FIRST LOOK: “Hellboy,” “Lobster Johnson,” “B.P.R.D.” Covers

Dark Horse has provided CBR with an exclusive First Look at Mike Mignola’s cover for “Hellboy” Volume 5, Dave Johnson’s cover for “Lobster Johnson” #5 and both Mike Mignola and Max Fiumara’s covers for “B.P.R.D.: Hell On Earth: The Transformation of J.H O’Donnell.”

In 2011, “B.P.R.D.: Hell on Earth: The Transformation of J.H O’Donnell” artist Max Fiumara spoke with CBR about his upcoming one-shot featuring B.P.R.D.’s expert on the powerful ancient forces intent on ending the age of man. “Throughout the issues of ‘B.P.R.D.’ we’ve been seeing that this guy is not only a genius but also a bit crazy, it’s been a mystery so far, and here we get to tell the story of the origin of his madness,” Fiumara told CBR News. “Hellboy, of course, plays a part in the story, and this means trouble.  It’s a pretty dark story.”

Check out the covers and solicits below and stay tuned to CBR News for more on “Hellboy” and “B.P.R.D.” in 2012.
