The Mignolaverse: A Collective of Amazing Artists

          Hellboy20yearsWelcome friends, this week at The Banana Stand I would like to discuss the roster of talented artists that have worked in the Mignolaverse, and why I think it’s an amazing achievement in modern comics.  For those not in the know, the Mignolaverse is comprised of Hellboy, BPRD, Lobster Johnson, Baltimore, Witchfinder, Sledgehammer 44′, and Abe Sapien.  The umbrella term “Mignolaverse” was coined to refer to the books Mignola himself has created.  They all exist in a shared universe with the exception of Baltimore, that is a creation of Mignola and author Christopher Golden, and exists in it’s own world.  In my opinion this universe rivals any other in comics, and is one of–if not THE–greatest accomplishments in the post-Silver Age era of comic books.  The ability of Mignola, editor Scott Allie, and everyone else involved in this corner of comics to coordinate such a feat is a marvelous thing.  Continue reading The Mignolaverse: A Collective of Amazing Artists
