Creator Spotlight: Mike Mignola

Mike Mignola is an American artist and writer most famously known for his work at Dark Horse Publishing where we created the character Hellboy and it's various spin-offs and sister series. Before that he worked for both Marvel and DC as both a penciler and inker on a number of series as well as a cover artist for several Batman issues. Famed comic book creator Alan Moore has described Mignola's style as that of "German expressionism meets Jack Kirby." Below are some of the comics and novels featuring his work both in our catalog and on Hoopla.
