The Hell Of It All
♦Comics writer Joshua Dysart, a talented creator in his own right, has begun a series of interviews with fellow comics professionals. His most recent one is with Hellboy creator Mike Mignola and since this is a great video chat, we just had to share it with everyone here. Thanks to those fine folks at 13th Dimension…
Last year, Mike Mignola finished Hellboy in Hell and took a sabbatical to paint. At the outset, he sat down with comics writer Joshua Dysart for an hourlong interview about Hellboy’s end, why he decided to devote himself to painting and the push and pull of creative thought.
The interview was recorded as part of a series being developed by Dysart and his partners. As Dysart put it, “As all involved in the series have pressing day jobs, finding funding and a home for the series — a continuing process — as well as the editing of the Mignola interview itself, took longer than anticipated.”
This is a fascinating insight into the mind of one of modern comics’ true originals.
