Dark Horse Comics has announced the February 2020 release of Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.: The Return of Effie Kolb, the sequel to Mike Mignola’s The Crooked Man.
In HELLBOY & THE B.P.R.D.: THE RETURN OF EFFIE KOLB, years after he banished the infamous backwoods demon known as the Crooked Man, Hellboy returns to Appalachia when a young psychic warns Tom Ferrell of looming danger. But the Crooked Man’s house is no longer empty, and threats both new and old simmer in the Virginia woods.
“Sometimes you create a character, they perform their function, and that’s it,” said series writer Mike Mignola in a press release from Dark Horse Comics. “Other times you finish with them and they just refuse to get back in their box. Tom Ferrell is one of those characters. Even as I was writing The Crooked Man I knew there was a whole lot more to that guy. And Effie Kolb… It turns out there are worse things you can do to a character than turn them into a horse.”
Joining Mignola is artist Zach Howard, colorist Dave Stewart, and letterer Clem Robbins.
Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.: The Return of Effie Kolb is a two-part thriller that arrives on February 19, 2020.
