IDW Announces ‘Hellboy’ Artist’s Edition

Add Mike Mignola to the growing list of legendary artists — Joe Kubert, Neal Adams, David Mazzucchelli, Wally Wood and Walt Simonson, to name a few — whose work has gotten the Artist’s Edition treatment from IDW. The first five issues of Hellboy in Hell, the most recent series in Mignola’s Hellboy saga, will be collected in the book, according to an IDW press release.

”Since the beginning, I’ve been pretty much in awe of the Artist’s Edition series IDW has been doing,” Mignola said in the release. “I’m thrilled (and actually a little honored) to have a Hellboy book appear in that series.”

Artist’s Editions present the art from highly acclaimed comics series “in its rawest form,” mimicking looking at original art pieces.

“You are able to clearly see paste-overs, blue pencils in the art, editorial notes, art corrections. Each page is printed the same size as drawn, and the paper selected is as close as possible to the original art board,” IDW’s press release states.

The first four issues of Hellboy in Hell make up the book’s first major arc, and issue 5 is a standalone story. Issue 6 is on the way, though it hasn’t yet been solicited.
