The Return of Effie Kolb is two-issue Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. arc written by Mike Mignola and drawn by Zach Howard. The second issue was delayed due to COVID-19.


Part One[]

Years after he banished the infamous backwoods demon known as the Crooked Man, Hellboy returns to Appalachia when a young psychic warns Tom Ferrell of looming danger. But the Crooked Man’s house is no longer empty and threats both new and old simmer in the Virginia woods.

Part Two[]

Following Hellboy’s strange encounter with the new residents of the Crooked Man’s home, a young spiritual sensitive still feels that something bad is going on in the old Virginia mansion… and she’s right.
