Miss Truesdale and the Fall of Hyperborea: Hellboy Time-Traveling Epic Continues to Expand Mignola’s Universe

Dark Horse Comics has announced a new time-traveling epic within the Hellboy universe titled Miss Truesdale and the Fall of Hyperborea. As Dark Horse continues to build upon the universe laid out by Mike Mignola. New creators continue to join one of the most expansive and ambitious universes in not only comics but all mediums of entertainment. This time, Mignola teams up with artist Jesse Lonergan and letterer Clem Robins for a supernatural horror four-issue miniseries that plays to the strengths of the creative team to deliver an unrivaled creative odyssey.

Dark Horse’s description of Fall of Hyperborea reads: 

“One of the last followers of a failing Heliopic Brotherhood of Ra, the unassuming Miss Truesdale, finds herself on the receiving end of Brotherhood leader Tefnut Trionus’s final vision. Connecting her life in Victorian London to a young gladiator in ancient Hyperborea, Truesdale discovers she now has the chance to change the future by altering the bygone past.”

Mignola shares his appreciation for Lonergan’s talents and the journey to finding a way for the two to create something special, saying: 

“I fell in love with Jesse’s stuff the moment I stumbled across it, but it took a long time for me to wrap my head around a way we could work together. His storytelling is so great but amazingly unique and I’m such a control freak when it comes to how to pace a story—I didn’t want to tie his hands with the way I structure things. But he is just so good… Eventually I came up with the idea for Miss Truesdale (an odd one, even for me) and just couldn’t think of anyone better to draw it.

We met, we talked, and I think we settled on a way to collaborate. It meant writing a plot that was tight in some places and very, very loose in others. I had to trust Jesse to work his magic—and for me it’s hard to really trust an artist I’ve never worked with, even one as good as Jesse—but I did it and he did what he does and I couldn’t be happier with the results. I think this ends up being one of the most unique extensions of the Hellboy Universe, and after almost thirty years (and some very odd stories) that’s saying something.”

Lonergan shares the dream come true feeling of putting his stamp on the Hellboy universe, saying: 

“When Mike asked me if I would be interested in doing something in the Hellboy universe, it felt a little bit like a dream. He’s one of the artists whose work I revisit the most, and there have been times when I’ve been working on something and asked myself, ‘How would Mignola do this?’ And then to get to do a story that introduces a new character, expands the lore, and has gladiators, Victorian spiritualists, and lizard people—it’s just been so much fun.”

Miss Truesdale #1 will be available at your favorite local comic shops on May 17, 2023.
