Staff Picks (Jun13): Itty Bitty Hellboy #1

logo

Publisher: Dark Horse Comics

AAAaaaawwww yeeeaaah! Itty Bitty Hellboy! There’s only one comics team with such a resounding catchphrase.  It’s Art Baltazar and Franco Aureliani!  You know them.  They won an Eisner for Tiny Titans.  They founded a comic shop (Aw Yeah Comics!) in scenic Skokie, Illinois.  They just blew the roof off a Kickstarter campaign for their new indie publishing powerhouse Aw Yeah Comics.  And even more immediately exciting than all that? 

Mike Mignola has given his blessing to an all-ages Hellboy comic!  Abe, Liz, & Hellboy are all runnin’ around, lookin’ adorable, chasin’ ghosts, and eating a metric ton of pancakes!  (Can’t nobody argue with pancakes.)  Mike is super-stoked, but he’s stepped way back to let Art and Franco work their magic.  So expect some giggling golems, laughing lobsters, and at least one hysterical head-in-a-jar this August!

Staff Picks (September): The Can Opener’s Daughter GN

Recommended by Jim Fallone
Absurdist fiction is hard. To do it well, to have it not only hold meaning but to also hold your attention is harder yet. Rob Davis manages to do it in The Can Opener's Daughter.
