In the world of Mike Mignola’s Hellboy, the world’s greatest paranormal investigator is dead and Hell was unleashed upon the Earth. For years, the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense fought desperately to keep the world from ending as an ending plague of monsters, death, and destruction changed planet Earth into a world of despair.
And yet somehow, the BPRD finally prevailed. The ancient Lovecraftian gods and monsters have been expelled, leading to the obvious question on everyone’s minds: “What’s next?” In B.P.R.D.: The Devil You Know, Liz Sherman and her team are braving some of the monster-infested ruins on a rescue mission while human society attempts to adjust to life after an averted apocalypse. However, the team’s best exorcist, Ashley Strode, has received an unsettling prophecy of things to come.
In CraveOnline’s exclusive preview for B.P.R.D.: The Devil You Know #2, Ashley seeks answers from a demon as another cult rises in the wake of the world changing events.
This issue was written by Mike Mignola and Scott Allie, with art by Laurence Campbell, colors by Dave Stewart, and a cover by Duncan Fegredo. Here’s the official description from Dark Horse.
“With the apocalypse narrowly averted, the cults that sprung up in response to the worldwide crisis are left with idle hands.”
B.P.R.D.: The Devil You Know # 2 will be released on Wednesday, August 30 in comic book stores everywhere.
