If you caught yesterday’s “Abe Sapien” #19 then you know the story’s starting to dig into his past a little more. You also may have noticed the back cover, illustrated by Alise Gluškova. As a complimentary piece to “Abe Sapien” #19, Multiversity Comics presents here a short story from Gluškova with dialogue by Scott Allie and lettering by Clem Robins. I’ll let Scott Allie explain how this one came about:

“I met Alise at Chicago’s C2E2 last year. She’s part of a group of B.P.R.D. fans who throw a lot of energy at these books online. The group of them became friends, as I understand it, through message boards related to Mike’s work. They were cosplaying as B.P.R.D. and Abe Sapien characters when I met them. Alise was Strobl, the villain from Abe Sapien. Alise drew this story on her own. I got it from her right around the time Sebastian was drawing Abe Sapien #19, and there’s a coincidence between this story and a flashback in Abe #19 that was just too convenient for words. I offered to dialogue it, and Clem offered to letter it.”

And here it is…

    Mignolaversity: New Omnibus Edition Coming May 2021

    By | Sep 28, 2020 | News

    I absolutely love the omnibus editions that Dark Horse Comics does for Mike Mignola’s Hellboy Universe. Not only are they an easy way to read the stories, but they’re packed full of extras, often expanding on the already abundant extras in the individual trade paperback releases. Obviously, it’s always excellent news when a new omnibus […]
