Mr. Higgins Comes HomeThe creator of Hellboy and the artist of Helena Crash are collaborating on Mr. Higgins Comes Home

Mike Mignola credits this to a comment made by a mutual friend, saying that that set him and Warwick Johnson-Cadwell on the way to creating a new story. “Mr. Higgins Comes Home is my very obvious nod to any number of old Hammer Dracula films and my all-time favorite vampire film, Roman Polanski’s The Fearless Vampire Killers,” Mignola adds.

For his part, Johnson-Cadewell calls the tale “a rollicking vampire romp right in the Hammer vein” and adds that ” it’s a pleasure to be slapping that crimson goop they used for blood all over it.”

Just at the moment, all we have to look at is the cover which features bats, crumbling masonry, and of course a dash of blood-red, n good, solid vampire fashion.

In MR. HIGGINS COMES HOME, preparations begin at Castle Golga for the annual festival of the undead, as a pair of fearless vampire killers question a man hidden away in a monastery on the Baltic Sea. The mysterious Mr. Higgins wants nothing more than to avoid the scene of his wife’s death, and the truth about what happened to him in that castle. However, these heroic men, sworn to rid the world of the vampire scourge, inspire Higgins to venture out and to end the only suffering he really cares about–his own.

Mr. Higgins Comes Home comes to comic book stores on October 25th and to bookstores October 31.
