Welcome to Mignolaversity, Multiversity Comics’ dedicated column for all things Mike Mignola. We’ve got just the one issue this month, but there’s also a bunch of collections coming. As always, fantastic covers await. And thanks to Dark Horse for sending these our way.


HELLBOY IN LOVE #3 (of 5)
SHADOW THEATER – PART 1 (of 2)

Written by Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden
Illustrated by Matt Smith
Colored by Chris O’Halloran
Lettered by Clem Robins

On sale February 22, 2023
Full color, 32 pages
$3.99
Miniseries

Sparks fly when Hellboy and Anastasia take a surprise trip to Turkey. Anastasia’s former professor has unearthed the birthplace of Turkish shadow puppetry, but it seems there is more lurking in the shadows than he bargained for. Facing demonic presences is nothing new to Hellboy, but doing it alongside Anastasia is a new challenge!

Join creator Mike Mignola and cowriter Christopher Golden for another story of occult adventure and unlikely romance, with art by Matt Smith, featuring the colors of Chris O’Halloran.

Mark Tweedale: Yes, “Hellboy in Love” is back. I must say, I’m completely geeking out over the covers on this series. The heart motif combined with horror imagery is just fantastic. This series won me over pretty much immediately with the first issue, so obviously I am excited for more. It’s simply a really strong team—Christopher Golden and Matt Smith seem to play off of each other well, Chris O’Halloran always takes it to the next level with his colors, and Clem Robins adds another dimension to the dialogue with his lettering.

FRANKENSTEIN: NEW WORLD
—HARDCOVER COLLECTION—

Written by Mike Mignola, Thomas Sniegoski, and Christopher Golden
Illustrated by Peter Bergting
Colored by Michelle Madsen
Lettered by Clem Robins

On sale April 12, 2023
Full color, 112 pages
$24.99
Hardcover, 7″ x 10″

Safely tucked away inside the hollow earth where humanity survived after Ragna Rok, precocious young Lilja receives visions of a new darkness taking root on the surface. Defying her elders, Lilja awakens the timeless oracle―once known as Frankenstein―to investigate the warnings and, perhaps, even explore the new world above.

Frankenstein: New World, from Mike Mignola, Thomas Sniegoski, Christopher Golden, artist Peter Bergting, and colorist Michelle Madsen, explores a new chapter in the world of Hellboy! Collects the four-issue miniseries.

Mark: Damn, Peter Bergting’s cover for “Frankenstein: New World” looks great. It makes a very convincing argument to also pick up The Art of Peter Bergting when it comes out in March.

ABE SAPIEN: DARK AND TERRIBLE – VOLUME 2
—PAPERBACK OMNIBUS EDITION—

Written by Mike Mignola and Scott Allie
Illustrated by Max Fiumara, Sebastián Fiumara, and Tyler Crook
Colored by Dave Stewart
Lettered by Clem Robins

On sale April 12, 2023
Full color, 456 pages
$29.99
Paperback, 7″ x 10″

On the run at the end of the world, Abe seeks the truth about his own connection to the plague of monsters threatening to wipe out mankind. But is Abe’s real goal to uncover the truth, or to run from it? Also seeking answers is a necromancer whose deal with the Devil was forfeited when Hell collapsed in Hellboy in Hell.

Collected in paperback for the first time, revisit Abe Sapien’s adventures above and below the waves with stories from Mike Mignola and others, brought to life by the sublime art of Max and Sebastián Fiumara. Collects Abe Sapien volumes 6–8.

Mark: A paperback reprint of 2018 omnibus. Man, seeing this cover really makes me wish for more Max and Sebastián Fiumara–drawn stories.

B.P.R.D.VOLUME 5
—PAPERBACK OMNIBUS EDITION—

Continued below

Written by Mike Mignola and John Arcudi
Illustrated by Guy Davis, Tyler Crook, and Duncan Fegredo
Colored by Dave Stewart
Lettered by Clem Robins

On sale April 19, 2023
Full color, 448 pages
$29.99
Paperback, 7″ x 10″

The plague of frogs has ended, but earth will never be the same. The fractured B.P.R.D. struggles to battle dangerous monsters and humans alike, from a trailer-park cult to a Russian town ravaged by a zombie-like virus.

Follow the struggles of the best―and maybe last―paranormal investigators the world has to offer, with stories by Mike Mignola and John Arcudi and art by Guy Davis, Tyler Crook, and Duncan Fegredo. This latest volume of the B.P.R.D. Omnibus collection contains B.P.R.D.: Hell on Earth Volume 1.

Mark: Another reprint, though this time with a retitling and a brand new cover to boot. And it is always nice to see a new Mignola cover. Actually, I’ve seen a little of what’s coming ahead—more gorgeous and haunting covers from Mignola. You’re gonna love ’em.
