Comment

Hellboy vs. the Aztec Mummy est une histoire courte en 8 pages publiée dans Dark Horse Presents #7.

Hellboy prend en chasse la momie d'un prêtre aztèque qui se transforme en chauve-souris géante et s'enfuit. Il se trouve que le crâne de cette momie "héberge" les dieux (et frères ennemis) Quetzalcoatl et Tezcatlipoca. Pendant la poursuite Hellboy se retrouve dans un cimetière où les corps s'animent et s'attaquent à lui. Ce qui nous permet de découvrir qu'un bras de squelette fait une batte (jeu de mot, ah ah) très efficace. KROK... SWAM... Home run!

Dans une interview pour CBR, Mike Mignola explique qu'il a effectivement construit l'histoire autour de cette simple idée marrante "d'Hellboy arrachant le bras d’un gars et le frappant avec". S'il y a une page représentative de cette histoire, c'est donc bien celle-ci ... au-delà de son intérêt graphique, bien sûr !

CBR: Well, you definitely returned to the milieu of Hellboy carrying a zombie's arm in his hand with which he could bludgeon anything in sight.

Mignola: It was something where Dark Horse had asked me to do a story, but I didn't really have a story. So I thought, "What would be fun to do?" Really, like you just said, nine-tenths of where that story came from was that I thought it'd be funny to have Hellboy pop a guy's arm off and hit him with it. It was not one of the "been cooking for 100 years" kind of stories that you get sometimes.

Cette histoire courte a été reprise dans le TPB "Hellboy in Mexico" publié en avril 2016.
