This first edition/first printing was autographed by Mike Mignola and Katie Mignola (co-writer of "The Magician and the Snake" Eisner Award winner for Best Short Story) on the free front endpaper. Katie is in graduate school now and joint appearances with her father are even rarer.
From the publisher:
Mike Mignola has deservedly become one of the biggest names in comics for his creation of Hellboy. But when Mignola needs a short break from the Hellboy universe, he turns to diversions such as The Amazing Screw--On Head, winner of the Eisner Award for Best Humor Publication!
When Emperor Zombie threatens the safety of all life on earth, President Lincoln enlists the aid of a mechanical head. With the help of associates Mr. Groin (a faithful manservant) and Mr. Dog (a dog), Screw--On Head must brave ancient tombs, a Victorian flying apparatus, and demons from a dimension inside a turnip. This new collection of oddball Mignola creations also includes "The Magician and the Snake" from Dark Horse Maverick: Happy Endings, and nearly fifty pages of brand new material, all as weird and hilarious as the beloved Screw-On Head.
