    Default Hellboy Winter Special 2017 and Lobster Johnson: Garden of Bones

    Hellboy Winter Special 2017

    Writers: Mike Mignola, Scott Allie, Paul Grist
    Artists: Christopher Mitten, Sebastián Fiumara, Dave Stewart, Bill Crabtree
    Publisher: Dark Horse
    Three weird tales show the world of Hellboy through the years, with Edward Grey appearing alongside Sarah Jewell, hero of the recent Rise of the Black Flame series in 1890s London. In 1980s New England, Hellboy, Abe Sapien, and Liz Sherman set out on a simple search for some missing kids and encounter a tormented spirit seeking to share its pain.

    And Paul Grist (Kane, Jack Staff) joins the team for a 1950s Hellboy story providing a glimpse of the next new title to debut in the Mignolaverse.

    Writers: Mike Mignola, John Arcudi
    Artists: Stephen Green, Dave Stewart, Tonci Zonjic

    When an undead hit man goes after the NYPD, the Lobster steps in to figure out if it’s a zombie—or something worse.

    Paul Grist said the story is set in the 60's ( unless he made a huge mistake reading the script).

    I'm guessing Green's doing the interior and Zonjic's just on the cover?

    Yeah. Tonci Zonjic always does the covers for the LoJo guest artists unless it's Kevin Nowlan.

    After being really busy for a couple months, I finally had a chance to catch up on a bunch of Hellboy comics and news. Great to see a new LoJo announced, and The Visitor looks amazing!

    Did anyone read Garden of Bones? I thought it was a fun little LoJo story featuring Harry McTell.

    (Diamond screwed up on getting comics to the store I go to for Wednesday, and I couldn't head down there today.)

    Finally got it and read it.

    It was an entertaining one-and-done story, though I'm not sure how good it might be if this was a person's first encounter with the series.

    Good one shot.I don't know if it was a combination os the setting and the art, but has a Will Eisner feel for me.

    So... this was alright. Just alright.

    I liked all the art, and I liked the ideas behind the stories, and I liked the follow up of Vic. A nice easter egg, of sorts.

    However, I am getting worried about the writing in the Mignolaverse. Roberson has yet to really impress me, and that continues here, unfortunately. I haven't read Abe, but I also haven't heard much good about Allie's writing in the series. Fiumara did a beautiful job, which sadly only made the writing feel even worse.

    Ultimately it was a fine one shot anthology, but "fine" isn't a word I'm used to using when talking about the Mignolaverse. A little disheartening.
