Dark Horse Comics’ 19th century paranormal investigator heads to Haalam to look into some mysterious murders surrounding a cure-all elixir and some strange creatures.
Edward Grey is sent to Hallam to investigate a mysterious death. Once there, he hears rumors about the mysterious Unland, the wetlands around the town, and the creatures that inhabit it. Grey’s skepticism vanishes when he encounters the monsters of Unland, and he realizes that Hallam is a place of secrets.
Dark Horse already makes some of the best horror comics on the market today with the likes of BPRD, Hellboy, Lord Baltimore, The Strain and tons more coming out of the publisher every month. And just in case you don’t know the name, add to that lineup Witchfinder.
The followup to Witchfinder: Lost and Gone Forever, Witchfinder: The Mysteries of Unland once again follows after Sir Edward Grey and looks like another spooktacular tale spinning out of the Hellboy universe. The writing team of Kim Newman and Maura McHugh and artist Tyler Crook handle the character this time around, and both the art and tone of the story look great so far.
The Grey character has now appeared in three independent story arcs (including this one) and in Dark Horse Presents Once just a minor character, he’s forming a pretty interesting little universe of his own under the Dark Horse banner and outside of the Hellboy world where he first appeared.
