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."
- "The Amazing Screw-On Head" won an Eisner Award for Best Humor Publication.
- "The Magician and the Snake" won an Eisner Award for Best Short Story.
- "The Amazing Screw-On Head" was the source for the cult animated short starring Paul Giamatti, David Hyde Pierce, and Patton Oswalt.
