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!
I just got chills typing the title to this post.
You don’t need me to go through the guy’s credits, but I must, at least a little. Creator of Hellboy, Abe Sapien, the B.P.R.D., Lobster Johnson, Baltimore, Witchfinder, the Amazing Screw-On Head. Artist and writer of “Hellboy in Hell.” Living legend. Artist on one of the best New Gods story ever, “Cosmic Odyssey” and the best run of “X-Men Classic.” MIKE MIGNOLA. Guys – if you had told the Mignolaversity crew that we’d be typing up this piece, even a month ago, we wouldn’t have believed you. Thank you to every reader for supporting this month and making it possible, thank you to Scott Allie, Daniel Chabon, Aub Driver and Jeremy Atkins at Dark Horse for their hard work on this project, and thank you to Mike, for creating Abe and making all this possible. Please check out his website, like his Facebook page and follow him on Twitter (@artofmmignola).
And make sure to pick up “Abe Sapien” #1 on April 3 from Dark Horse!
