144-pages Artist’s
12” x 17,”

Reproduced from fresh scans of the original art at the original size. Collecting the Eisner Award winning short story, The Amazing Screw-On Head, as well as a number of other stories of the same ilk.

This is the second Artist’s Edition of Mignola’s work that IDW have produced.

The hero of the story, The Amazing Screw-On Head is a robot working for President Lincoln as a Secret Agent. His opponent is Emperor Zombie, who is plotting to dominate the world.

There was a Pilot TV adaptation made in 2006, released on DVD in 2007, the series wasn’t picked up. I understand the plot differs somewhat, though I haven’t read or watched either as yet.

Fans of Hellboy, some of which I have read, will almost certainly be interested in this. volume

Mike Mignola said:

“I consider the stories collected in the Amazing
Screw-On Head and Other Curious Objects
to be the best work I’ve done in comics—certainly they are my favorite—so I’m thrilled to see them getting the IDW Artist’s Edition treatment,”
