CCI: Mike Mignola

Also while at the Convention, I sat in on the Mike Mignola Hellboy panel. Here’s a sample:

Starting a theme that would continue for the panel, a member of the audience asked if Mignola would ever reveal the “origin” of the Lobster Johnson character. Mignola initially responded, “It’s pretty weird.” He went on to explain his has some misgivings about telling any character’s origin fully. “I might as well be telling a science fiction story,” he joked. The mystical nature of his characters necessitates a certain amount of the unknowable. “Writing supernatural [stories], there always has to be that level of things that happen that are beyond human comprehension.”
