Gabriel Hernández Walta will team with Mike Mignola for the upcoming Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.: Old Man Whittier one-shot this summer.
Old Man Whittier is Walta’s first art assignment on a Hellboy comic, which continues the story of the troubled family that Mignola began in 2010’s Hellboy: The Whittier Legacy.
Walta says that he has “…been a fan of Mike’s work for more than thirty years, and having the chance to work with him and the Hellboy team was simply awesome. I also had the chance to draw an old house with cobwebs, ghosts, snakes, and a charismatic red demon wearing a trench coat…what more could I ask for?”
Mignola is excited to finish the story of the Whittiers “…especially when there was a chance to collaborate with the amazing artist Gabriel Hernández Walta.”
Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.: Old Man Whittier #1 comes with a standard cover by Walta and a variant by Mignola and will be available in stores on June 29.
