[[ Free Audiobooks ]] The Amazing Screw-on Head and Other Curious ObjectsAuthor Mike Mignola – Multi-channel.co

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 the Beanstalk are quite beautiful. Son yk i in ten d rt diyorum izimler tamam ama hikayeler hi ilgimi ekmedi Olmu olsun diye yaz lm gibi mi yoksa toplama olsun diye mi anlayamad m. 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 the least of the book s contents, as far as I m concerned It s great stuff, but the real winners are the new stories Their art showcases Mignola at the top of his game, and they re great weird mythologizing of the first order There are pages and panels in The Amazing Screw On Head and Other Curious Objects that I could talk about at great length, but I ll restrain myself, at least for now.I ve said elsewhere that I couldn t pick a favorite, but that s not true It s not very productive to do so, since every story is virtually perfect, but my favorite is definitely The Witch and Her Soul, about which I love every line, every panel, and every image.Mignola has said of The Amazing Screw On Head that it was a comic that he did just for him The Amazing Screw On Head and Other Curious Objects has the feel, at every turn, of a book that was done just for me. Lovely short book The hardcover is beautiful. 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 not aware of them The only story that kind of made sense to me was Abu Gung and the Beanstalk. 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 statement is even true though gushing reviews from Hellboy lovers lead me to believe me it s accurate Given some of the ties to folklore Abu Gung and the Beanstalk is basically Jack and the Beanstalk retold there s a lot that I could like here, but it seems like Mignola, in his fame and likely sans editorial oversight , didn t have to do better than throw crap against the wall as the beloved creator of Hellboy.The one piece I did enjoy was The Prisoner of Mars, which wound up being a fleshed out, kooky alien story Maybe it was that the tale was told by old men sitting around a table giving it a small anchor to the normal world but the humor felt just right If nothing else, I suppose randomly spewing out ideas will give you a gem every once and a while Regardless of how it happened, I liked it, but then the final story in the collection went back to the disappointing norm Even Mignola admitted it s not really a story in the notes it was simply a way to close the collection with a few random pages About all that happens is a button is pushed and a skull s eyes light up Oh, you re still reading this review You didn t immediately rush out and purchase The Amazing Screw On Head and Other Curious Objects based off that riveting plot development alone Well then, you might feel similar to me I place a premium on endings, and the ending to a shorts collection is a way to comment on the whole Since The Amazing Screw On Head and Other Curious Objects is ultimately lazily random and unfulfilling, I ll say the closing commentary of the final piece is accurate All that s left to do now is to wait for Mike Mignola fans to comment about how I m not smart or creative enough to get his work In the mean time, one star.

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 daughter actually came up with the story itself, and he drew it It s a simple and beautiful tale, and in the context of Hellboy, it adds a deeper layer to those final panels.Overall, it s a solid collection on its own and a necessary companion to Hellboy.
