An unlikely romance blossoms in ‘Hellboy in Love’ kicking off October 12th

Hellboy has been assigned to protect a shipment of occult artifacts from a gang of thieving goblins.

Press Release

Dark Horse Comics has revealed a new Hellboy miniseries, and it’s got heart eyes and chocolates. Titled Hellboy in Love, the five-issue series is by Mike Mignola, Christopher Golden, Matt Smith, Chris O’Halloran, and Clem Robins. The first issue will be available in comic book shops on October 12th.

“It’s been twenty-five years since Dr. Anastasia Bransfield first appeared as Hellboy’s ex-girlfriend in my novel Hellboy: The Lost Army,” says Golden. “I’ve always thought one of the reasons Mike considered my three Hellboy novels as canon is because of that relationship. Over the years, we talked many times about telling the stories of their adventures together, and the day has finally come. It’s Romancing the Stone-style action, occult weirdness, and first love, with gorgeous Matt Smith art! We’re having so much fun!”

So what’s Hellboy in Love bout?

Hellboy has been assigned to protect a shipment of occult artifacts from a gang of thieving goblins. The artifacts are being transported by train to the British Museum by archaeologist Anastasia Bransfield, and she’s not going to let them go without a fight! Rather than stay behind, she teams up with Hellboy to chase the light-fingered fey through the British countryside and into . . . a local punk show?

‘‘It starts with a goblin train robbery in the English countryside. There’s also a punk show. These were the first words Christopher Golden told me about the story he and Mike put together, and that’s really all I needed to hear,” said Matt Smith. “How could I not be stoked to draw this thing? I’m very grateful to be back with the same creative team as Hellboy: The Bones of Giants.”
