• The new Hellboy video game looks exactly like Mike Mignola drew it - and that's a good thing

    Hellboy is one of the most famous and well-known superheroes outside Marvel and DC, and a big part of his instant recognition comes down to the unique and visually striking art of Hellboy's creator Mike Mignola, which has set the tone for the entire Hellboy mythos even as other artists have come into the fold.
