FALCONSPEARE DELIVERS MORE HORROR, HUMOR, AND OFF-KILTER CHARM THIS FALL

The mix of Victorian-style mystery, horror, humor, and off-kilter charm that began in Mr. Higgins Comes Home and continued in Our Encounters With Evil: Adventures of Professor J.T. Meinhardt and his Assistant Mr. Knox, is back in Falconspeare. Dark Horse Comics will publish a graphic novel of the next adventures of Professor J.T. Meinhard, Mr. Knox, and Ms. Mary Van Sloan from writer / artist Warwick Johnson-Cadwell and letterer Clem Robins.

Created by Mike Mignola and Johnson-Cadwell, these characters are not your typical monster hunters. They've slayed spooks and investigated the uncanny before, but now they're ready to find out what happened to their friend and vampire slayer James Falconspeare.

“Evil lurks among dark shadows and in many forms. The vampire, the werewolf, monsters of all kinds,” said Johnson-Cadwell. “We need a particular kind of hero to thwart these evils, and Professor J.T. Meinhardt, Mr. Knox, and Ms. Mary Van Sloan are just those heroes. A cryptic correspondence sets them on a mysterious path which will lead them to diabolic danger and grim reality where evil may lie. Diabolic evil is revealed in grim reality, and an ultimate sacrifice is demanded. Their encounters with evil continue.”
 
Mr. Higgins Comes Home was a silly little story that basically wrote itself, inspired by old movies both Warwick and I love,” said Mignola. “I certainly didn’t imagine it would lead to other things, but seeing Warwick take those couple of characters from the original and create a whole world around them has been a real joy. I hope he’s having as much fun making these books as he appears to, because (now that I can just enjoy them as reader) I never want him to stop.”

Falconspeare features a cover by Mignola and colorist Dave Stewart. It is not tied to the Hellboy Universe or the Outerverse. It's an entirely stand-alone story. Look for it at your local comic shop on September 29th, 2021 and in bookstores and Amazon on October 12th, 2021.
