CREATING A WORK IN THE FIELD OF COMICS IS A LONG, SLOW AND OFTEN LONELY PROCESS.

HOWEVER, WHEN YOUR WORK EXPANDS BEYOND WHAT YOU THOUGHT POSSIBLE, THE REWARDS ARE IMMEASURABLE.

THIS YEAR’S RECIPIENT HAS SPENT THE PAST 25 YEARS CREATING A RICH AND COMPLEX UNIVERSE – A PLAYGROUND, WHERE HE AND HIS COLLABORATORS HAVE EXPLORED MYTHS AND LEGENDS – AND CREATED SOMETHING ENTIRELY THEIR OWN.

THE STORIES AND CHARACTERS HAVE GIVEN FANS AROUND THE WORLD AND IN DENMARK ENORMOUS JOY – EVEN LEAPING FROM THE PAGE AND INTO FILM AND ANIMATION. AND NOW – RIGHT AT THIS VERY MOMENT – A NEW FILM IS IN PRODUCTION, GIVING ALL OF US MORE TO LOOK FORWARD TO.

ONE CHAPTER HAS CLOSED ON OUR PANCAKE EATING, HORNED PROTAGONIST AND WHILE HIS STORIES ARE STILL BEING TOLD – WE LOOK FORWARD TO WHAT THE FUTURE MAY HOLD, NOT JUST FOR HELLBOY, BUT FOR HIS CREATOR.

THIS YEAR’S HONORARY HANNE HANSEN AWARD

– GIVEN TO FOREIGN COMICS CREATORS WHO HAVE LEFT A LASTING IMPRESSION ON DANISH COMICS CREATORS AND FANS –

GOES TO MIKE MIGNOLA!
