Mike Mignola is best known as the multiple award-winning creator, writer, and artist of "B.P.R.D." and "Hellboy", but has fostered several other projects like "The Amazing Screw-On Head" and "Baltimore" with Christopher Golden. Although he began working as a professional cartoonist in the early 1980s, drawing 'a little bit of everything for just about everybody' - including characters like Batman and Wolverine - he was also a production designer on the Disney film "Atlantis: The Lost Empire". Mignola also acted as a visual consultant to Guillermo del Toro on "Blade 2" and the film versions of Hellboy, which were broadly adapted by del Toro from the original comic series. Mike Mignola currently lives in southern California with his wife, daughter, and cat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hellafun
By ricardo is reading on October 24, 2018
I have loved Hellboy for more than a decade now. It was among the first comics I ever picked up as a teenager and I loved pretty much everything about it from the word go—from Mignola's amazing artwork to the story's clever conceit. It's safe to say that the book has had a deep and lasting impact on me.

For some reason or another, though, I only ever really managed to read a handful of the stories. And I think this is mostly because Hellboy's main story has been told in such a haphazard, hodgepodge way over the years. I was never quite able to keep up with it.

But then the other day I saw that Amazon/Comixology had the digital version of the omnibus collections for dirt cheap and decided I need to fill this glaring gap in my pop culture knowledge.

<I>Seed of Destruction</i> was, I think, the very first Hellboy book I ever picked up (at a Sam Goody of all places—remember those? I am an old). I still remember all the things that drew me into the story: the gorgeous art; the matter-of-fact way it dealt with the supernatural (that nobody ever comments on Hellboy's demonic demeanor is still one of my absolute favorite things); the way it played with folklore and history; and the ominous, Lovecraftian implications of the world it presented. I was young, still, and a budding reader at that. I was very much discovering what exactly my alley was, then—but I knew that this was right up there.

It still holds up, I think. It's a little clunky and rushed at times, sure, but you can't help but admire the sheer ambition Mignola had from the get go. He begins with the end of the world, after all. And then he keeps on running.

Mignola's skills with storytelling through art are evident, too, and still impress the hell out of me. There are sequences here are so good that I'm certain you could take out the dialogue and the story would still read through, almost like a silent movie.

And then, of course, there is Mike Mignola's actual art: expressive, cinematic, stylized, and <i>stylish as hell</I>. It is, and forever will be, an absolute joy to look at.

I can't wait to read the rest of my devil boi's story, finally.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yup
By Jesus Trujillo on August 29, 2018
Loved the movies and loved the book. Came on time and in one piece. Started reading it as soon as it came in and it made this white streak coming down but that was on me. Worth getting if you love HellBoy!
