Mike Mignola returns to Hell with Ben Stenbeck on ‘Koshchei in Hell’

‘Koshchei in Hell’ is an all-new 4-issue miniseries from Dark Horse Comics on sale in November.

Dark Horse Comics has announced a new Mike Mignola comic, Koshchei in Hell, with artist Ben Stenbeck and colorist Dave Stewart. If you’re a fan of Koshchei the Deathless–I certainly was–you know we’re in for a treat. The four-issue miniseries is set to start on November 30th.

“It’s always a pleasure working with Ben, as he can really do everything,” said Mignola. “And there’s just something about how he does things—something very natural and almost quiet—subtle—til it’s time to NOT be subtle. It just really works with the kind of stories I’m trying to tell. And Koshchei—I just love this guy. I’ve really put him through the wringer, but he keeps on going. And Hell—well, is it odd to say I love that place?”

So what’s Koshchei in Hell about?

Sent to kill Hellboy by the Baba Yaga in Hellboy: Darkness Calls, Koshchei the Deathless hinted at a long and tragic life before being enslaved to the Slavic witch. Now, in this new series, Koshchei is still in Hell content with his wine and his books—until an old associate arrives and brings Koshchei a critical task. An ancient and powerful foe is returning, and Koshchei must take up his sword to defend Pandemonium from destruction.

“Koshchei would love to just sit back and read books and drink wine in his socks,” said Stenbeck. “That’s the series Koshchei wants this to be. But that’s not what he’s getting. He has to leave the house. Then he’s going to run into a lot of familiar faces and meet some new ones, and they are pretty much all asking for a fight. Poor old Koshchei, it’s never easy.”

An ancient and powerful foe is returning, and Koshchei must take up his sword to defend Pandemonium from destruction.

“It’s always a pleasure working with Ben, as he can really do everything,” said Mignola. “And there’s just something about how he does things—something very natural and almost quiet—subtle—til it’s time to NOT be subtle.
