Artist's Editions present complete stories with each page scanned from the original art, capturing a rare viewing experience that most of us would never have. Though appearing to be in black and white, each page is scanned in color to mimic as closely as possible the experience of viewing the actual art; corrections, blue pencils, paste-overs--all the little nuances that make original art unique--are visible. Each page is reproduced at actual size, and the paper selected is as close as possible to the original art board. Mike Mignola is one of the preeminent comics creators of the past 25 years. His career was already firmly established for his outstanding work on Batman, Wolverine, a myriad of beautiful covers, and more... And then came Hellboy. Mike's iconic creation struck a meteoric chord with fans from the very start and has not abated in the 20 years since his debut. This Artist's Edition features the first five issues of Hellboy in Hell as well as a wealth of historic supplementary material: the first three Hellboy stories--the two initial four-pagers, produced for promotional purposes, and the 10-page story from John Byrne's Nextmen #21--plus The Corpse, and two other tales selected by Mignola for inclusion. All but three pages of Mike Mignola's Hellboy Artist's Edition have been shot from the original art and showcase Mignola's gorgeous work as closely as possible to the physical page--this is a book for fans of great storytelling and students of the craft. A new printing with a brand new cover exclusively for this edition! Brought to you by the same team responsible for IDW Publishing's multi-Eisner Award-winng series of Artist's Editions.

Mike Mignola has deservedly become one of the biggest names in comics for his creation of Hellboy.

With the help of associates Mr. Groin (a faithful manservant) and Mr. Dog (a dog), Screw-On Head must brave ancient tombs, a Victorian flying apparatus, and demons from a dimension inside a turnip. This new collection of oddball Mignola creations also includes "The Magician and the Snake" from Dark Horse Maverick: Happy Endings and nearly fifty pages of brand-new material, all as weird and hilarious as the beloved Screw-On Head. • The Amazing Screw-On Head won an Eisner Award for Best Humor Publication. • "The Magician and the Snake" won an Eisner Award for Best Short Story. • The Amazing Screw-On Head was the source for the cult animated short starring Paul Giamatti, David Hyde Pierce, and Patton Oswalt.
