    And now, the news…

    Christopher Golden talks to Bleeding Cool about next month’s Joe Golem, Occult Detective: The Rat Catcher #1. There’s also some preview pages.

    — Speaking of previews, Dark Horse Digital has released a Mike Mignola sampler. It has previews of Hellboy in Hell: The Hounds of Pluto, BPRD Hell on Earth: End of Days, Witchfinder: The Mysteries of Unland, Frankenstein Underground, Baltimore: The Cult of the Red King, and Joe Golem, Occult Detective: The Rat Catcher. (I also recommend checking out their 2015 Horror Sampler.)

    — Mike and Christine Mignola have an interview with the Comic Bug on YouTube. I haven’t had a chance to watch it yet. It should be interesting.

    — In case you missed it, there was a new Hell Notes earlier this month talking about the Heliopic Brotherhood of Ra.

    — And finally, check out this Hellboy comission by Ben Stenbeck. You’ll be able to see more of his work in two week’s time when the first issue of Hellboy and the BPRD: 1953 comes out.
