Hellboy: The Silver Lantern Club Miniseries Announced by Dark Horse

No Comments

Hellboy is coming back for a new miniseries, just in time for Halloween. As announced by Bloody Disgusting, Dark Horse Comics has announced Hellboy: The Silver Lantern Club. This all-new 5-issue comic book series. Mike Mignola, who created the character, is working on the book with an al-star creative team. 


The series comes from Mignola and iZombie co-creator Chris Roberson. It also features art by Christopher Mitten and Ben Stenbeck, with colors by Michelle Madsen. Each issue focuses on a different Victorian occult investigator who battled evil before Hellboy was on the scene. The book follows Hellboy and Trevor Bruttenholm as they hear a new occult adventure from the Silver Lantern Club’s history. 


Here is the logline for Hellboy: The Silver Lantern Club #1. 


“Hellboy learns about the mysteries of an exorcism gone wrong and more when his occult investigator relative reveals secretive and perilous adventures of one of the Hellboy Universe’s most mysterious societies. Silver Lantern Club member Simon Bruttenholm relates a tale from the dawn of radio, in which Sir Edward Grey and Sarah Jewel go toe to toe with . . . technology?”


The debut issue will be a full-colored 32-page comic. Mignola, Mitten, and award-winning colorist Dave Stewart provide the cover for the debut issue. Per the publisher, the book will answer the question, “Who stood against the forces of darkness in the days long before Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.?”


Over the years readers have gotten to know a few of the people who investigated the occult and supernatural long before Hellboy and the B.P.R.D., like the Witchfinder himself Sir Edward Grey and the globetrotting Sarah Jewell,” Roberson said. “But Sir Edward and Sarah were just two members of the Silver Lantern Club, a group of occult investigators who met regularly in a London tavern to swap stories over drinks. In Hellboy: The Silver Lantern Club Hellboy and Professor Bruttenholm take a break from an ongoing investigation to meet up with the professor’s Uncle Simon at that same tavern, who was a member of the club himself, to hear stories of the glory days.”


Hellboy is one of the biggest comic book characters around not hailing from Marvel or DC. The character has been the subject of three live-action movies. Ron Perlman starred in the first two. David Harbour starred in the 2019 reboot. Unfortunately, it was widely panned by critics and bombed at the box office. Harbour managed to bounce back and is currently starring in Black Widow. 


Hellboy: The Silver Lantern Club #1 hits shelves on October 27.
