Today, Felicia Day's Geek & Sundry channel - along with Dark Horse Comics - premieres a brand new motion comic based on Mike Mignola's most recent Hellboy storyline, The Fury. And you should definitely go and watch it, particularly if you've never read the book before... But Mignola won't be there with you. As we found out in a spirited conversation with the creator, Mignola prefers to give his blessing on Hellboy products, and then leave them to their own devices. Read More...

The current run of Dark Horse Presents has a long way to go to match the epic, 157 issue original run of the title, or even the 36 issue run the comic had on MySpace. But if it keeps up the exciting quality of issues like February’s issue number eight, we should be in for another huge success.

Why are we picking out issue eight, in particular, when there’s been a few issues along the way we’ve neglected to talk about? Two reasons: Hellboy, and The Massive. And we’ll get to those in a second, but suffice to say those are far from the only reasons to pick up this week’s issue.

Let’s start with the Hellboy/BPRD story, which provides an emotional aftermath not just to the death of Hellboy in his own title, but also the recent BPRD: Russia mini-series, as the Bureau’s Kate grapples with several unfinished threads in her life. It also ties up a few plot threads, as Kate (and hence all of BPRD) finds out Hellboy is no longer among the living. It’s a beautiful, simple little story that’s a must read for fans of Mike Mignola’s universe. Short, elegiac, and extremely well illustrated by Duncan Fegredo, this may not be for the casual fan – but its nice to look at regardless.

The other main draw, of course, is the first part of The Massive, a new story by writer Brian Wood and artist Kristian Donaldson. Here, we get a covert team invading an oilrig to stop a hostage situation, only to encounter something much, much worse. And as tempting as it is to call this a “massive” success, or a “massive” failure, it plays more as a teaser of events to come. This is more of a prologue to the main story, rather than a full meal in and of itself, and that’s a little bit of a disappointment, particularly given the hype behind the tale. That said, it’s a vastly different story than most of Wood’s work (though closer to a DMZ than, say, a Northlanders), and the protagonist is intriguing enough in his brief appearance. I’m certainly going to read more, and I expect you’ll want to, as well. Read More...

Forget about the days when camp was just about canoeing and firesides. Trackers is teaming up with Dark Horse Comics to create B.P.R.D and Hellboy camps.

It’s available for ages 9-17 and will happen this July in Oregon. While of course this is just for fun, the site describes it like serious business: “Join the B.P.R.D! The Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense needs your help to defend humanity against various occult horrors and paranormal threats.”

If you sign up before February 22, you’ll get an early bird discount. Flexible payment plans are being offered for some families.

Camp goers will be able to learn and do the following: “Tactical training, survival in any environment, martial arts and self-defense specific to praeternatural entities, hand to hand weaponry (foam swords, bows and more), investigation and forensics, folklore & mythology, potion and charms 101, telepathy training, gadgets of the occult: EMF detectors, polarized lenses and other paranormal investigative gear, comparative analogy and physiology of monsters, construct your own quality foam swords and training weapons, meet the artists of the comic book that documents the adventures of the B.P.R.D., Bureau history and paranormal research.”

So some of it sounds like bonafide education and some of it sounds like geeky fun. Are they going to open a camp like this for grownups?
