In 2017, one of the strangest and most unexpected mysteries of the Hellboy world will be revealed in an all new comic book series from Dark Horse Comics.

In The Visitor: How and Why He Stayed, legendary Hellboy creator Mike Mignola, iZombie co-creator Chris Roberson and Jack Staff creator Paul Grist will spotlight mysterious aliens and probe into a pivotal moment in Hellboy’s past for a surprising tale that harkens back to the character’s first ever appearance. This 5 issue comic book series will be teased in a story in the forthcoming Hellboy: Winter Special 2017 on January 25th, before the first issue of The Visitor: How and Why He Stayed debuts on February 22, 2017

“In Hellboy: Seed of Destruction, readers were given a brief glimpse of a crew of strange looking aliens monitoring the supernatural doings on Earth from way out in space. We later learned that one of those aliens had been sent to Earth to kill him in 1944, but chose to spare him at the last moment,” said Chris Roberson. “In The Visitor, we explore who those aliens are, why that assassin was sent to kill Hellboy, and just what he was doing in all of the years in between.”

Joining co-writers Mignola and Roberson, and colorist Bill Crabtree, is cartoonist Paul Grist who will be making his Mignolaverse debut. Dark Horse Comics will publish the first issue of The Visitor: How and Why He Stayed, the most mysterious Hellboy spinoff yet, on February 22, 2017.
