Book Review: Mike Mignola: The Quarantine Sketchbook

Mike Mignola: The Quarantine Sketchbook - 01


In 2020, stuck at home due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Mike Mignola started drawing some sketches and shared them on social media. The sketches were well received -- no surprises there -- so he and his wife decided to auction some of the sketches for charity.

I'm not sure if they sold the 200+ sketches featured in this book but they raised US $325,000 for the Jose Andre's World Central Kitchen. Some of those sketches must have sold for a lot. Anyway, making art and donating them for a great cause is great.

In this large format 232-page hardcover you'll get to see the sketches that were sold. These are all pencil sketches of his own characters as well as fan art. Each sketch is usually just a single character, and the drawings are framed with huge black borders. I love his style and these sketches are lovely.
