Mike Mignola: 'I will write Hellboy until I die'

By
Hellboy creator Mike Mignola has said that he will work on the title as long as he is creating comics.

He said that although he has a conclusion in mind for the saga, it does not mean that would be the final issue of the long-running series.

The paranormal detective and prophesied herald of the Apocalypse has recently entered a new chapter in his tale in Hellboy in Hell.

"There's no way to know," Mignola told Newsarama when asked how soon the saga would end. "You're basically asking, 'How long am I gonna live?'

"I have an ending to Hellboy but it's not necessarily the last issue of the comic. That's because I don't trust myself. 'Oh, I've only got six months to live so I'd better draw the last issue of the comic!'

"Especially since I created Hellboy in Hell, because it's my world, everything I want to do, everything I could possibly imagine, everything I want to do in comics, I can do in that comic. It's not just Hellboy's story, but Hellboy can sit at a bar or sit on a beach smoking a cigarette with some other guy, and that can be that guy's story.

"I've done it once or twice in Hellboy. When you want a puppet show [like that seen in Hellboy in Hell #1], that can be in that story. There are so many different devices in that world to tell stories.

"Right now most of what I've plotted involves Hellboy directly, but I'm open to the idea of saying, this is about this other guy. And some other story I want to adapt that I just can't figure out how to bring Hellboy into. There's no ticking clock, it's just the comic I plan to be doing as long as I'm doing comics."

Dark Horse Comics' Hellboy in Hell #2 will arrive on January 2.
