Hellboy in Hell is ending in 2016. Mike Mignola is taking a sabbatical. Oh, crap.
UPDATED 10/18/16: Hellboy in Hell Vol. 2 hits bookstores this week. What better time to raise this tribute from the dead (metaphorically speaking)? And to read what megastars like Frank Miller, Brian Michael Bendis, Jill Thompson, Richard Corben and Adam Hughes have to say about Mignola, click here.
In case you didn’t hear the news, New York Magazine’s Vulture has all the details.
Seems like a worthy occasion for a 13 COVERS salute, right? Right. But how to narrow it down? Hmm, let’s get nostalgic and go back to the beginning with a healthy selection from the original Hellboy run. Sound good? Good.
(My standard caveat: This is a subjective list and not a ranking of any kind. This is pretty much what I dig and you may feel very differently. So, rather than beef about a cover you don’t see, instead join in the fun and share your own choices in the comments section or in whatever social-media thread you saw this.)
