Hellboy: Weird Tales

 HEWT   (Dark Horse, 2003-2004)

™ and © Dark Horse Comics, Inc.

With a feature film starring the Mike Mignola character set for 2004, what better time to reintroduce the hero known as Hellboy to fans? This series, featuring a variety of writers and artists’ take on the monstrous paranormal investigator, does the trick. Issues feature several short stories set in different times and places, in styles as varied as dark and mysterious (by artists including John Cassaday) and light and quirky (Andi Watson). Other name creators include Fabian Nicieza.

There’s also a serialized backup feature that looks like something out of a mid-20th century comic strip, “Lobster Johnson,” written and drawn by Cassaday. Stories are in full-color; issues also include pin-up art.
