The Amazing Screw-On Head and Other Curious Objects by Mike Mignola
The Amazing Screw-On Head and Other Curious Objects

williams.ron, November 20, 2010

I'm a Mike Mignola fan and collector. I had finally gotten my Hellboy and B.P.R.D. collections up to where I wanted them, and bought this to begin rounding out the collection. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I figured that at the very least it would have very nice art work to look out. Those were my expectations when I ordered it. While reading it, my expectations were blown away!

This is a book of one issue length story (eponymous) and several shorts completely unrelated to the Hellboy/B.P.R.D. universe. All of them were beautifully rendered with Mignola's trademark style, and the stories themselves were excellent. Not comical in the classic sense, but very humorous and highly creative. The Magician and the Snake had to be my favorite. All of them were a blend of sometimes dark, sometimes absurd humor and beautiful art.

I highly recommend this to any fan of Mike Mignola, or independent comic books in general.
