About the Author

Mike Mignola's fascination with ghosts and monsters began at an early age; reading Dracula at age twelve introduced him to Victorian literature and folklore, from which he has never recovered. Starting in 1982 as a bad inker for Marvel Comics, he swiftly evolved into a not-so-bad artist. By the late 1980s, he had begun to develop his own unique graphic style, with mainstream projects like Cosmic Odyssey and Batman: Gotham by Gaslight. In 1994, he published the first Hellboy series through Dark Horse. There are thirteen Hellboy graphic novels (with more on the way), several spin-off titles (B.P.R.D., Lobster Johnson, Abe Sapien, and Sir Edward Grey: Witchfinder), prose books, animated films, and two live-action films starring Ron Perlman. Along the way he worked on Francis Ford Coppola's film Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992), was a production designer for Disney's Atlantis: The Lost Empire (2001), and was the visual consultant to director Guillermo del Toro on Blade II (2002), Hellboy (2004), and Hellboy II: The Golden Army (2008). Mike's books have earned numerous awards and are published in a great many countries. Mike lives in Southern California with his wife, daughter, and cat.

Praise for Monster-Sized Hellboy

“Hellboy embarks on a hunt for giants, but is instead betrayed by the very men who invited him. It sounds simple, but as with most Hellboy stories, the level of subtle depth and craft makes the entire experience very rewarding.”—IGN
 
“Mignola’s art is bold and unique, with its simplicity adding to the story’s barren and eerie atmosphere. Paired with colorist Mark Chiarello, the art in “Seed of Destruction” intertwines the real and the supernatural in powerful ways. The confluence of real and fantastical occurs superbly in one particular scene.”—Comics Authority
 
“In short, this ending ruined me. It was hauntingly beautiful, devastatingly melancholy, and surprisingly heartfelt. It hurts to see Hellboy go, but it’s glorious to see him find a home.
Final verdict: I never thought I’d give any story a 10, but I couldn’t in good conscience give this anything less. This is a masterpiece.”—MultiversityComics on Hellboy in Hell
