Darkhorse Comics Author Mike Mignola

In 1994 Mike Mignola’s first Hellboy story, “The Seed of Destruction,” was published by Dark Horse Comics. The series about a paranormal investigator from Hell soon proved to be a popular and critical success with its abstract artwork and H.P. Lovecraft-style horror. It helped make Dark Horse, headquartered in Milwaukie, Oregon, one of the leading publishers of adult comics in the world.
