Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Mike Mignolla's Hellboy has been raising infernal commotions for more than twenty years now, but this new collection of five Hellboy in Hell comics reconfirms what devotees already knew: He still qualifies as the right hand of doom even in the seething lowest precincts of Earth's belly. A fiery saga worth continuing.

Publishers Weekly
06/09/2014
Creator Mignola’s return to the adventures of “The World’s Greatest Paranormal Investigator” celebrates Hellboy’s 20th anniversary by killing him off and sending him back from whence he came: Hell. A cryptic ally from Hellboy’s past plays Virgil to his Dante, guiding him deeper into the abyss, where he is pitted against his old enemies, the devil princes of the inferno, and his own (unwanted) destiny: to rule the Underworld. Mignola confirms his stature as an expert in both comic art and page design. Demons and the tormented denizens of Hades, from monstrous giant serpents to nightmarish skeletal fish, are rendered in angular lines and deep, inky shadows, the negative black space skillfully prodding the eye from panel to panel. Despite the grotesquery of his characters, they look believable in their horrific settings, and Mignola’s simple but elegant panel design should be studied by everyone who is or who wants to be a cartoonist. The script is a delight, too, as Hellboy’s down-to-earth anger and everyman astonishment remains funny and refreshing. A grand Gothic opera of an adventure, this is a rollicking kickoff to Hellboy’s third decade. (June)

Meet the Author

Mike Mignola was born in 1960 in Berkeley, California and grew up in nearby Oakland, the eldest son of a tough and leathery cabinetmaker. His fascination with ghosts and monsters began at an early age (he doesn't remember why) and reading Dracula at age 12 introduced him to Victorian literature and folklore from which he has never recovered.
Besides comic books, Mike worked on Francis Ford Coppola's film Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992), as a production designer for the Disney film Atlantis: The Lost Empire (2001) and was the Visual Consultant to director Guillermo del Toro on Blade II (2002), Hellboy (2004), and Hellboy 2: The Golden Army (2008).

Mike lives somewhere in Southern California with his wife, daughter and cat. The author lives in Los Angeles, CA..
