Summer and Waterhorse

Greetings loyal and admittedly small cluster of 'Horse readers, summer is in full swing. Some of you may have noted that there was no comic for the holiday weekend. This can be contributed as much to lazyness as anything, but seeing that it was a holiday I was able to make it look less.. lazy.. And by admitting this I've lost all credibility in the matter.

Hellboy 2 comes out tomorrow, which makes it a TRUE holiday weekend for me, as I loooovee hellboy. Hellboy comics are being released in very nice 'library editions' via amazon, which preserves them in their greatness far better than the trade paperbacks that I have because let's face it, this one's hardcover, bigger, and fancy lookin'. It looks like my Calvin and Hobbes complete set. Mike Mignola and Hellboy have a noticable influence on Waterhorse. I have used his ingenious blending of folklore and personally crafted storytelling and fiction to intertwine these actual folkloric stories and place them in a world of my own design. So if you are a fan of Waterhorse, you'd probably be a fan of Mignola's excellent comic series Hellboy and the spinoff BPRD and the new TPB of Abe Sapien stories that is coming out in fall. I'm going to see HBII twice this weekend so it's going to rock.

Thanks for reading
Nick Kelley
