Mike Mignola’s Big Book

Posted in Art, Books, Comic Books on January 20, 2016 by chrisdsav

Ever seen the Artist rendition of the comics IDW Marvel and other companies put out. They look amazing. From Hellboy creator Mike Mignola.

San Diego, CA (January 20, 2016) – This June, IDW Publishing welcomes Mike Mignola back to its publishing slate with an all-new Artist’s Edition featuring the legendary creator’s Eisner Award-winning story, The Amazing Screw-On Head. This second Artist’s Edition featuring Mignola’s iconic work will collect the entire one-shot story by Mignola, as well as additional tales from the Screw-On Head collection. The hefty tome will be rounded out by a rich gallery of beautiful Mignola illustrations.

“I consider the stories collected in the Amazing 

Screw-On Head and Other Curious Objects

 to be the best work I’ve done in comics—certainly they are my favorite—so I’m thrilled to see them getting the IDW Artist’s Edition treatment,” said Mignola.

Squaring off against the likes of Emperor Zombie and Dr. Snap, The Amazing Screw-On Head is a quintessential Mignola tale. Fans of Mignola’s Hellboy can eagerly add this essential masterpiece to their collection which was a natural choice to receive its own Artist’s Edition.

As with all of IDW’s pioneering Artist’s Editions, Mike Mignola’s Amazing Screw-On Head Artist’s Edition showcases the original art scanned in full color at the size it was originally drawn at. Mignola’s rich, layered ink work is truly a sight to behold, as anyone who has read the Hellboy in Hell Artist’s Edition can attest.

The 144-page Artist’s Edition measures at 12” x 17,” and will be available through IDW and your local comic shop beginning this June.

KRAMPUS

Posted in Christmas, Comic Books, Holiday, Monsters, movies on December 1, 2015 by chrisdsav

Ah it’s Christmas  time, that time of year when you say Merry Christmas  to someone they say FUCK YOU. Or they tell you how offensive Christmas is to them. It’s also a good time for a Christmas  Horror movie and this year we have Krampus, Directed by Michael  Dougherty from Trick r TreAt. This movie comes out this Friday Dec 4th (Dec 5th begins the annual Krampus celebration in Pagan cultures) . I can’t wait the trailer looks great and we have needed a great Christmas Horror movie. When was the last time we had a great Horror Holiday movie, Season 3 of Supernatural , A Supernatural  Christmas Special that’s when. A boy makes a wish and summons the demon who comes on Christmas eve to terrorize and abduct the naughty  family members.

Krampus is basically anti Santa Klaus a very unknown creature in German Pagan lore. He would kidnap bad children and beat them with branches across their butts. Krampus has been around since before there was Christianity according to some scholars. It was around the 17th century that he was recognized as much as Santa Claus. It was in the 21st century  that popular  culture  made him famous.

Now only in the last 10 years has Krampus risen to fame. I can’t remember  seeing anything about this creature in any form before now. Jim Balent’s Tarot Witch of the Black Rose has fought the creature on three occasions the most recent being last week in issue # 95. Even bringing  in a female Krampus.

There is also a Krampus comic book tie in to the movie which came out last week, Krampus the Dark Spirit of Christmas.  He’s become so popular  I’m surprised Marvel and DC have not had him fight Doctor Strange or John Constantine yet. I’m sure it’s only a matter of  time before they do. In Christmas Horror Story Krampus shows up, there is a movie coming soon Santa vs Krampus. The guy is getting around. on Scooby-Doo Mystery Inc he showed up to terrorize  bad children but of cource that was a crook in a costume. RL Stein’s The Haunting Hour tv show also had a Krampus. I really wish the Real Ghostbusters back in the 80s had one as well.

I think it was American Dad who first introduced  me to the idea of the creature. Steve is kidnapped in Christmas eve by the creature.  I honestly can’t say I remember  hearing about him before American Dad or Supernatural. A neat idea that will get so over used we will be sick of seeing him on the big and small screen. Let’s hope there are more evil Christmas monsters we can use for the future. At the very least I never want to see a Krampus found footage movie.
