When Saturday, March 23, 2019, rolls around, be prepared to celebrate with Dark Horse and Mike Mignola, the creator of Hellboy, on what will now and forever be, ‘Hellboy Day’.
It has been 25 years since the publisher first-released Hellboy: Seed of Destruction, introducing Mignola’s most-epic creation to what would become a now crazed-fanbase. In what has been dubbed the ‘Mignolaverse’, the publisher has expanded it to include such fan-favorites as, Abe Sapien, B.P.R.D., Crimson Lotus, Frankenstein Underground, Lobster Johnson and Witchfinder, among many others.
To celebrate, Dark Horse is inviting comic shops to partake in the milestone of the ‘greatest paranormal investigator by holding events and sales. In addition, it will create promotional materials for retailers, including tattoo sheets, bookmarks, double-sided posters of the ‘Mignolaverse’, window clings and signage. The publisher will release a promotional edition of the first issue of Seed of Destruction, featuring a new cover by Mignola, which will be given away at participating comic shops around the country.
It’s going to be a big year for the ‘Right Hand of Doom’. In April of 2019, the rebooted Hellboy will release in theaters, starring David Harbour, as the man, himself, and Milla Jovovich, as Nimue, the Blood Queen.
