Hellboy: Crooked Man #1

Writer: Mignola, Artist: Richard Corben, Colors: Dave Stewart

I’m liking this arc even better than Corben’s previous one. This has a storybook quality, an innocence that contrasts nicely with the horror that Hellboy soon attracts. It is so very different from Mignola’s style yet, somehow, amazingly, it has that Mignola magic. Dave Stewart looks like he applying colors with a sponge! It is abstract and textured, and it really works with the bold illustrations.

This is the first of 3 walking panels. Hard to choose – but I picked this one for the black silhouette, the sponged background and the loosely drawn leaves that express so much greenery so simply.
