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.

I <3 Mike Mignola. His art is inspiring. I love his comments at the end of the book.

An anthology of crazed tales by Mignola. They are mostly very very good and lots and lots of fun to read. The writing, good as it is, is second to Mignola's art, which captures and establishes a mood, image, and atmosphere which are powerful and exactly right. I regretted many of the word balloons, and wish Mignola had used some other method for dialog as they detract from the power of the art. His art both helped to establish my sensibility and to satisfy it.
