The three audiobooks are part of the same continuity as the comics, with Hellboy: A Plague of Wasps acting as a direct follow-up to 2022's Hellboy in Love. Together, they form a trilogy with ramifications for the larger Hellboy universe. The trilogy includes:
Hellboy: A Plague of Wasps
Things turn strange and dangerous when Hellboy accompanies his girlfriend, Anastasia Bransfield, on a trip to Brazil. They venture into the rainforest to stop an evil force from spreading. This first audiobook in the series will be available on July 31, 2023 wherever audiobooks are sold.
Lobster Johnson: The Proteus Club
Set in 1933, reporter Cynthia Tynan finds herself drawn into the mystery surrounding the disappearance of several prominent New Yorkers and seeks the aid of Hellboy’s childhood hero the Lobster. They must confront German spies, religious lunatics, and monstrously transformed people who have been subjected to hideous experimentation. The Lobster Johnson audiobook will debut in October.
Hellboy and the BPRD: The Goddess of Manhattan
Hellboy, Liz Sherman, and Abe Sapien are drawn into a bizarre case linked both to Hellboy’s adventure with Anastasia in Brazil and to Lobster Johnson. Co-authored by Young Hellboy writer Thomas E. Sniegoski, the third audiobook in the series will be released in November.
I am so ready for this!
