    This was awesome. When the U.S. first shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Mike Mignola amused his fans by creating these sketches and posting them to social media. Then he started auctioning them off for charity. Raising over $325,000 so far for Jose Andres's World Central Kitchen. It's a wonderful charity that not only helps those in need of food, but employs out of work food workers to make the food. Now, Dark Horse is donating all the profits of this sketchbook to the World Central Kitchen as This was awesome.

    Generally I'm not a huge fan of sketchbooks added to the back of trade paperbacks - it sort of presumes the art is so fantastic I want to see more of it. That said, I always make an exception for Mike Mignola.

That said, I always make an exception for Mike Mignola. So Mike Mignola is semi-retired these days, but when presented with Covid-19s effect on life, which has generally meant some form of lockdown or quarantine (staying at home) for most people, he decided to make daily pencil drawings to amuse himself and his followers on social media, where he would post the drawings. Then he would auction off the drawings, eventually giving the money to Jose Andres' World Central Kitchen project. And now collected in this book, it's a true treasure trove of Mignolaisms. We get a few runs of Hellboy drawings, of course, but we get so much more. Flinstone characters. There's a Kermit. There's a Squidward. There are kaiju monsters. Very Mignolian riffs on Victorian photography - men with plants for heads, ladies with flowers for heads, dapper skeletons, dapper robots. Cavemen (and "lady cavemen"). Lizard people. Large amounts of snakes, hacked into pieces, draped over characters. And so many of the drawings are not only beautifully drawn, they are incredibly funny (I would even go so far to say they're witty). There is little text to be found - a short intro, and a short epilogue by Mignola himself. Do not expect comments on process (which wasn't a problem for me, personally). If all of this wasn't enough - all proceeds from this book will also be donated to Jose Andres and his World Central Kitchen. (Was graciously given an ARC by Dark Horse Books through Edelweiss)

    Mike Mignola besloot er het beste van te maken toen hij net als ieder ander een jaar binnen moest zitten. Hij ging tekenen, die tekeningen delen op het internet en vervolgens de originelen veilen. De opbrengst ging naar World Central Kitchen. Een organisatie die in in moeilijke tijden heel wat mensen van eten voorziet. Deze tekeningen zijn vervolgens gebundeld in een prachtig groot formaat hardcover schetsboek. Het is Mignola on optima forma., Iedere pagina een potloodtekening van een karakter. Mike Mignola besloot er het beste van te maken toen hij net als ieder ander een jaar binnen moest zitten.

Het is Mignola on optima forma., Iedere pagina een potloodtekening van een karakter. Soms is het zijn iedereen wel bekende Hellboy, soms een van zijn minder bekende karakters, soms is het een enge vampier of een soort griezelige zeemeermin. Daarnaast ook bijzonder schaakstukken, mensen met groente als hoofd en natuurlijk heel wat schedels. Alles in Mignola's misleidend minimalistische stijl. Echt een boek om langzaam, pagina voor pagina te bestuderen.

    A gorgeous book. I didn't see all the sketches when posted online, so having them collected in this book and on fantastic thick paper is amazing. The only thing I'd like is descriptions on the sketches (the idea behind each one, the process, etc). But still a great book for any Mignola fans. A gorgeous book.

    The experience of coronavirus lockdown over the last year or so has been vastly different for everyone, obviously; there was really no right or wrong way to do it, of course, as long as you were being safe. That said, I developed a nice little quarantine belly while Hellboy creator Mike Mignola posted sketches on his social media and auctioned them off, donating hundreds of thousands of dollars to World Central Kitchen so - strike that - I guess there WAS a right and a wrong way to quarantine. T The experience of coronavirus lockdown over the last year or so has been vastly different for everyone, obviously; there was really no right or wrong way to do it, of course, as long as you were being safe. That said, I developed a nice little quarantine belly while Hellboy creator Mike Mignola posted sketches on his social media and auctioned them off, donating hundreds of thousands of dollars to World Central Kitchen so - strike that - I guess there WAS a right and a wrong way to quarantine. This gorgeous, sturdy hardcover collection of Mignola’s drawings gives each piece its own page and allows it to shine, artistically as well as physically on the glossy heavyweight paper. The reproductions are perfect, letting every little chunky pencil line and all the breezy hatching stand out for closeup inspection. There’s lots of Hellboy stuff, as expected, as well as Mignola’s typical Victorian necromancy but he also throws in some left field pop culture icons for good measure (The Flintstones?! Genius!). This is the kind of sketchbook you can pour over for hours and hours and still find amazing little details.

    "Read" is a strong word since this book is all artwork. I gazed fondly at the delightful illustrations in this book. I admired deeply that Mike Mignola finding a way to shed some light while the world felt very dark. I felt happy to know that proceeds of this book go to a good cause.
