The Amazing Screw-On Head


Mike Mignola is best known as the creator of the immensely popular comic and film franchise, 'Hellboy'. But in 2002, Mike created a short story called 'The Amazing Screw-On Head' which has since gone on to become many of his fans favorite works of his.

Published by Dark Horse Comics in 2002, starring the character of the same name, The Amazing Screw-On Head is a quirky story about a robot whose head can be attached to different bodies, each with different tactical abilities. The Amazing Screw-On Head functions as an agent of the U.S. Government, and is tasked with keeping President Abraham Lincoln safe from Occult threats.


The comic was met with great success, and was optioned as an animated series. The Sci-Fi Channel even went as far as producing a pilot episode. Sadly, the show wasn't picked up, but we can still enjoy the 22 minute pilot, which does a fantastic job of emulating Mignola's style and stars actors like Paul Giamatti and David Hyde Pierce.

You can watch the full episode below:


In addition to the original publication, you can also find a special Artist's Edition of 'The Amazing Screw-On Head', published by IDW. This enormous book (12x17 inches) reproduces all the original art at it's original size, without it's digital colorization. However, the black and white pages are actually reproduced in color regardless, which gives an amazing representation of what the original pages look like without and digital level adjustments. You can variations in the type of ink he uses, and even the pencil work behind the inks. It's a true feast for artists.

  3. After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com or call him +2349055637784 you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything. CONTACT HIM NOW FOR SOLUTION TO ALL YOUR PROBLEMS
