Mike Mignola’s cover art will adorn the new Death, Jr. TPB due in November. The three issue mini from Image Comics serves as a prequel to the new PSP game of the same title.
“I picked up Death, Jr. for my daughter. I thought the character was very cute, and that, combined with the whole death and monsters thing would go over well with her,” said Mignola. “I was right. She loved it. So how could I say no to doing the cover for the trade paperback? I couldn’t.”
Death, Jr. follows the misadventures of the Grim Reaper’s son. As Junior attempts to please his oddball set of new friends, he manages to unleash one of the world’s greatest evils.
