“In a world populated by Marvel and DC’s corporately owned superheroes, Mike Mignola forged his own path,” said filmmaker Kevin Konrad Hanna. “In addition to creating Hellboy, Mignola created one of the most successful independent comic book universes in the history of comics. He’s a true visionary.”

When Mike Mignola created Hellboy, he unleashed a visionary comic book character and launched an entire universe populated by unique heroes and creatures, misfits and monsters. Featuring in-depth interviews with Mignola alongside appearances from the likes of Patton Oswalt, Guillermo del Toro, Neil Gaiman, Rebecca Sugar, and Victor LaValle, Mike Mignola: Drawing Monsters is a film for fans of the Hellboy universe and the Hellboy movies, but more than this, it’s a film for anyone interested in creativity and the imagination.

“In a world populated by Marvel and DC’s corporately owned superheroes, Mike Mignola forged his own path,” said filmmaker Kevin Konrad Hanna. “In addition to creating Hellboy, Mignola created one of the most successful independent comic book universes in the history of comics. He’s a true visionary.”

“Mike Mignola is an inspiration, especially for creators like himself who don’t fit into traditional creative spaces,” said filmmaker Jim Demonakos. “His story is about defending his vision, and his creative drive reflects all of ours who want to tell unique stories.”

 

“We’re really humbled, excited, and honored to have Mr. Mignola speak to our community of movie lovers and movie makers,” said Secret Movie Club founder Craig Hammill. “Great movies are often made by folks who are inspired by the art of other mediums. Mr. Mignola’s key work as a storyteller and artist in comics that strongly reflect his voice mirrors the journey of independent filmmakers. We’re excited that our audience will get to ask Mr. Mignola questions directly about his journey and his thoughts on movies, creativity, and storytelling.”

The evening will be structured as follows:

6:00 PM Bride of Frankenstein

7:45 PM Mike Mignola: Drawing Monsters

9:30 PM Onstage Q&A with Mignola and the documentary filmmakers.
