The Island Preview

Dark Horse has posted a preview for the two part Mignola Hellboy mini-series entitled The Island:

After more than two years at the bottom of the sea, Hellboy washes up on an island full of sunken ships where he is tempted by singing dead men and stupidly ignores good advice from an ancient enemy. This tale of gods and monsters offers the first revelations about one (or more) of the great secrets of Hellboy’s world.

Award-winning creator Mike Mignola presents the long-awaited sequel to 2001′s The Third Wish, and the first Hellboy series since the character was pushed into the mainstream by 2004′s hit film.

Also, here is an interesting excerpt from the Dark Horse Press Release:

“Once on the island, Hellboy has a couple drinks and learns a whole lot of stuff he never wanted to know…about himself,” commented writer/artist Mike Mignola. “In this miniseries I decided to tell a lot of stuff I never thought I was going to tell.”

Hellboy editor Scott Allie remarked, “The Island not only reveals things about Hellboy and his world that readers have been asking about for years, but it shows Mike at his most inventive. He’s still experimenting with the art form, still finding new ways to tell a story. The Island’s unlike anything he’s ever done.”

Sweet!! Check out the picture below:
