This Saturday, March 22nd is the 20th anniversary of the first release of Hellboy: Seed of Destruction #1 by Mike Mignola. Hellboy appeared as an eight page story in Dark Horse’s San Diego Comic Con Comics special, but Seed of Destruction was his first solo title. Anyways, Dark Horse has declared March 22, 2014 as Hellboy Day, with events in comic shops all around the world.
There will be several exclusive giveaway from Dark Horse and an all-new sampler comic feature two classic Mignola stories and two new stories by Mignola, Fábio Moon, and R. Sikoryak.
Also this week Hellboy: The First 20 Years hardcover collection comes out. This deluxe over sized hardcover book presents Mignola’s favorite covers and illustrations from the first Hellboy drawing through twenty years of work.
In state stores taking part of this event include: Comic Paradise Plus in Fairmont, Four Horsemen Comics & Gaming and Gary’s Comics & More both in Morgantown, and Purple Earth Comics in Huntington.
If you are a Hellboy fan or someone who is just kind of interested in learning about him outside of the movies, this is a good chance for you to stop by a comic shop pick up some Hellboy comics.
Oh and this candy shop in Hollywood is making Hellboy chocolate that you can pre-order till Saturday, but I can not found where to do the ordering from, so if you want some send them an e-mail.
