Hellboy Goes To Hell

He’s undertaken many grand adventures over his nearly 20-year career, but this December our favorite paranormal crime-fighter is going south of the border. Way south. As Dark Horse Comics publicist Aub Driver reveals: “After saving the world in The Storm and the Fury, but sacrificing himself and Great Britain, Hellboy is dead, cast into Hell, where he finds many familiar faces, and a throne that awaits him!” Hey, it’s actually where he hails from, so it should be an interesting trip home.

Creator/writer Mike Mignola recently told IO9 about his vision of Hell: “The fast and easy answer is that Hell is made of everything that I’ve wanted to draw, forever. It’s certainly not all pits of fire — there is a big pit of fire — and there will be periodically other things on fire, I’m sure. But it’s not a one-dimensional, cartoon, devils-poking-guys-with-pitchforks kind of Hell. I’m debating drawing a map of my Hell. It has specific locations and geography, but it’s an open-ended enough world. It’s designed to be a place where I can set all the stories I’d like to do from now on.”

The first issue of Hellboy In Hell streets December 5th. It’ll be interesting if our big red guy becomes the new big red guy down there.
