While Hellboy may be over, the world of Hellboy continues in Rise of the Black Flame from Mike Mignola, Chris Roberson, Christopher Mitten and Dave Stewart.
Rise of the Black Flame is a five issue mini-series tells a dark horror story about an ancient, evil power. Young girls are going missing in the cities of Siam and the trail leads to the jungle hideout of the Cult of the Black Flame.
“There have been several villains in Hellboy’s world who’ve been called the Black Flame, and the striking visual of a skeleton burning with dark flames is pretty hard to beat,” said co-writer Chris Roberson. “In RISE OF THE BLACK FLAME, we reveal that before there was a man called the Black Flame, there was an ancient cult hidden deep in the jungles of Southeast Asia known by that name. We plumb the depths of cruelty and ruthlessness that groups of people are capable of reaching, and explore how this cult which reaches back to prehistoric times is connected to the most dangerous villain in the history of the Hellboy books.”
