    It’s funny, for a guy that died all the way back in the very first issue of “Hellboy: Seed of Destruction” back in 1994, Professor Trevor Bruttenholm sure has grown into a big character in the Hellboy Universe. He showed up in a few flashbacks over the years, then took center stage for “B.P.R.D.: 1946–1948,” and will continue to be a major part of “Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.” as in goes into the 1956 arc. Still, twenty-four years after his debut, we still don’t know much about him. Well, until “Rasputin: The Voice of the Dragon” came along, that is. This miniseries from writers Mike Mignola and Chris Roberson, and artist Christopher Mitten, delves deep into the character at a time when he was still young and with much to learn ahead of him. The final issue comes out Wednesday, March 7, bringing the miniseries to a close, but given how much fun I’ve had with it, I’m hoping there’s another “Rasputin” miniseries in the works… In the meantime, check out our exclusive first look below.

    Bruttenholm and Sandhu reach the site of the Nazis’ occult activity, where the shadowy “Master” himself is about to complete his occult experiment.

    Thanks to Dark Horse Comics for the preview and make sure to pick up the issue on Wednesday!
