    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!

    Throughout the month, we will be posting a series of pieces by artists who regularly post at the fantastic sketch blog Brand New Nostalgia each morning this week. Check back weekly at their site, as each week their highly talented roster of artists tackle a different – and exciting! – subject.

    Today, we have Joseph DellaGatta showing us his comatose, incapacitated Abe. Joe is working on his original comic called “The Diver: Race for Atlantis,” which was inspired, in part, by the Dio song “Holy Diver” – that is one of the most unusual, most metal, inspirations I’ve ever heard! Formerly of the late 38 Studios, and proud of his Boston heritage, Joe is active on deviantArt and Brand New Nostalgia. Look for “The Diver” soon!

    Feeling inspired by this great piece of art? Then enter our “Evolution of Abe Sapien” art contest! Full details are here. And make sure to pick up “Abe Sapien” #1 on April 3 from Dark Horse!
