Mike Mignola's HELLBOY Inspired Some Designs for MY HERO ACADEMIA
It turns out that All Might’s design may have been overly based on the art styles of Mike Mignola according to My Hero Academia’s creator Kohei Horikoshi. In a recent interview with Horikoshi and Yoshihiko Umakoshi, the topic was brought up about how Umakoshi saw Mignola’s Hellboy influence in Horikoshi’s work. This lead to a response from Horikosi gushing about Mignola’s work.
I never read the manga for MHA, but there was something familiar about some of the styling of the show. Did you notice the influence that Mignola has had on MHA?
