Dark Horse Comics will be bringing back the flavor of the classic Hammer Dracula flicks in October when the company publishes Mr. Higgins Comes Home – a graphic novel from Hellboy’s Mike Mignola and Helena Crash artist Warwick Johnson-Cadwell.
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 will be in Comics stores on October 25th and bookstores on October 31st.
