From the FREE COMIC BOOK DAY website.

HELLBOY/B.P.R.D.—FCBD 2008 EDITION

To celebrate the release of Hellboy II: The Golden Army, Dark Horse Comics presents an all-Hellboy/B.P.R.D. extravaganza for Free Comic Book Day 2008! Hellboy creator Mike Mignola teams up with Hellboy: Darkness Calls artist Duncan Fegredo for a look into Hellboy’s nightmares; Mignola also teams with his B.P.R.D. team of John Arcudi and Guy Davis for a breathtaking twist to recent events at the Bureau — a preview of the events in the upcoming series The Warning; and Hellboy Universe newcomers Joshua Dysart (Swamp Thing) and Paul Azaceta (Grounded) team with Mignola for another look into the world of their B.P.R.D.:1946 series for an adventure from the early days of both the Bureau and its most famous member! A perfect jumping-on point for new readers and a terrific treat for seasoned fans of the rich Hellboy mythos!

Mark sez: Sounds good to me - I read the first issue of B.P.R.D.:1946 the other day, and after the Lobster Johnson mini, the last main B.P.R.D. series, and the jaw-dropping DARKNESS CALLS, it's amazing how Mignola has fleshed out his Hellboy franchise into a rich and consistent line of books. And each with little moments that unexpectedly pay off in another series entirely. Turns out he's a one man Bullpen.

:P I was just happy to get that one in there before you fixed it.

Hate it when you cut and paste something and Blogger lifts the formatting, too. What's the point of that? *fumes*
