5.0 out of 5 stars It is eye-candy... 29 May 2003
There's a nice introduction to this book by Scott Allie, one of the editors of the Hellboy series, who sheds a little insight into the way Mike Mignola works. If I have a quibble... it is the lack of commentary on the pieces of art displayed in this book by the artist himself.
Otherwise it is eye-candy, pure bliss. The book is beautifully bound and if you are a fan of Mignola's work, as I am, I cannot recommend this book more highly.
The book features a black and white copy of Mignola's original inks from the pages of 'Seed of Destruction" (it is interesting to compare this to the printed colour page), several sketchbook pages, painted art and reprinted pages from the Hellboy series.
This is a visual feast - enjoy!

This book is a must buy for any fan of Mike Mignola's work. A beautiful volume designed in part by Mike himself, and packed full of all that makes him so popular with the comic fan base.
The book includes many sketch book pages, unused cover concepts and finished paintings, as well as giving an insight into how Mike Mignola actually works.
Whether you are looking for more of Mike Mignola's glorious line-work and shadows, or you are simply a fan of good comic book artwork - you will not be disappointed with the extraordinary value this book represents.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for Mignola fans - 9 Jun 2003
From finished water-colour paintings to wonderfully expressive sketches, 'The Art Of Hellboy' contains all that is great about Mike Mignola's work.
A great insight into the world that Hellboy frequents - and where Mike's influences come from.
If you enjoy the comics and are eagerly waiting for the next adventure of the big red paranormal investigator - this will feed your addiction!

интересная и впечатляющая подборка арта, в том числе опубликованного или изменённого (по-другому раскрашенного и т.д.) специально для этой книги;
большой формат, отличное качество печати, однако мягкая обложка сразу же начала отклеиваться, поэтому выбирать лучше эту же версию книги, но в твёрдом переплёте, ведь пересматривать её вам захочется снова и снова!
