Teaser Trailer for ‘Mike Mignola: Drawing Monsters’ Documentary Film
“You look at Mike, and there’s not a line wasted… He is such an astonishing artist.” An early promo teaser trailer has debuted for an indie documentary project called Mike Mignola: Drawing Monsters, from filmmakers Jim Demonakos & Kevin Konrad Hanna. The doc profile focuses on comic book artist & creator Mike Mignola, best known for creating Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. They’ve just launched a new Kickstarter campaign, hence the teaser, with plans to finish up later this year. Mike Mignola: Drawing Monsters “tells the definitive story of one of the most influential and important comic book creators of all time,” including “never-before-seen interviews conducted with the legendary creator at his studio, drawing demonstrations, behind-the-scenes footage from comic book conventions,” and more. This looks like it can break out of the by-geeks-for-geeks mold of docs like this and give more people a chance to learn about Mignola and his art.
