‘Mr. Higgins Comes Home’ Artist Warwick Johnson-Cadwell: The Horror News Network Interview

Just in time for Halloween, Mike Mignola and Warwick Johnson-Cadwell have cooked up a delicious original graphic novel treat for all fans of classic Universal and Hammer horror films entitled Mr. Higgins Comes Home. Horror News Network had the pleasure of speaking to artist Warwick Johnson-Cadwell and he discussed his unique style, monster movies, and “sad werewolves”.

Horror News Network: How did you become involved with Mr. Higgins?

Warwick Johnson-Cadwell: Mike and I were on a Sketch Panel at the UK’s Thought Bubble Festival and we got the chance to briefly chat and he suggested we might work on something together. He is such a hero of mine; I dared not think that would turn out the way it did. He got back in touch with this idea he had and I was amazed, then Scott Allie got in touch too and slowly it started to become an actual reality. I would get physical pangs of excitement while working on the pages and I still find it hard to believe even though the book is (about to be) on the shelf now. I cannot thank Mike, Scott and Dark Horse enough. read more
