Hellboy's premier crime fighter in an all-new novel!

Where greed and the occult walk hand in hand, where mobsters and monsters prowl the streets, none escape the justice of Lobster Johnson!

In the years before World War II, Jonas Chapel was a respected physician, until his appetite for vice got the best of him and he found himself on the run from one of New York's most powerful mob bosses. On the lam in Mexico, Chapel stumbles across a powerful witch and a cursed skeleton -- and the power to transform men into monsters. Now, he's back in New York, selling his creations to the highest bidder.

Only one man, backed by his team of trusted sidekicks, stands in his way. But will the Lobster's resolve be enough to shut down Chapel's twisted Satan Factory -- before New York itself is consumed?

A new novel by the author of the top-rated ABC Family television miniseries Fallen.

    First let me make clear that I wasn't all that familiar with the character of Lobster Johnson/ "THe Lobster" before I read this. Having said that, the author and/or Mike Mignola seem to have combined the best of the pulp heroes to create him (The Shadow, Doc Savage and The Spider to name a few), and to great effect. I'll go so far as to say that the book itself is a love letter to the pulp magazines in general. I would suggest this to anyone that enjoys action, pulp magazines/heroes, and the feeling of kid-like escapism that this book creates.

    A great tribute to the old pulp hero adventure!

    The Lobster became a fan favourite within the Hellboy universe. And Mike Mignola created another myth, a Lobster Johnson universe, with ‘The True Mystery Of Lobster Johnson’ to relate to. The introduction makes us long for more unreleased stuff, which will never surface. Just like ‘The Iron Prometheus’ this novel opens up a whole new world where Hellboy just isn’t needed. ‘The Satan Factory’ has all the ingredients, again seemingly low-budget, but making you wish for more.

    ABSOLUTELY a must have for ANY Lobster fan! Keeps all the Iron Prometheus characters in the Lobster's crew!!!
