Hellboy Expands with Mignola's Latest Creative Partnership

Mike Mignola also praised Lonergan's art, but also addressed the complexities of working with new artists:
When Mike asked me if I would be interested in doing something in the Hellboy universe, it felt a little bit like a dream. He's one of the artists whose work I revisit the most, and there have been times when I've been working on something and asked myself, 'How would Mignola do this?' And then to get to do a story that introduces a new character, expands the lore, and has gladiators, Victorian spiritualists, and lizard people - it's just been so much fun.

I fell in love with Jesse's stuff the moment I stumbled across it, but it took a long time for me to wrap my head around a way we could work together. His storytelling is o great bu amazingly unique and I'm such a control freak when it comes to how to pace a story...I had to trust Jesse to work his magic - and for me it's hard to really trust an artist I've never worked with, een one as good as Jesse - but I did it and he did what he does and I couldn't be happier with the results. I think this ends up being one of the most unique extensions of the Hellboy Universe, and after almost thirty years (and some very odd stories) that's saying something.
