On the last day of Emerald City Comicon, Mike Mignola and I met for an early morning interview, and we spoke while vendors and guests set up their booths and wares. Eventually, a line formed in front of Mike's table--before the show even opened--but we still had time to cover the world-changing events that occurred in both Hellboy and B.P.R.D. in 2010. As Mike reveals below, though, 2010 has nothing on 2011 and the future of his universe is primed for a big state of flux.
Amazon.com: The B.P.R.D. panel this weekend was a shocker with two big announcements. The first was that Guy Davis is leaving the title. What does this mean for the series?
Mike Mignola: You know, we hate to lose him. Guy’s been on the book for something like eight years, punching it in almost on a monthly schedule, which nobody does anymore. Guy has done amazing stuff; he’s made that book his. We’re sad to see him go, but I certainly understand it. There were certainly no hard feelings or anything. It was like, “Guy, believe me, we certainly understand. It’s time. You want to go and do other stuff? That’s cool. You ever want to come back? We hope to see you again.”
