    I'm learning something from building out this list, as I always assumed Rocket Raccoon was Mike Mignola's earliest work.

    And no "Chasing Amy" jokes about inkers are just tracers. It counts!

    Mr. Mike pencilled Rocket Raccoon. It wasn't his earliest work. Although for Marvel he did start out as inker initially.

    His first Marvel comics work being on The Defenders Vol. 1 #116 (feb 1983) inking Don Perkins for 22 pg., getting credited as "Diverse Hands". Not the cover 'though.


    Before 1983 mr. Mike had already worked on a number of issues of the fanzine "the Comic Reader" - nifty stuff, looking like a mix of Walt Simonson, Bernie Wrightson and of course Mignola.

    Mr. Mike became guest inker for Marvel under the editor Al Milgrom if I heard right, on a number of titles (even a print, together with Art Adams, plus a mag thing as with Amazing Heroes), after which also

    pencilling such stuff as Handbook of the Marvel Universe entries, until getting to pencil the cover of The Incredible Hulk Vol. 1 #302 (dec 1984) as inked by the not too shabby Terry Austin.

    Also: there won't be many people this side of the galaxy who can say they'd have been inking Art Adams, I would think, except for mr Mike.


    I believe in the comics themselves the editor Al Milgrom writes about landing mr. Mike some jobs for then to be presenting him as penciller for the Incredible
    Hulk. Leading to Rocket Raccoon, some Amazing High Adventure and Alpha Flight. Plus a boatload of other stuffs, luckily.

    I have made me a list, based on some websites (Wraithspace, Nick Warmack's site) plus the notorious Comic Artist issue, with trying to be completing it into the
    now eversince. It's a long list.

    Yup. Found this out now that I am looking beyond Hellboy and his Batman/Detective Comic work, which I always appreciated.

    So is the earliest cover work his inking on The Handbook to the Marvel Universe books? I'm still researching if there is any earlier cover work, but nothing yet.

    I knew about his Hulk work from a collection I had long ago that I traded off to reduce my collection. I just never paid attention that this pre-dated his Rocket Raccoon.

    I know of no Mignola-inked Volume 1 Handbook covers, only interior entries, both pencilled as well as inked.

    Earliest cover work (inks) I got, would be Master Of Kung-Fu #125 from june 1983, followed by What If #39 from june, both inking the pencils of Ron Wilson.

    According to my info earlier issues of Master Of Kung Fu or either Power Man and Iron Fist or other titles containing Mignola work do not feature cover work.

    I've been going through Comicvine, Comic Collector Live, and a few other sites. For some reason, a few of the sites list the Handbook comics as containing Mignola cover art.

    I think I'll remove these from the list, as I just don't see his work on the cover being noted on all sites. Not even the situation of Defenders #116 that you mentioned, with "M. Hands" - which was interesting information, as I hadn't caught this before.

    Been called a 'good egg'. Been told to rock, been told to steady myself. Been told to (please) be goin' places.
    Chillingly good stuff besides Mignola, Slint, M, Knut and really big chunks of tinfoil?

    Nahhh - just great at multitasking. Plus, I thought it would be fun to see what the list would be for Mignola covers.

    Found an example from 1983. This piece was auctioned off in 2004. Someone is a lucky OA collector, indeed.

    Bingo!

    From Mike Mignola's Facebook page.

    Mignola was born in September 16, 1960 Berkeley, California. He began his career in 1980 by illustrating spots in the Comic Reader. His first published piece was in the Comic Reader #183, a spot illustration of Red Sonja (pg. 9). His first published front cover was the Comic Reader #196; Dominic Fortune, the Spirit, and Doc Savage in November 1981. In 1982 he graduated from the California College of the Arts with a BFA in Illustration.
