    The Amazing Screw on Head and Other Curious Objects is a collection of short stories written and drawn by Mike Mignola They re mostly fun, whacky one shot tales, and if you ve read Mignola s other short stories, you pretty much know what to expect While this book isn t a part of the Hellboy universe, one particular story here, The Magician and the Snake, is crucial to understanding Hellboy in Hell s ending Mignola s seven year old da...

    As sometimes happens when I get new Mike Mignola books, I m having some difficulty articulating my feelings about this one To say that it s the most perfect comic ever produced would probably be hyperbole of the worst sort, but it s also shockingly close to how I actually feel, so there you go.First off, The Amazing Screw On Head and Other Curious Objects represents the most new material written and drawn by Mignola that we ve gotten in years Plus, I hadn t read any of it prior to this release, though I read an online preview of The Magician and the Snake and I d seen the animated pilot for the proposed Amazing Screw On Head cartoon series So this was all new to me.Also, Mignola is, as everyone knows, my favorite writer and artist, and this is 100% unfiltered Mignola doing what he loves best, without the constraints of having to fit anything into a coherent universe as he does in, say, his Hellboy comics Now, usually stuff like this, sort of surreal, sort of comedic, is of less interest to me than stuff like Hellboy, but Mignola s take on it is completely delightful pretty much every step of the way.The title story is actually t...

    I was neither amazed nor connected to Mike Mignola s The Amazing Screw On Head and Other Curious Objects.Screw On Head is a magical head that screws into different robotic bodies to go fight Emperor Zombie an undead occultist who s stolen an ancient manuscript Sent by Abraham Lincoln, Screw On Head is aided by his manservant, Mr Groin, and his dog, er, Mr Dog If this all sounds rather nonsensical and somewhat like a bizarro bend on things, it s because it is Admittedly, I m rarely a fan of bizarro, as it feels like comedy without the straight man If there isn t something normal to reflect just how weird the weird is, nothing has any real consequence or pull However, I m a huge fan of magical realism as one thing being bizarre in the normal world has depth to explore The Amazing Screw On Head is obviously the title story from Mignola s one off shorts collection Both this story and The Magician and the Snake, co written with Mignola s young daughter, won Eisner awards in 2003, but neither did much for me for the aforementioned reasons I like Mignola s art which has darker colors and Victorian themes but this work feels like something to come to later once you know Mignola s style It s not a starting point If you don t know, Mignola s the creator of the vastly popular Hellboy If you ve read it, you know his style, quirks and love for Abraham Lincoln but I ve never read the series, so I didn t know I was supposed to like all this or if that st...

    I didn t get it I guess some people like it and maybe they are Mike Mignola fans I ve never read anything by him and am kind of sorry I actually bought this one I wish I had my money back It was perfectly well drawn but it seemed clear that Mignola was just fooling around and tossing out whatever weird stuff came into his head I guess it would be nice to indulge yourself that way Or maybe there s a whole series of stories that set this collection up I m...

    Amazing Screw On Head and Other Curious Objects is full of strange, absurdist steampunk horror stories I was surprised at how many short stories were in here, as the graphic novel itself is relatively short Each story felt brief because of it Instead of getting a typical story structure beginning, middle, and end , we are given snippets of things that seemed like they could have been pulled from a larger narrative Sometimes it had a cool and poignant effect and other times it made the story feel on the random side I liked it overall though The art style was gritty while also lending itself to an air of whimsy There was plenty of humor laced throughout the collection as well Even though not every story hit its mark for me, I still had a good giggl...

    I m not quite sure how to describe these stories one part King, one part Pratchett It s quite amusing, actually enjoyed it better than I did the Hellboy that I ve read The title story is steampunk like and quite amusing, the other stories, including a varaition of Jack and...

    A fun, whimsical, quick read I don t have much to say about it I liked the Wizard and the Snake story the most I wouldn t mind if The Screw On Head became its own major title in the Mignolaverse.
