When the first Hellboy animated feature hits the store shelves in February, it will include a 32-page comic inserted in each. These stories are spin-offs from the animated movies and will have no connection to regular Hellboy continuity. Earlier this month, Dark Horse Comics Editor Scott Allie posted information about the upcoming 80-page digest comics also based on the animated films. Stories will be written by Jim Pascoe, who will be assisted by Rick Lacy.
Providing the art in the digests (and presumably the DVD insert) will be Fabio Laguna. Mike Mignola will be creating a unique pin-up for each issue based on the main story by Pascoe and Lacy. Also, included in the digest will be a short by Tad Stones that chronicals the exploits of a young Hellboy and his fascination with Lobster Johnson.
Tad Stones has posted a mock-up of the cover to the first digest issue over at his website.
