The Hidden Land “…take place in May of 1947, before the events depicted in Hellboy and the Midnight Circus. Lighter in tone, Young Hellboy: The Hidden Land is an exhilarating adventure that embraces the thrills and chills of the pulp adventure stories of the 1930s. Mysterious islands, vampire queens, dinosaurs, giant ape gods, and a new and exciting addition to the Hellboy Universe—Scarlett Santiago, the Sky Devil. I’ve always been fascinated by the glimpses into Hellboy’s childhood that Mike has given us, and to be asked to contribute to these stories, along with Mike, Craig, and Dave, is a dream come true.”
Young Hellboy: The Hidden Land will be available for purchase at finer comic shops everywhere on February 17, 2021.
