“With each new Mignola-helmed comic I find myself telling everyone how great this one is, how it blows everything he’s done before out of the water, how impressive and rich his artwork and stories are, and how there’s no way he can ever do anything better than this. But when I say he has outdone himself with this one, I really do mean it this time.” – Alex Brown, Tor.com

Mike Mignola has deservedly become one of the biggest names in comics for his creation of Hellboy. But when Mignola needs a short break from the Hellboy universe, he turns to diversions such as
The Amazing Screw-On Head, winner of the Eisner Award for Best Humor Publication!

When Emperor Zombie threatens the safety of all life on earth, President Lincoln enlists the aid of a mechanical head. With the help of associates Mr. Groin (a faithful manservant) and Mr. Dog (a dog), Screw-On Head must brave ancient tombs, a Victorian flying apparatus, and demons from a dimension inside a turnip. This new collection of oddball Mignola creations also includes “The Magician and the Snake” from Dark Horse Maverick: Happy Endings and nearly fifty pages of brand-new material, all as weird and hilarious as the beloved Screw-On Head.

The Amazing Screw-On Head was the source for the cult animated short starring Paul Giamatti, David Hyde Pierce, and Patton Oswalt

“The Amazing Screw-On Head story is hilarious … [Mignola's] art style and storytelling are top notch in my book, and he brings fresh elements to the form of comic books … this is a must have for your shelf.”

IGN

•Videogame review site

“The Amazing Screw-On Head, a singularly Mignola-esque creation if ever there was one, brings together the creator's many talents under one striking, odd, and funny roof.”

The AV Club

•Pop-culture website

“Few comic-book artists have as distinctive a style as Hellboy creator Mike Mignola, whose art often seems to come from an alternative universe where modern printing techniques never supplanted woodblocks, and the threat of monstrous extra-dimensional creatures makes H.P. Lovecraft stories read like reportage.”
