    And now, the news…

    — Mondo will be releasing a 1/6 scale baby Hellboy figure in the third quarter of this year, designed by Matthew Black, Joe Allard, and Mike Mignola. You can pre-order it here.

    In an interview with the Vulture, Mike Mignola reveal Hellboy in Hell would end at issue ten early this year. Mignola intends to spend his time away from the comic painting for a year. I hope he enjoys his time off. Of course, that’s a relative term as he’ll still be actively involved in the plotting of B.P.R.D., Hellboy and the B.P.R.D., Lobster Johnson, Witchfinder, Baltimore, Joe Golem, and other unannounced projects.

    — The Hellboy Winter Special comes out next month, featuring Tim Sale’s debut in the Hellboy Universe. 13th Dimension has a look at the inks of his pages for the short story Broken Vessels.

    — In case you missed it, I did a three-part interview with Mike Mignola talking about 2015 and 2016. It was a lot of fun. Check it out: Part 1Part 2Part 3.

    — And I also interviewed Christopher Golden to discuss Baltimore and Joe Golem. I must say, I’m very excited to read the upcoming Baltimore: Empty Graves.

    — Laurence Campbell’s been sharing his inks on Twitter. Check ’em out.

    Patric Reynolds has been sharing some of his desing work for Joe Golem.

    James Harren has been drawing Hellboy drinking with skeletons.

    And Duncan Fegredo shared his cover process for B.P.R.D. #142.
