Staff Picks (Jun13): Itty Bitty Hellboy #1
May 17, 2013
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!
