Publisher Comments:

The Art of Hellboy softcover is a lower-priced, paperback version of the stunning limited edition hardcover Dark Horse released in the Spring of 2003. Featuring art never seen before the publication of the hardcover, unused and unfinished covers, and drawing upon ten years of sketchbooks, The Art of Hellboy provides the ultimate inside look at Mignola's design, storytelling, and color work. Page after page of rarely seen art reveals the labor involved in creating one of comics' most acclaimed books.

I fell in love with Mike Mignola’s Hellboy the first time I laid my eyes on the comic ��" the artwork was so distinct and the protagonist so unique it was hard not to be drawn in. Mike Mignola’s artwork is deceptively blocky and simple, but they convey so much detail and depth with minimal lines. A lot of course, have to do with his masterful use of light and shadows.

Ron Williams, February 13, 2010 (view all comments by Ron Williams)
Mike Mignola made it a standard to put a section in the back of his Hellboy books containing excerpts from his sketchbooks that pertained to the story you just read. Those sketches and notes detailed his creative process and showed the evolution of an item, character, etc. from the eyes of the artist. If you normally skip that part, skip this book. If that section of his books interests you, then do yourself a favor and pick this up. It's all that, and a bit more indepth. Definitely worth the look.
