Joshua Dysart Does Hellboy and BPRD!


From the article on Comic Book Resources entitled NYCC, DAY 2: SCOTT ALLIE REVEALS THREE NEW HELLBOY PROJECTS FOR 2007

“Comic Book Resources: And then there’s “BPRD 1946” which I’m going to take a guess is set just when Hellboy was still a wee-un? What can you tell us about that?

Scott Allie: Yeah, so Mignola and Josh Dysart are writing this and Paul Azaceta is drawing it. Paul was our choice for Lobster Johnson at one point, but I felt he was a better choice here, and Armstrong better on The Lobster. Hellboy’s barely in this – he’s effectively not in it. He’s basically an infant at this point, and Broom is sent back to Europe to look into the remains of the Nazi Occult Bureau’s experiments, see what they were up to.

In Berlin in 1946, you had the beginnings of the Cold War – two years ago we were allies with the Russians, and now we were uncomfortably occupying – in the military sense of the word – the same space. And the Russians, of course, had their own occult specialists on the scene.”

Also I’m writing a Hellboy one-shot with Mike Mignola called “HELLBOY: THEY THAT GO DOWN IN SHIPS” to be illustrated by Jason Alexander. It will only be available with the upcoming Hellboy Video Game.

Life is good.

The amazing work of Paul Azaceta
