The Art of a Mignola Fight Scene | HELLBOY | Strip Panel Naked

- Advertisement -

On this episode, Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou wanted to look a fight sequence from Hellboy, The Wolves of Saint August, and look at how Mignola, Sinclair, and Brosseau tackled it. On re-reading the Hellboy Omnibus, this sequence struck Hass in particular because of its starkness in contrast to the rest of the standalone issue, and the striking use of yellow in one of the final pages. So Hass explored a little of the craft behind it, and what makes it work in context.
