A follow-up to The Dark Horse Book of Hauntings, Dark Horse will release The Book of the Dead on May 25, 2005. Here is what The Anime News Network had to say:
Mike Mignola presents a Hellboy yarn combining Shakespeare and grave robbing in this follow-up to Dark Horse?s Eisner-nominated Book of Hauntings and Book of Witchcraft. Also returning this volume are Jill Thompson, who won a 2004 Eisner for her painted work in Hauntings, and her collaborator Evan Dorkin, with another occult canine adventure. New additions for this volume include Goon creator Eric Powell, celebrated B.P.R.D. artist Guy Davis, and the artist who spent the last twenty years making superhero comics more scary?Kelley Jones. Cover artist Gary Gianni also returns, mixing prose with comics, with a rare tale by the man ultimately responsible for Dark Horse?s biggest hit in years?Conan creator Robert E. Howard.
