25 years later, Mignola is returning as a Special Guest to San Diego Comic-Con International to celebrate the 25th anniversary of that first story by including that in their 2018 Souvenir Book. This update will have colours by Eisner Award-winning colourist and longtime Mignola collaborator Dave Stewart. Also included is an all-new interview with Mignola and Jed W. Keith.
