Hellishly cute is in full swing in this brand new mini-bust collaboration.
Baltazar and Franco are behind the Eisner-winning “itty bitty Hellboy” comic, based on Mike Mignola’s iconic Hellboy, only cuter.
This officially licensed collectible measures 3.75-inches tall and features itty bitty Hellboy standing, with his trademark smirk, giving a thumbs up, on a big stack of buttery, syrupy pancakes. It’s beautifully sculpted by Arlen Pelletier.
Skelton Crew Studio has been collaborating with Mike Mignola since 2012 when it launched the B.P.R.D. Artifact Archive Collection, but this is its first collaboration with “Aw Yeah! Comics”’ Art Baltazar.
“It really captures Art’s style and the feel of ‘itty bitty’ — I couldn’t be happier,” said studio head Israel Skelton. “You can tell everyone in every step of the process really cared and really knocked it out of the park.”
“This is beautiful,” added Baltazar.
Each itty bitty Hellboy pre-ordered thru Jan. 31 will come with an extra sweet bonus: A hand-numbered, limited edition print of Art Baltazar’s concept art for the bust, signed by Baltazar.
