It’s Abe Sapien Month at Multiversity! To see all sorts of Abe content, like our “Evolution of Abe Sapien” contest, fantastic original art, interviews and more, click here.
To celebrate our “Evolution of Abe Sapien” art contest, which gives every fan with some ambition and a modicum of artistic talent a chance to have their work published in an issue of “Abe Sapien: Dark and Terrible,” as well as take home a complete set of Hellboy Library Editions, we decided to bring in some ringers, to show us how they interpret everyone’s favorite fish-man. We will be posting pieces each day for this entire month, so come join us for 31 Days of Abe!
Kevin Mellon has one of the coolest day jobs of anyone we know – he’s one of the storyboard artists for FX’s “Archer,” a show so hilarious it is almost not to be believed. When he’s not mocking up some of the funniest jokes you’ve ever heard, he is a damn fine artist in his own right, recently having work in Image’s short-lived, lamented, “Creator Owned Heroes,” as well as his collaboration with Blair Butler, “Heart,” and his graphic novel with Dennis Hopeless, “LoveSTRUCK,” both also for Image. Another project with Hopeless, “Gearhead,” is available to read online for free here. Buy some of his original art on Cadence Comic Art, check out his website, and follow him on Twitter (@kmellon).
