    Great material as usual, Mark.

    One minor correction: both stories from Double Feature of Evil happen in 1960.

    Also, don't you know, why they decided to leave upcoming Krampusnacht one-shot out of these collections? It's under Hellboy brand.

    Thanks for the correction! I wrote this one in a hurry, I'm afraid. It's a single draft stream of consciousness...

    My guess is Krampusnacht will be a part of 1955, like the way the short story The Mirror is a part of 1954. Although, don't take this publicity blurb as final. Scott's still working on the right order and debating exactly what to put into each book. Think of this more of a snapshot of the concept at this point in time.

    Sounds reasonable. But to be frank I would prefer both The Mirror and Krampusnacht (and even England short stories) to be collected in Hellboy omnibuses. They are solely written by Mike (!) and stand apart from other Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. stuff. They feel like classic Hellboy.

    I perfectly understand the reason behind the decision to put it under Hellboy and B.P.R.D. umbrella. But since the inception Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. series has transformed from anthology (as it was presented) to ongoing with Robinson's overreaching arc, and these Hellboy stories simply don't fit there thematically. They will look like foreign body, when eventually Occult Cold War omnibuses will be released.

    Hellboy Omnibus Volume 4: Hellboy in Hell
    Available Winter 2019
    Hellboy in Hell, The Exorcist of Vorsk, The Magician and the Snake

    A real shame they decided not to release it in hardcover
    Are they really going to release Vol. 4 a year after the third one or is that a typo? :-/

    I don't know what you mean. Volume 3 is coming out Fall 2018 (September–November), and Volume 4 is coming out Winter 2019 (January–February). They'll likely only be three or four months apart.

    Ok, I get it. I thought Winter 2019 meant November/December.
