Hellboy: Weird Tales Character Sketches






Character sketches for the Hellboy: Weird Tales story I did called "Professional Help". The story featured Roger the Homonculus and a fellow B.P.R.D agent investigating a series of church burnings in Norway. And a bunch of other stuff crammed into ten pages -- a Black Metal cult, a Quisling Universist scientist enclave, a baby Frost Giant, and the entire affair book-ended with a second story involving a murder investigation. I worked the whole thing way too hard, stiff-armed the pencils and ached the inks, intimidated by Mignola's shadow and the caliber of artistic talent on the anthology.

Live and learn.
