New image series from Kyle Starks to feature hobos, magic, punching and the Literal Devil.
Kyle Starks, creator of the high-octane books Sexcastle, The Legend of Ricky Thunder and Kill Them All, has a new book coming from Image Comics in April — Rock Candy Mountain. Image describes it as an action comedy, filled with “epic stakes, magic, friendships, trains, punching, kicking, joking, a ton of hobo nonsense, and the Literal Devil. Yeah. The Literal Devil.”

Adam P. Knave, D.J. Kirkbride and Nickolas Brokenshire update Arthurian legend in a new comic coming from Dark Horse next March.
The team behind the MonkeyBrain/IDW series Amelia Cole is putting the band back together for a new series that ties into the legend of King Arthur.
Dark Horse Comics announced today The Once and Future Queen, a five-issue miniseries by Adam P. Knave, D.J. Kirkbride and Nickolas Brokenshire, along with letterer Frank Cvetkovic. Per the release, a teen named Rani Arturus travels to the UK to compete in a chess championship, where she finds the sword Excalibur and meets a “surprisingly modern” Merlin.
The five-issue miniseries will cast a light on a long-brewing Hellboy mystery.
Hellboy’s universe is populated by all sorts of strange, magical characters drawn from myths and legends around the world — but also, on a couple occasions, from out of this world. Fans of the characters over the years may have noticed — and wondered about — a group of aliens seen in Hellboy: Seed of Destruction and Hellboy: The Conqueror Worm, and come next year, they’ll get some answers.
Due out next February is The Visitor: How and Why He Stayed, a five-issue series by Mike Mignola and Chris Roberson, featuring art by Paul Grist. (Grist! Seeing his promo art in the trailer, available below, makes you wonder why he’s never worked in the Mignolaverse before. He’s a natural for it. Also, I sure miss Mudman and Jack Staff). The book will feature these mysterious aliens and will “probe into a pivotal moment in Hellboy’s past for a surprising tale that harkens back to the character’s first ever appearance.”
