  1. Thanx SO much for posting these sketchbook images. I've been a HUGE fan of Mr Mignola's work ever since discovering him in 1996, thanx to The Comics Journal #189. As his comics work has dwindled since he got involved with the movie biz, it's always a treat to find any of his drawings. Anyway, I can help identify most of the characters featured here, so here goes:

  3. P13: Gruagach, the pig-guy, with the box containing the dismembered body of Nimue, Queen of Witches, both from "Darkness Calls" & "The Wild Hunt". Background figures are two of the "weird little people" (as Hellboy describes them), from "The Corpse" - one of the best Hellboy short stories, and an excellent place to start for beginners of the Hellboy mythos (imho!).
    P14: Everyone's favourite big red guy.
    P15: Dunno.
    P16: Again, dunno, but could be one of the Lords of Hell, or possibly Gruagach in the form he took to impress his human lover (in "Darkness Calls")?

    Okay, I can see I'm gonna have to go dig out my copies of "Darkness Calls" and get back to you!
