Mignolaversity: It All Goes to Hell with - Mike Mignola and John Arcudi and Scott Allie

"SA: I can’t remember if it’s the first or second issue, where something significant happens and Mike handles it so obliquely that even he realized, “oh, people might miss that. So I’m going to go back in a subsequent issue to help make it make a little more sense and less vague.” I thought, “cool, that’s alright. That works.” So then I read the scene that makes the earlier scene make more sense, and I think, “great, people will still miss this.” It’s so…Hellboy is so much like a dream. Mike always wanted Hellboy to kind of read…not literally like a dream, but his aesthetics and his whole vision sort of go down that road. By taking him off the planet and getting him away from the B.P.R.D. and never having to draw a car again, he’d be able to make it real. It’s like watching Eraserhead with a demon walking around…or a lot of demons, because we’re in Hell." 4 out of 5
