Mike Mignola/Hellboy Story Is An Interesting One

Hellboy has appeared in countless graphic novels and comic books, prose novels, and short story collections, acclaimed role-playing games and video games, three live-action films, and two animated features, and has inspired countless toys and collectibles. Now, award-winning Hellboy creator Mike Mignola is getting his turn in the spotlight in the all-new documentary MIKE MIGNOLA: DRAWING MONSTERS, which tells the definitive story of one of the most influential and important comic book creators of all time. This feature-length film includes never-before-seen interviews conducted with the legendary creator at his studio, drawing demonstrations, behind-the-scenes footage from comic book conventions, and interviews with some of the most influential people in entertainment.

"There are very few documentaries that permeate and stay with you for days, weeks, months after you finish it," added Nacelle Founder and CEO Brian Volk-Weiss. "This one sucked me right in and never let me go… I cannot wait for the world to see it!" Hopefully, they can figure out a release plan for this fast, as I am very interested in watching it. I was not a part of that original Kickstarter, and I have been kicking myself about it ever since.
