My 20th Anniversary tribute piece for Mike Mignola’s Hellboy
Here’s the rest of my piece for those interested in checking it out. Unfortunately, it was deemed non-participatory for the tribute show due to Disney’s name & logo being on the actual piece. Oh Disney…
First image: This was my faux VHS Clamshell cover layout.
The fine print at the bottom of the back cover reads: "This is an alternate world-timeline videocassette in which Disney acquired Dark Horse Comics instead of Marvel. May or may not play in this timeline properly. Purchase at your own risk."
But in reality, it is an actual vhs copy of the first Atlantis film I scored off of Ebay.
I chose to put Hellboy in that world because Mike Mignola played a huge hand in the character designs and overall design and look of the film.
Plus I think it’s funny he worked with Disney, and I’m sure other animation fans will get the joke. :)
Back Cover: The text reads-
"From the creative team who brought you The Lion King and The Little Mermaid comes another exciting quest of adventure and the occult. Be a part of the paranormal expedetion and search below the sea for one of the greatest sea monsters of all time… The Mighty Cthulhu.
Join historian Milo Thatch and Hellboy, World’s Greatest Paranormal Investigator, as they board the incredible 1,000 foot submarine Ulysses (again) as they head deep into the heart of the mysterious sea. Things take an unexpected turn when the team discovers that Atlantis has transformed into a barren underwater post-apocalyptic wasteland.
Filled with stunning effects, this captivating story is loaded with laughs, gore, and messages of friendship and teamwork. Dive into Atlantis 3: Fire Under Water- it’s an adventure your family will enjoy taking over and over again.
For the 3rd time.”
It also reads "Congrats on 20 Years of Hellboy" & "Thank You Mike Mignola" in the Barcode area.
