    There are some possible references to Western comics in MHA











    Do you think any of these are just coincidences or they’re intentional? Did you spot any?

    Not sure about Hellboy one but most likely the rest are intentional, the author is a fan of Super hero comics in general.

    Yeah, there's definitely a Mignola influence to Hori's art, especially in the early chapters before he got kinda 'house-styled' to WSJ standards.

    I mean, the author's love of western comics was never a secret.

    He literally drew Spiderman, Wolverine and Superman in the first page of the first chapter in his manga. Among others, of course.
