Hellboy comics author retires

[Link:] Comics Illustrator of the Week: Mike Mignola [Illustration Age]

One of the most influential artists of the last 30 years, Mike Mignola, is taking a 1 year break (at least) from comics after the final issue of Hellboy in Hell releases this week. Mignola might come back, but who knows?! He’s going to focus on personal art projects, like paintings. Hopefully, the time away will recharge his battery for comics, whether it’s more Hellboy, B.P.R.D. or something different.
