Episode 81 – Hellboy Day with Mike Richardson & Friends!

by Chris Thompson

With Mike Richardson & Friends …
 
Following on from this week’s chat with Mike Mignola (which can still be heard here) – I continue the Hellboy Day celebrations with Dark Horse Publisher Mike Richardson, Mouse Guard‘s David Petersen, and editor Scott Allie – as well as Maura McHugh & Kim Newman, who have just been announced as writers on the new Witchfinder series from Dark Horse Comics!
 
We chat about what Mike’s work, particularly on Hellboy, means to each of them personally; how it affects what they’re doing now; and what else they have coming up. It’s a fitting tribute to a man and a character who have endured so long, as well as spotlighting how that legacy has impacted others.

Episode 50 – To Hell & Back with Mike Mignola!

by Chris Thompson

With Mike Mignola …
 
It’s a very exciting week as the Pop Culture Hound podcast hits the magic number 50! After 49 episodes, one special (with Alan Moore, no less) and a half-episode earlier this week, we’ve finally reached the half-century on our way to 100. To celebrate, I’ve pulled out all the stops to continue my run of stellar guests with someone I’ve been looking forward to … Mike Mignola. If you’ve been listening to the show you’ll know just how much I’ve enjoyed what Mike, and Dark Horse Comics, have been doing in recent times.
 
So sit back and relax as I chat with Mike Mignola about his work on Hellboy and the wider ‘Mignola-verse’. Find out how he got started, what he’d do if he were starting out now, how Hellboy came to be, and why it’s expanded. Plus we discuss his various collaborations with writers and artists, how he approaches his work, what drove him to pursue creator-owned, and how he actually feels about the ‘Mignola-verse’ tag. It’s a fascinating discussion, which had me as rapt as I hope you will be.
