SET YOUR CALENDARS FOR HELLBOY DAY 2019
Are you doing anything on Saturday, March 23rd, 2019? Well, you are now! Dark Horse Comics will celebrate the 25th anniversary of Mike Mignola's Hellboy with his very own holiday. Way back in 1994, the publisher released the debut issue of Hellboy: Seed of Destruction, introducing fans to the Right Hand of Doom, the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense, and one of the coolest comic book characters ever.
For the 2019 Hellboy Day celebration, Dark Horse Comics will release a 25th anniversary promotional edition of Hellboy: Seed of Destruction #1 with an all new cover by Mignola and colorist Dave Stewart. This will be given away at participating comic book shops. Select stores across the country will host Hellboy Day events too.
“When I created Hellboy way back when I never imagined he would be around long enough to celebrate a 25th anniversary,” said Mike Mignola. “I’m grateful to the writers, artists, colorists and letterers who’ve joined me in telling Hellboy stories for all these years. And, of course, so grateful to the fans. This thing could not exist without their support and it’s a pleasure every time I get to go out to meet them.” Mike Mignola will appear at a Hellboy Day signing at Earth 2 Comics in Sherman Oaks in Los Angeles on March 23.
For participating comic shops, Dark Horse Comics will be creating some special Hellboy Day promotional materials including a Hellboy tattoo sheet, a Right Hand of Doom bookmark, a window cling, an open / close sign, and a new, folded version of the Hellboy double sided poster and Mignolaverse timeline that debuted at New York Comic Con this year.
All of this sounds awesome and I cannot wait to celebrate all things Hellboy in style next year.
