As you may have heard through the grapevine, Hellboy experienced a mortality deficit last year and is currently stuck in his, ahem, "ancestral homeland." The upcoming comic series Hellboy in Hell will detail Hellboy's journey to the underworld, and his creator Mike Mignola will be along for the ride.
Mignola filled io9 in on such topics as Big Red's road trip down South and the Hellboy crossover comic that never was. Also, check out the very first episode of the Hellboy: The Fury motion comic, which debuted earlier this afternoon.
What role did you play in the development of The Fury motion comic?
They came to me about adapting The Fury, and I said, "Fine by me!" I did discuss the basic idea, but the motion aspect was left to other people. The input I had was on the overall tone of the story, characters' voices and accents, but I pretty much left it to the experts.
How's progress on Hellboy in Hell coming along?
