I spooked Mike on Facebook by accident once, before he turned off letters from non friends, I said Mr Mignola you inspired me to research the Nazis and without your work, such as it is, I'd be a lot more ignorant, if that makes sense.
Before the films were released, the most popular series mike wrote was Conqueror Worm, detailing a fictional Nazi space program possibl based on mikes RL researches.
Before conqueror worm, he was famous for the oneshot story "The Corpse".
I met mike at emerald city comicon, i was wearingabright red Seattle T-shirt under a huge brown coat of my husband lol. Accidentally dressed like HB.
The man who writrs Lady Death had a few hell boy books in his box and although it offended him, I bought The Corpse and Conqueror worm on the spot then went thru the line to mikes table for autograph
I told him at the time, he was my very favorite.
Love his character Elizabeth Sherman and the blonde psychic secretary lady... Lol
