Hellboy: Return of the Lambton Worm

Beware creepy coffins in an exclusive Hellboy comic from Mike Mignola and Ben Stenbeck

Playboy teamed up with the creator of the Hellboy Universe, Mike Mignola, and artist Ben Stenbeck for "Return of the Lambton Worm," a comic exclusively released to Playboy for the magazine's May/June 2018 issue. Of course, Mignola released the first Hellboy series, Seed of Destruction, in 1994 and introduced the world to the Right Hand of Doom, the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense, and one of the most iconic comic book characters—and universes—of all time. For more than 20 years, Mignola and a host of celebrated writers and artists have chronicled the adventures of Hellboy facing his supposed destiny as Beast of the Apocalypse, and explored the mysterious backstories of B.P.R.D. agents including Professor Trevor Bruttenholm and Abe Sapien. This month, Dark Horse Books published Mignola’s award-winning Hellboy stories in chronological order for the first time ever, the Hellboy Omnibus Collection (available in bookstores June 5, 2018.) Before picking up one of the six paperback volumes, enjoy this exclusive Playboy comic.
