    Default New omnibus ?

    When is the next omnibus - after 1952-1954 ?
    (I know about the Withfinder Vol. 2 - planned for november).

    The next omnibus would have been a Frankenstein one collecting Frankenstein Underground, Frankenstein Undone, and Frankenstein Unholy, but since the latter two have been cancelled, I've no idea what's happening with it anymore. Perhaps we'll get more Frankenstein someday, but it won't be anytime soon.

    There's going to be a Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.: 1955–1957, but I doubt we'll get that until at least 2023. However, a third Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. omnibus should come relatively quickly after it.

    I don’t think I’ve even seen the Unholy title before. They could’ve called it the Frank-un-stein Omnibus

    I was surprised that Secret Histories wasn't released as a vol. 1 since there's still Rise of the Black Flame, Crimson Lotus, and Koschei at least, to say nothing of Sarah Jewell.

    But I was also surprised that Voice of the Dragon wasn't put in an omnibus with Rise of the Black Flame, so what do I know?

    The Secret Histories is the volume title. Hellboy Universe is the series title. There will (eventually) be more Hellboy Universe omnibuses, each with a unique title.

    Koshchei may still get a sequel series and thus its own omnibus. The Sarah Jewell Mysteries is a series, so expect more stories and an eventual omnibus. Young Hellboy will likely get its own omnibus too someday. Which leaves just Rise of the Black Flame and Crimson Lotus... not quite enough for another Hellboy Universe omnibus just yet. That said, I would not be surprised if we get a Yad Tovich one-shot miniseries in the future. Even then, I guess there's a chance Rise of the Black Flame will be collected as part of The Sarah Jewell Mysteries.

    Laurence Campbell will soon be selling the original of a variant cover he did for Frankenstein Unholy. He mentioned the series had been cancelled when he was showing the art.

    That makes sense. A Tovich mini would be most excellent, too. Lord, I hope they eventually can figure out a way to put the rest of the planned Frankenstein stories out there. Such good comics.

    Has anyone ever talked about Crimson Lotus continuing in any form? It felt like that was a very intentional release moving forward at the time, but it hasn't (to my awareness, anyway) done much to connect itself to the greater universe so far.

    I wish. I really enjoyed those characters and I want to see more of China and Japan in the 1930s.
