The setting is an alternate timeline of mid-20th Century in the magic and monster-ridden Drowning City, aka New York, some 40 years following the flood that submerged Lower Manhattan.

After stopping a terrifying creature that stole children -- and putting an end to the flooded dead that came back to life -- supernatural detective Joe Golem is back and once again on the case in Joe Golem: Occult Detective - The Outer Dark.

Published by Dark Horse Comics and available May 31 (today!), the new miniseries is written by Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden with art by Patric Reynolds and Dave Stewart and cover by Dave Palumbo. Taking place outside of the Hellboy-centric Mignolaverse, the pulpy tale of Golem continues from the pages of Mignola and Golden's novel, Joe Golem and the Drowning City, and set two years after "The Ratcatcher" and "The Sunken Dead" miniseries.

In the new series, Golem is on the hunt for a man who is hearing voices from another world and which imbue him with unstoppable strength. And in the exclusive Syfy Wire preview below, you can meet this man, named Bodo. Attended by two escorts, Bodo appears to be a short man with a lot of anger management issues (and a killing problem) as he boards a ferry from LaGuardia Airport. But that is just the beginning of his story ...

Two years after he killed a child-snatching monster and stopped an undead takeover in the Drowning City, occult detective Joe Golem searches for a man with superhuman strength who is attacking citizens under orders from the otherworldly voices in his head. But Joe has his own demons to wrestle with . . .
