Hellboy: The Storm #1 B.P.R.D. Fan Club Sketch Edition Back Cover

This is a special B.P.R.D. (Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense) Fan Club Sketch Edition available to members at a meet up at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con. (Note: this variant has the same barcode, ending in 00111, on the back cover as the regular edition).

This issue was part one of three of the "Storm" story, written by Mike Mignola with cover art by Mike Mignola & Dave Stewart and interior art by Duncan Fegredo. The colored cover art for #1 was also used for the regular edition (Diamond code: MAY100044) and a slightly altered version of the art on the collected edition for both the Storm and Fury story-lines (both shown below):
