Collects Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser and Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser: The Cloud of Hate and Other Stories.
Mike Mignola's fascination with ghosts and monsters began at an early age; reading Dracula at age twelve introduced him to Victorian literature and folklore, from which he has never recovered. Starting in 1982 as a bad inker for Marvel Comics, he swiftly evolved into a not-so-bad artist. By the late 1980s, he had begun to develop his own unique graphic style, with mainstream projects like Cosmic Odyssey and Batman: Gotham by Gaslight. In 1994, he published the first Hellboy series through Dark Horse. There are thirteen Hellboy graphic novels (with more on the way), several spin-off titles (B.P.R.D., Lobster Johnson, Abe Sapien, and Sir Edward Grey: Witchfinder), prose books, animated films, and two live-action films starring Ron Perlman. Along the way he worked on Francis Ford Coppola's film Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992), was a production designer for Disney's Atlantis: The Lost Empire (2001), and was the visual consultant to director Guillermo del Toro on Blade II (2002), Hellboy (2004), and Hellboy II: The Golden Army (2008). Mike's books have earned numerous awards and are published in a great many countries. Mike lives in Southern California with his wife, daughter, and cat. View titles by Mike Mignola
Al Williamson (1931–2010) was one of the premier science-fiction and fantasy comic strip artists of his time. Born in New York and educated at The School of Visual Arts, Williamson had a photo-realistic style that hadn't been seen in the world of comics up to that point. He is the winner of multiple Eisner Awards. View titles by Al Williamson
Walter Simonson is a comic book writer, artist, and cover artist known for his work on RoboCop versus the Terminator, Usagi Yojimbo, and Fritz Leiber's Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser. He is the winner of multiple Shazam awards. View titles by Walter Simonson
