520    "Hellboy, Mike Mignola's famed comic book demon hunter, 
       wanders through a haunting and horrific world steeped in 
       the history of weird fictions and wide-ranging folklores. 
       Hellboy's World shows how our engagement with Hellboy is 
       also a highly aestheticized encounter with the medium of 
       comics and the materiality of the book. Scott Bukatman's 
       dynamic study explores how comics produce a heightened 
       'adventure of reading' in which syntheses of image and 
       word, image sequences, and serial narratives create 
       compelling worlds for the reader's imagination to inhabit.
       In Mignola's work, the imaginative space that exists on 
       the page and within the book becomes a self-aware 
       meditation upon the imaginative space of page and book. To
       understand the mechanics of creating a world on the page, 
       Bukatman draws upon other media--including children's 
       books, sculpture, pulp fiction, cinema, graphic design, 
       painting, and illuminated manuscripts. Hellboy's World 
       delves into shared fictional universes and occult 
       detection, the riotous colors of comics that elude 
       rationality and control, horror and the evocation of the 
       sublime, and the place of abstraction in Mignola's art to 
       demonstrate the pleasurable and multiple complexities of 
       the reader's experience. Monsters populate the world of 
       Hellboy comics, but Hellboy's World argues that comics are
       themselves little monsters, unruly sites of sensory and 
       cognitive pleasures that exist, happily, on the margins. 
       The book is not only a treat for Hellboy fans but will 
       entice anyone interested in the medium of comics and the 
       art of reading"--Provided by publisher
