Mike Mignola and Adam Hughes are teaming up again for a special one-shot Hellboy story this December. Titled Hellboy & the B.P.R.D.: The Seven Wives Club, the new series will feature Hellboy coming to the aid of a girl whose ghost hunt goes terribly wrong in Savannah Georgia.
This isn’t the first time Hughes and Mignola teamed up as they collaborated on the 2017 36-page holiday special Hellboy: Krampusnacht (read our review here). Considering how good their last collaboration was we’re in for a treat this December!

MILWAUKIE, Ore., (August 27, 2019) This December, the Eisner Award-winning creative team of HELLBOY: KRAMPUSNACHT is reuniting for an all-new one-shot, HELLBOY & THE B.P.R.D.: THE SEVEN WIVES CLUB. Written by legendary HELLBOY creator Mike Mignola and illustrated by acclaimed artist Adam Hughes, this ghostly yarn features Hellboy coming to the aid of a young girl whose ghost hunt in Savannah, GA goes terribly wrong. Things go from bad to worse, as they often do, when a visit to an abandoned medical school reveals sinister layers to a grisly long-ago murder.
“The Victorians used to read and tell ghost stories during the Christmas season,” said Mignola. “We might not be reading by candlelight these days, but I do like a good ghost story during the holiday season, especially when there are stolen cadavers, vengeful spirits, and art by Adam Hughes.”“I’m dead thrilled to be collaborating with Mike again and flabbergasted as always that anyone wants to work with me twice,” said Adam Hughes. “This one’s so spooky, I’m only drawing it during the daytime.”Adam Hughes will provide both the main cover and a variant cover, and Mike Mignola will also provide a variant cover. Dark Horse Comics will publish HELLBOY & THE B.P.R.D.: THE SEVEN WIVES CLUB one-shot on December 11, 2019.
