Collects Volumes 1-3, six novellas in all, 2009-2115. Highly Recommended. By Mike Mignola, John Arcudi et al. Art by Ben Stenbeck, John Severin, Tyler Crook and Patric Reynolds. I'm so pleased to see this. I've become a fan of this Hellboy spin-off series, but I missed the early tales collected here. One is a long, superbly drawn story by John Severin, who passed away in 2012. When the man called the Witchfinder becomes an agent of the Queen, he is led from the sparkling echelons of Victorian London to its dark underbelly, through the American West, and to explore the mysteries of Unland! Throughout his adventures, he'll face occult conspiracies, rampaging monsters, and London's most infamous secret society: the Heliopic Brotherhood of Ra! Bonus: 42 pages of prelim drawings, characters studies and much more.

I'm so pleased to see this. I've become a fan of this Hellboy spin-off series, but I missed the early tales collected here. One is a long, superbly drawn story by John Severin, who passed away in 2012. When the man called the Witchfinder becomes an agent of the Queen, he is led from the sparkling echelons of Victorian London to its dark underbelly, through the American West, and to explore the mysteries of Unland! Throughout his adventures, he'll face occult conspiracies, rampaging monsters, and London's most infamous secret society: the Heliopic Brotherhood of Ra! Bonus: 42 pages of prelim drawings, characters studies and much more.

Witchfinder is all about Sir Edward Grey, the Victorian monster killer that's kind of a pre-Hellboy good guy. Mignola states that "Next to Hellboy, Ed Grey is probably my favorite of the "Hellboy Universe" characters. Since reading Dracula way back when, I've loved Victorian supernatural literature..."

Grey first appeared in the Hellboy 2nd mini-series, Wake the Devil, and the beginning of the Abe Sapien miniseries, The Drowning, brought him back. Then Michael gave him his own book, beginning with artwork by Ben Stenbeck. That is where this volume begins. And it's a big, thick volume that should be great fun to read.

Introduction by Mike Mignola.
