New Hellboy Graphic Novel Co-Written by Mignola Coming in 2017

It's been six years since we got a proper "Hellboy" graphic novel, but the spell will be broken on May 2, 2017, when Dark Horse Comics publishes "Hellboy: Into the Silent Sea."

Co-written by creator Mike Mignola with co-writer and artist Gary Gianni and colors by Dave Stewart, "Into the Silent Sea" will follow the events of the 2005 story arc, "The Island." In this latest paranormal tale, Big Red is abducted by a ghost ship and enlisted to help defeat an elusive sea monster.

"[T]he Hollywood hyperbole would describe it as Hellboy's greatest adventure," Gianni said in a press release. "Yes... it's Hellboy as you've never seen him before, laughing, loving and battling his way across the stormy seas! You'll be thrilled as he faces cosmic forces terrorizing a haunted shipped manned by a desperate crew!"

In addition to the announcement, Dark Horse has also released the first two pages of black-and-white art by Gianni. Check them both out below:

First debuting in 1993, Hellboy arrived at Dark Horse as a cantankerous but well-meaning demon who signs up with the international Bureau for Paranormal Research and Development to combat evil forces throughout the world. Since then he's seen two film adaptations, two animated features, two video games, and a number of storylines across his own series and the long-running "B.P.R.D." "Hellboy in Hell," written and drawn by Mignola, recently wrapped up its story arc, so fans should have plenty to tide them over until the big guy's next adventure.
