It's all well and good that Mike's a great writer, and has been doing more writing than illustrating. And that Hellboy is such rich source material that others have collaborated/written/illustrated their own Hellboy stories. More power to them all.
But this is likely to be the last Hellboy TPB I buy. (Except maybe the next, since Mike does some of it, even if not all. And of course, maybe the ones after that. Aw, dang it.)
Also, how could I resist the recent issue of Kabuki with a cover by Mike, and art by Dave? I'd love to see an artists' collaboration between those two with segments of work from each.
