Legendary Hellboy creator Mike Mignola is back with a new one-shot from Dark Horse entitled “Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.: Long Night at Goloski Station.” Releasing this October, Mignola is teaming up with illustrator Matt Smith and colorist Dave Stewart on a tale that finds Hellboy at a quiet Russian train station that quickly becomes a demon-filled battle.
“A remote train station and two guys killing time waiting for something to happen, very different (I think) from any other ‘Hellboy’ story I’ve done,” said Mignola in a statement at the website Daily Dead. “While it’s set in Russia it was very much inspired by any number of old Westerns. And Matt Smith… I’ve loved his work since I discovered it all those years ago on his ‘Barbarian Lord’ comic.”
“I remember two things very clearly at the start of this book,” said Smith. “First was getting the initial message and wondering who was playing a joke on me, as it couldn’t actually be from the guy who inspired me to draw my own comics. Second was reading the script for the first time knowing I was getting to draw this particular story. It’s a great one.”
Hitting comic book stores on October 30th, “Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.: Long Night at Goloski Station” should make for the perfect companion to Halloween celebrations.
