Corben on HELLBOY? (drool...)

one of the best compliments i ever received as an artist was when a friend compared my art to that of horror comics legend Richard Corben. one of my favorite things to find when i'm crate-digging at conventions is a cool Corben comic. anyways, click the pic to peep Corben's quirky, gritty textures on Hellboy: The Bride of Hell. Corben provides the art, with story and cover by Hellboy creator Mike Mignola and colors by the always awesome Dave Stewart. In Bride of Hell, a nineteen-year-old girl is kidnapped and Hellboy tracks her down to a remote clearing in France where she's about to be given to Asmodeus, in a strange tale of ghosts, demonic revenge, lost love, and King Solomon. hopefully, Hellboy fixes everything by tapping a monster's jaw with his giant stone hand! anyways, enjoy the preview and keep an eye out for Hellboy: The Bride of Hell, which drops in stores December 23rd.
holla!

Oh, man-o-MAN! I'm so getting that (thanks for the heads-up). Haven't see much from Corben since 2001's spectacular "BANNER!" and he's been a favorite since I bought my first copy of Heavy Metal.

What's next for Hellboy? A Bernie Wrightson-penned story?

Hmm. Now that I'm thinking, I wonder what a super-clean artist like Alan Davis would do with Hellboy...

i'm not a fan of anybody but Mignola drawing Hellboy, and have been acting like a sour-faced toddler ever since he stopped drawing the books... Mike Mignola IS Hellboy, and nothing else makes any sense!

BUT Corben is SO fabulous, and (like you said) M.I.A. for the most part, that I will unfold my arms long enough to read this! Corben was SICK on BANNER, and I expect to adore him here. Corben has actually drawn Hellboy before, in a two-issue story called Hellboy:Makoma where Corben illustrated a flashback sequence that takes place in Africa.

anyways, after Bride of Hell is over, i will poke my bottom lip back out, re-scowl my eyebrows, and return my arms to their fully folded and locked position!
