    Very much looking forward to this. The last one was great. (I hope we get another to complete the In Hell run in Artist Edition.)

    Oh, awesome! Amazing Screw-on Head is one of my favorite Mignola stories. Looking forward to this.

    Does anybody know if these pages are lettered on the original art or not? IIRC it came out between The Third Wish (which was) and The Island (which I'm pretty sure wasn't).

    I don't know for sure, but it looks like it's lettered on the page to me.

    The Island seems to have balloons on the original pages, but the lettering was done digitally. This could be similar. I'd be surprised if they didn't include the lettering if the balloons are on the pages.

    Me, I kind of hope there's no balloons or lettering, just the art, but we'll see.

    Ah, you're probably right. It's probably just balloons.

    I would expect so yes, the blank balloons as fitted into the artwork, with potentially instances of big sound-effect words (BOOM!) or say a Magician speaking in geometric forms as also proving part of the actual art.
    I'm looking forward to seeing how awesome it's gonna look when this is published, as next to the already wonderful Screw-On Head And Other Stories book.

    I'm curious what else will be included. It's 144 pages, so that's 40 more pages than the Screw-On Head collection.

    Maybe... a new Screw-on head story?
    Probably not.

    I'm just not sure what he's drawn that fits in with this collection. Maybe the original pages for Abu Gung and the Beanstalk?

    That would be great! Or Solomon Grundy, the nursery rhyme comic bit? Or Weasel #4? What else.

    I'd like that one-panel gag comic, "Why did the chicken cross the road?"
