The solicit info for BPRD: The Devil You Know #5 promised that old team members would reunite and the issue did not disappoint. The issue was co-written by Mike Mignola and the disgraced Scott Allie, drawn by Laurence Campbell, and colored by Dave Stewart.

Spoilers follow.








As longtime fans know, Hellboy died in 2011 leading into the Hellboy In Hell arc. But in Wednesday's BPRD: The Devil You Know #5, the BPRD discovered a coffin underneath the rubble of the former BPRD headquarters, a coffin that contained the body of Hellboy, apparently breathing.


Talking to The Hollywood Reporter, Mignola said, "For a very long time we've known where this series was going... The reveal at the end of issue 5 was planned years ago and I sincerely hope it catches readers by surprise. The internet being what it is, it's not easy to keep secrets these days, but I'm hopeful fans will help us out and keep a lid on things for awhile, until more people have had a chance to read the comic."

Surely his coming resurrection has nothing to do with the movie that's on its way...
