Check out a preview of the original graphic novel, coming next spring from Dark Horse.
Next spring a third Hellboy original graphic novel will arrive from Mike Mignola, Gary Gianni and Dave Stewart. Titled Hellboy: Into the Silent Sea, the OGN follows up on 2002’s “The Island” as we learn what happened next to our brave hero.
“The biblical Jonah was vomited up by a whale, but Hellboy might not be as lucky,” Gianni said in a press release. “A superstitious crew and a figure in black will make sure there’s no escaping the silent sea.” Taken captive by the phantom crew that plans to sell him to the circus, Hellboy is dragged along by a captain who will stop at nothing in pursuit of a powerful sea creature.
In the spirit of Halloween, Dark Horse has provided a preview of the upcoming OGN:

Check out a preview and the trailer for the upcoming graphic novel from Nobrow Press.
You can count on Nobrow Press to bring out a lot of interesting and cool comics and graphic novels, and their fall/winter slate, which I detailed back in June, is no exception. One of the projects that jumped out at me back back in June when I was putting that post together was SP4RX.
Wren McDonald‘s science fiction/social commentary/political thriller is about a hacker in a dystopian future who discovers a big secret about a cybernetic implants program being run by Structus Industries. McDonald’s artwork is the big draw for me here; it has a dynamic quality with huge amounts of detail packed into it, where you want to examine every panel further just to see what you missed.

Paul Buhle and Noah Van Sciver explore the historical John Chapman, better known as Johnny Appleseed, in a new graphic novel due out this fall.
The popular image of Johnny Appleseed is a sort of crazy guy who promoted healthy eating by planting apple trees and went around with a pot on his head. But there’s a lot more to him than that, and this fall (just in time for apple season!), Alternative Press will be publishing Paul Buhle and Noah Van Sciver’s Johnny Appleseed.

I’m a big fan of Valiant’s Faith and Archer & Armstrong titles at the moment, so I’m pretty excited to see that November brings the return of Harbinger in Harbinger Renegades by A&A writer Rafer Roberts and artist Darick Robertson.
Roberts (with artist David Lafuente) has told some really fun A&A stories thus far, and now he’s teaming up with the artist of such classics as Transmetropolitan and The Boys. I’ve missed seeing his art on a regular basis, so November can’t get here soon enough. It’s part of the bigger “Future of Valiant” wave of titles, which also included last month’s launch of a Faith ongoing series, plus the upcoming Generation Zero, Britannia, Bloodshot U.S.A. and Savage.
