Hellboy sets sail from the wreckage of a deserted island only to cross paths with a ghost ship. Taken captive by the phantom crew that plans to sell him to the circus, Hellboy is dragged along by a captain who will stop at nothing in pursuit of a powerful sea creature. Following the events of Hellboy: The Island, Gary Gianni draws Hellboy in an original graphic novel. "The master of modern horror comics."-IGN "... Mignola's simple but elegant panel design should be studied by everyone who is or who wants to be a cartoonist. The script is a delight, too, as Hellboy's down-to-earth anger and everyman astonishment remains funny and refreshing." -Publishers Weekly

Hot off the success of Hellboy: Into the Silent Sea, Gianni's original masterpiece returns in paperback! Includes an introduction by Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Michael Chabon! Gary Gianni created one of the strangest occult detective teams in comics history: millionaire filmmaker Lawrence St. George and his associate, Benedict, of the venerable guild of Corpus Monstrum. They navigate a peculiar and deadly world plagued by squid pirates, zombie cowboys, abominable snowmen, mustachioed skulls, and fat, flying demons. Gianni’s meticulous and evocative art combined with his haunting but often hilarious writing create a horror comic unlike anything else on the stands. This book also includes classic prose stories by Robert E. Howard, Clark Ashton Smith, and more, illustrated by Gianni. “These are (along with a few issues of Stan and Jack’s Fantastic Four) my all time favorite comic book stories.”—Mike Mignola “Gianni is a master—The MonsterMen leaves no doubt: the dude knows how to rock a comic book page.”—Michael Chabon

Hellboy's World

Comics and Monsters on the Margins

Author: Scott Bukatman

Publisher: Univ of California Press

Category: Comics & Graphic Novels

Page: 280

View: 8731

"Hellboy, Mike Mignola's famed comic book demon hunter, wanders through a haunting and horrific world steeped in the history of weird fictions and wide-ranging folklores. Hellboy's World shows how our engagement with Hellboy is also a highly aestheticized encounter with the medium of comics and the materiality of the book. Scott Bukatman's dynamic study explores how comics produce a heightened 'adventure of reading' in which syntheses of image and word, image sequences, and serial narratives create compelling worlds for the reader's imagination to inhabit. In Mignola's work, the imaginative space that exists on the page and within the book becomes a self-aware meditation upon the imaginative space of page and book. To understand the mechanics of creating a world on the page, Bukatman draws upon other media--including children's books, sculpture, pulp fiction, cinema, graphic design, painting, and illuminated manuscripts. Hellboy's World delves into shared fictional universes and occult detection, the riotous colors of comics that elude rationality and control, horror and the evocation of the sublime, and the place of abstraction in Mignola's art to demonstrate the pleasurable and multiple complexities of the reader's experience. Monsters populate the world of Hellboy comics, but Hellboy's World argues that comics are themselves little monsters, unruly sites of sensory and cognitive pleasures that exist, happily, on the margins. The book is not only a treat for Hellboy fans but will entice anyone interested in the medium of comics and the art of reading"--Provided by publisher.
