hellboy-in-hell

Mike Mignola, like Pope, is another comics destroyer whose art continues to reduce itself into gorgeous compositions of shape and shadow. If a picture is a sum of destructions, as Picasso said, then Mignola is significant in that as he destroys, he does not compromise the storytelling or density of an image. The writing’s good too. If you haven’t picked up Hellboy in Hell, it’s well-worth the 2.99 price tag.
