Ive been a Mike Mignola fan for a long time. I didnt even know that till recently. I've been a hellboy fan for a while. Before the movie and cartoons. You band wagon jumpers. (I do enjoy both though) But a month or two ago. In previews I saw the reprinting of this advertised. Fritz Lieber's Fafhard and the Grey Mouser. I had this graphic novel a long time ago. (It still may be stashed somewhere at my parents house.) I always thought it was really cool. Maybe thats why I was drawn to hell boy. Why it seemed so familiar and new at the same time. Further proof its a small world.
