Mike Mignola is perhaps best known for his original creation Hellboy -- a character that has spawned numerous graphic novels from Dark Horse Comics as well as other media, including two feature films directed by Guillermo del Toro. Prior to Hellboy, Mignola's first mainstream comics work was with Marvel Comics, where he worked on such titles as The Incredible Hulk and Alpha Flight. He then moved on to DC, where his art on PHANTOM STRANGER and THE WORLD OF KRYPTON led to more high-profile work on COSMIC ODYSSEY and BATMAN: GOTHAM BY GASLIGHT. Mignola has also worked in film and TV as an illustrator, production designer and visual consultant on such projects as Bram Stoker's Dracula, Disney's Atlantis: The Lost Empire, Blade II, and the Hobbit movies. He lives and works in New York City.
