Dark Horse Comics is celebrating the twentieth anniversary of Mike Mignola’s Hellboy with special store location events. Check out the press release and locals to see if anything is happen in your neck of the woods! If you attend one Maniacs, send us pictures via Facebook!

Press Release: March 22 marks the twentieth anniversary of Mike Mignola’s career-defining release of Hellboy: Seed of Destruction #1. After the character’s somewhat humble beginnings in an eight-page feature in Dark Horse’s San Diego Comic-Con Comics special, Seed of Destruction would begin the long life of the beloved “beast of the apocalypse.”
In December, Dark Horse announced March 22, 2014, would be Hellboy Day, with events happening in comic shops around the world!
In addition to a slew of exclusive giveaways, Dark Horse has produced an all-new sampler comic featuring two classic Mignola tales, “The Ghoul” and “Another Day at the Office,” as well as two new stories by Mignola, Fábio Moon, and R. Sikoryak!
Additionally, as part of this special promotion, participating retailers were entered to win an original piece of art from Mike Mignola. This special honor goes to Hot Comics and Collectibles in New Hope, Minnesota!
Look for the Hellboy: The First 20 Years hardcover collection, on sale in comic shops everywhere on March 19! This deluxe oversized hardcover presents Mignola’s favorite covers and illustrations in gallery style, from his first drawing of Hellboy through twenty years of publishing.
See below for the list of stores hosting signings and events with the creators currently working in the Hellboy universe! Check the Dark Horse NewsFeed for a complete list of stores participating in this special anniversary celebration!
