13 Days Of Hellboy Concludes At Bleeding Cool With Frankenstein Underground – And Takes To Reddit

Posted by October 13, 2014 Comment

Since October 1st, Dark Horse have been taking to a host of comics media sites to bring readers “13 Days of Hellboy“, each day revealing exclusive images, whether covers, previews, or teasers featuring the Mignolaverse. Last, but certainly not least, the Hellboy train has arrived at Bleeding Cool.

Here we have the final Dark Horse teaser for Frankenstein Underground, the five issue miniseries coming in 2015 written by Mike Mignola, with covers by Mignola and interior art by Ben Stenbeck. As the title implies, it features the creature Frankenstein’s monster, who is poised to reveal some of the “secrets” of the Mignolaverse by a descent into the “underground”.

Would this really be Bleeding Cool without some speculation? Could it be that the monster has something to do with the manner by which Hellboy will finally get the hell out of hell? If not, the BPRD, at least, could certainly use some mysteries explained to deal with their recovery from hell on earth. We don’t really need to explain how exciting this series is going to be for Hellboy fans, but we will anyway. Frankenstein’s monster + Mike Mignola = the origins of horror excavated and writ large.

Here’s the final teaser for Frankenstein Underground that completes 13 Days of Hellboy:

And as an added bonus, we’ve also received a chaser reveal of the cover for the trade paperback collection of Hellboy & The BPRD:
