Hellboy!

Med anledning av nya filmen har vi en tävling på vår facebooksida där du kan vinna biobiljetter, men vi vill också passa på att tipsa om nya antologin The Mignolaverse: Hellboy and the Comics Art of Mike Mignola, ihopsamlad av by S.G. Hammond, som har releasefest i Stockholm ikväll! Vi har fått ett litet smakprov ur boken av Anders Lundgren, och den kommer även att gå att köpa på The Stockholm International Comics Festival som är över helgen!

"The remaining pages of “The True History of Lobster Johnson” traces the reception, adaptations and transformations that Cooper’s based on true stories character later went through. It holds a funhouse mirror to what I’ve described earlier while simultaneously addressing the sometimes tragic circumstances of the pulp and comic book pioneers. Archie Comics turning The Shadow into a blond spandex guy gets a well deserved lashing and the increasingly weird film adaptations culminating/reaching their nadir in Mexican films like Lobster Johnson y la Máscara de la Muerte are discussed. A continuation of this is found in “Latchkey Memories From Crab Point”, written by artist Guy Davis and published in the trade paperback B.P.R.D.: The Black Goddess (Oct, 2009). Furthering the intertextual play Davis recounts childhood memories of seeing movies featuring a crime fighting wrestler. The character he describes later shows up drinking with Big Red in “Hellboy Gets Married Part One” (Dark Horse Presents #31, Vol. Two #188, Dec, 2013). And so the tapestry keeps getting new patterns.
