August 1st, 2021

As of January 2022, we are focussing on the work of Mike Mignola, reading a selection of his books from the library’s graphic novels selection, especially Hellboy. Here’s a synopsis of one of them – ‘Hellboy: Strange Places’:

“Mike Mignola returns with his first new Hellboy collection since 2002’s Conqueror Worm. After leaving the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense, Hellboy’s travels take him briefly to Africa, then for a two-year stint at the bottom of the ocean. An ancient witch doctor, a giant fish woman, and the keeper of the secret history of the universe force Hellboy to either accept his role in the coming apocalypse, or have that role stolen from him. Weird undersea creatures and talking lions populate this turning-point adventure, which reveals secrets buried since Hellboy’s very creation. This volume collects Harvey-and-Eisner-award winner Mike Mignola’s Hellboy series The Third Wish and The Island with over a dozen unused pages and a new epilogue.”
