Day 101 of the #365drawingchallenge continues Hellboy Week with the shapeshifting pig monster, the Gruagach of Lough Leane. This character is interesting because he started off in a one-shot style story and seemed like he was just going to be a minor one time monster, but he became a fairly major recurring villain. Most of the monsters Hellboy battles are not recurring, so this solidified him as a pretty big deal as he become involved in the mainline mythos. It looks like he will be appearing in the new Hellboy movie, which is very cool.
I love all the various Hellboy monsters and villains because they are all so unique compared to what you get in the world of comics, especially superhero geared comic books. Hellboy is unique in that it is a superhero comic mixed very heavily with a horror comic. Which is why I love it.
