Happy Birthday, Hellboy!

Hellboy turned 20 last month! In the past two decades, Mike Mignola's creation has inspired a series of spin-off comics, two feature films, animated movies, toys and more. He also inspired this illustration!  This was my entry in Multiversity Comics' art contest (judged by Mike Mignola himself!) to celebrate this anniversary.

Thanks, Chris!
