This week, we’re turning the spotlight on the HELLBOY OMNIBUS, featuring over 300 pages of Hellboy drawn by Mike Mignola.
In 1993, comic book creator Mike Mignola’s most famous creation, Hellboy, first appeared in a four page, black and white story in San Diego Comic-Con Comics #2, months ahead of his full issue comic book debut in Hellboy: Seed of Destruction.
“From the beginning I knew Hellboy was going to be a book about monsters fighting monsters,” said Mignola. “I started off with a 4-page teaser about a shabby dog at a gas station turning into the Egypian god Anubis, and since I got away with that I just kept going—the Baba Yaga, the Penanggalan, demonic Mexican wrestlers, Irish goblins, flying Japanese heads—there’s a whole world of monsters out there, so still plenty of work for Hellboy to do.”
Now, for the first time, Dark Horse presents the complete Hellboy saga in chronological order for the ultimate reading experience. The story begins with Hellboy’s mysterious World War II origin and features his 1994 confrontation with the man who summoned him to Earth, the earliest signs of the plague of frogs, and Hellboy’s supposed fate as the herald of the end of the world. This volume also features the earliest adventures of the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense, including Abe Sapien, Liz Sherman, and sees Hellboy drafting Roger Homunculus into his own ill-fated service with the B.P.R.D. This 368-page volume covers Hellboy’s adventures published from 1994 to 1997, reprinting Seed of Destruction, Wake the Devil, The Wolves of St August, The Chained Coffin, and more. Don’t miss it!
