    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!

    Today’s piece is one of the more unique ones we’ve featured so far, and it is from Edwin Vazquez, creator of the newly released “The Werewolf of NYC.” Edwin is a scratchboard artist, which produces some incredible results. Although he sometimes colors his pieces with tattoo ink, his Abe was colored digitally, and the combination of the scratchboard and the digital coloring adds a distinct and unique look to the piece. Edwin is part of the Comix Gone Rogue collective, which does some amazingly fun work. You can find him at his website, Facebook, and follow him on Twitter (@edwin_vazquez).

    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!
