Dark Horse Announce Exclusive B.P.R.D. Comic for Emerald City Comicon!


Just as I am debating pulling out of going to ECCC, for a variety of personal reasons (mostly crazy), Dark Horse have to go and announce  that they are doing an exclusive B.P.R.D. comic, especially for the show!!! Not only that, but the entire creative team will be there! B.P.R.D. is my favourite comic, and I would kill to get this signed by everyone!

February 23, 2010, MILWAUKIE, OR–As Abe Sapien, Johann Kraus, Liz Sherman and the rest of the Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense find themselves dealing with dreadful events across the globe in the pages of B.P.R.D. Hell On Earth that they—and their fans—could not have foreseen only a year ago, a rare and surprising event is set to occur in Seattle at this year’s Emerald City Comicon.  An opportunity second to none, fans will have the chance to hear all about the book Comics Alliance called “one of the best books on the stands” from Mike Mignola, John Arcudi, Guy Davis, Dave Stewart and editor Scott Allie—the entire B.P.R.D. team—as well as have a chance to receive an exclusive, black and white B.P.R.D. Hell On Earth comic.

Featuring a full-color cover by Guy Davis with color art from Dave Stewart with the B.P.R.D. fighting a monster terrorizing the Seattle skyline, this unique comic will contain a brand new B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth story that’s a must-have for fans and collectors alike. Available for free at the Dark Horse booth (#702) while supplies last, attendees can swing by to grab their copy and check-in at the B.P.R.D. Recruiting Station to sign up for the B.P.R.D. newsletter, enter a raffle for B.P.R.D. prizes and more!

“This is something really unique in that the story takes place during the current B.P.R.D. Hell On Earth storyline and fits seamlessly in between issues, yet is totally centered around Seattle,” Emerald City Comicon Director, Jim Demonakos said. “I’m thrilled to be able to collaborate with Scott Allie and Dark Horse to bring this comic to reality. With Scott, Mike Mignola, John Arcudi, Guy Davis and Dave Stewart all being guests, it was amazing to have the entire B.P.R.D. crew create a story that was both Seattle-centric and in-continuity, and I think the fans at ECCC are going to love it.”

Fans should also make an effort to be at Saturday’s B.P.R.D. panel in Room 4C3-4, where they’ll be no shortage of exciting news about the series. The panel will also be a singular opportunity to hear the full creative force behind B.P.R.D. Hell On Earth discuss the book, chat with each other and field questions from fans.
