Nightcrawler and Hellboy

I first became a fan of John Cassiday's art with his work on The Authority.  That series showcased his ability to depict photo-realistic wide scale scenes of action and destruction and characters that are at once grounded and heroic looking.  I have enjoyed his work on various Characters like Batman, Captain America and The X-Men, and it's always a treat to see him tackle a new project.

Nice! The only flaw in this cover is that the guys are lit from opposite sides. That's more of an observation than a complaint, though; you do have rather limited resources, by the very nature of this page. Other than that one thing, it's flawless -- and the story would be a real corker, no doubt.

There's a big glowing orb floating in front of them, you just can't see it because of the camera angle. It's clear when you read the story, though. Remember, to get a coveted STF-Prize, you must not only point out a flaw, but show how it really isn't a flaw at all!

I'm so loving the look of this one.

Although, another picture I'd like to see is Hellblazer (John Constantine) with Hellboy.

Now, as then, I think that the Silver Age Night-Crawler (who once fought the Hulk) would have been a much more appropriate choice as Kurt Wagner's birth-father. It would certainly explain his being such an improbability magnet for magical happenings and beings!
