When fossil experts first clapped eyes on the skull, it was clearly from a strange, horned dinosaur. When they noticed how stunted the bony horns were, its nickname, Hellboy, was assured.
The near-complete skull of the 70 million-year-old beast was spotted by chance 10 years ago, protruding from a cliff that runs along the Oldman river south of Calgary in Alberta, Canada.
Painstakingly excavated, cleaned up and measured since then, the fossilised remains have now been identified as a relative of the three-horned triceratops, and the first example of a horned dinosaur to be found in that region of North America.
”Therefore, send not to know For whom the bell tolls, It tolls for thee.”
Thank you to Mike Mignola and all the wonderful people who’ve worked on what is, was, and will always be my absolute favorite comic. You’ve really shaped my life, given me a direction to go in and inspired me to become the artist I am today.
