MICHAEL AVON OEMING, MILES GUNTER; with MIKE MIGNOLA On sale May 14, FC, 32pg, (one-shot), $2.99 Miles Gunter and Michael Avon Oeming, creators of Bastard Samurai, kick off a series of new adventures featuring Mike Mignola’s bizarre team of investigators. Something’s wrong with the water in Venice; something so unusual that the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense came to investigate. Exploding statues of a local goddess lead them to the haunted mansion of an ancient vampire, and a grand marquis of Hell. Mike Mignola lends a hand with the writing on this action-packed and eerie one- shot, with a cover by Powers artist Michael Avon Oeming. The perfect companion to our bimonthly Hellboy: Weird Tales series, future issues of B.P.R.D. feature Brian Augustyn (Gotham by Gaslight, Crimson), Guy Davis (Marquis, Nevermen), Geoff Johns & Scott Kolins (The Flash), Joe Harris (screenwriter of Darkness Falls), and Adam Pollina (Big Daddy Danger).
