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!
April Fools! We totally planned on having only 31 Days of Abe sketches, but so many artists that we asked and expected a polite “no” from sent in amazing pieces. And then, artists were reaching out to us, asking if they could participate. So, we are going to go a little bit longer, finally wrapping up with some really special day of release content on April 3. So, for the early part of this week, keep enjoying some amazing Abes!
Today’s penultimate Abe is from Charles Paul Wilson III, who you may know for his beautiful and heartbreaking work illustrating “The Stuff of Legend” for Th3rd World Studios. You also may have seen his pin-ups and variant covers for “The Manhattan Projects,” “The Avengers,” and “GI Joe,” among others, which run the gamut from playful to terrifying, and everything in between. He is a part of Ten Ton Studios, has a kickass deviantArt page, and make sure to follow him on Twitter (@cpwilsoniii) and buy some of his original art at Comic Art House. And, apparently, he lives in New Jersey, which makes him automatically my favorite artist of the day.
And make sure to pick up “Abe Sapien” #1 on April 3 from Dark Horse!
