    OK, that’s it for solicitations. On to the news!

    • If you’re familiar with the work of Gary Gianni, then you’re going to be excited about this, and if you aren’t familiar, then you are in for a treat. Next May, “Hellboy: Into the Silent Sea” comes out. Like “Hellboy: The Midnight Circus” and “Hellboy: House of the Living Dead” before it, this book will be released as a hardcover graphic novel. Illustrated by Gary Gianni (“The MonsterMen”) and set shortly after 2005’s “Hellboy: The Island,” this maritime adventure looks truly incredible. You can read all about it here. (I knew this image was teasing something!)

    Chris Roberson spoke to The Beat about the upcoming “Witchfinder: City of the Dead” and “Rise of the Black Flame” miniseries. There’s also a few preview pages for those craving an early look.

    • “B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth” and “Witchfinder” artist Tyler Crook is doing commissions.

    Loot Crate’s August theme is anti-heroes and there’s something in there to do with Hellboy. I’ve no idea what, of course.
