Mike Mignola: The Quarantine Sketchbook to Benefit Chef José Andrés’ World Central Kitchen
During the coronavirus quarantine, legendary Hellboy creator Mike Mignola posted original pencil sketches online and auctioned off the art to raise money for Chef José Andrés’ World Central Kitchen. The sketches went viral and were the talk of the comics internet. Now those sketches will be in print for the first time in a new, oversized hardcover collection from Dark Horse Books, with all profits going to World Central Kitchen (WCK).
The book features an introduction by Christine Mignola, alongside sketches of Hellboy, beloved and unexpected pop culture characters, macabre chess pieces, gothic vegetable creatures, strange vampires, and more.
Mike Mignola: The Quarantine Sketchbook features Mignola’s eclectic and unexpected interpretations of pop culture characters including:
- The General Mills Cereal Monsters (Count Chocula, Franken Berry, and Boo Berry)
- HR Puffnstuff
- Masters of the Universe characters (including He-Man and Skeletor)
- Punch and Judy
- The Tin Man
Mike Mignola: The Quarantine Sketchbook goes on sale in comic book shops on March 3, 2021 and in bookstores on March 16, 2021.
