Celebrate 20 years of comics’ favorite paranormal detective during Hellboy Day March 22 from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Portland TFAW!
This can’t-miss event kicks off with a Q&A with Scott Allie, Hellboy editor for 20 years and writer of Abe Sapien; Dave Stewart, Eisner Award-winning Hellboy colorist; and Tyler Crook, Eisner Award-winning B.P.R.D. artist; a signing will follow.
Attendees will enjoy Hellboy Day exclusives from Dark Horse, raffle prizes–including items signed by Hellboy creator Mike Mignola–a photo op with “Hellboy” himself, portrayed by Kyle Yount, and free food and beer (21+ with valid ID).
Creator Mike Mignola debuted Hellboy, his wildly popular demon detective, just over 20 years ago through Dark Horse Comics. Mignola’s unique blend of Lovecraftian influences, action-adventure, and humor–as well as his striking, unique art style–quickly made the series a success. Since then, the universe has expanded into additional titles like B.P.R.D., Abe Sapien, and more.
Mark your calendars and come make a toast to Hellboy March 22!

Join EMP for a special event with comic book author/illustrator and Hellboy creator, Mike Mignola, who will present Moby Dick (1956).
Thursday, December 12, 2013
Doors at 7:00pm, show at 7:30pm
Inspired by the Fantasy: Worlds of Myth and Magic exhibition, the Modern School of Film (MSF) is thrilled to collaborate with EMP on the ongoing Film:Fantasy Series, imploring master artists to choose films that define fantasy as only cinema is able. The Modern School of Film (MSF) is a film training and study institute based in New York and Los Angeles that combines in-class instruction with film:master screenings with the belief that you don’t need to be in school to be a student.
Mike Mignola: Legendary comic-artist Mike Mignola opens the series with Moby Dick (1956) directed by John Huston (screenplay by Ray Bradbury). Based on Herman Melville’s novel, Huston’s Moby Dick is the story of the sole survivor of a lost whaling ship who relates the tale of his captain’s self-destructive obsession to hunt a giant creature from the ocean depths. Starring Gregory Peck as Captain Ahab and Richard Basehart as Ishmael.
Best-known as the award-winning creator/writer/artist of Hellboy, Mike Mignola was also visual consultant to director Guillermo del Toro on both Hellboy and Hellboy 2: The Golden Army films. He also co-authored (with Christopher Golden) two novels Baltimore, or, The Steadfast Tin Soldier and the Vampire and Joe Golem and the Drowning City. Mignola lives in Southern California with his wife, daughter, and cat.

The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund has fought for the First Amendment Rights of the comics community since 1986. Now here’s your chance to join the fight for free speech at our CBLDF Liberty Annual 2013 signing and membership drive October 9 at the Portland TFAW.
Meet CBLDF Liberty Annual 2013 contributors Jeremy Atkins (Charles de Ghoul), Ron Chan (Plants vs. Zombies), Emi Lenox (EmiTown), Michelle Madsen (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Dave Stewart (Hellboy), and Paul Tobin (Bandette), and learn how you can join the CBLDF for as little as $25! Complimentary food and beer (for those 21+ with valid ID) provided.
Everyone has a story to tell, but what happens when a story gets taken away from its creator? The CBLDF Liberty Annual 2013 looks at the creative costs of censorship, either through outside interference, or through more private forms. All proceeds from this book benefit the important First Amendment work of the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, who’ve been fighting censorship in comics for over 25 years!
Special bonus: Courtesy of Dark Horse Comics, attendees at this event only who sign up for CBLDF membership at the $50-$249 level will receive a Lone Wolf and Cub Volume 1 Limited Edition hardcover, while supplies last. Attendees who sign up for CBLDF membership at the $250 or greater level will receive a Give Me Liberty hardcover, signed by Frank Miller and Dave Gibbons, also while supplies last. These bonuses are in addition to the CBLDF’s generous incentive rewards for membership.
“It is easy to take our First Amendment Rights for granted. Yet, historic and present day events alike underscore how important it is that everyone does their part to protect the First Amendment Rights of the comics community, and of Americans as a whole,” said TFAW Vice President and CBLDF Board Member Andrew McIntire. “This is why we have supported the CBLDF for years, furthered our commitment as a corporate member, and why we are asking our friends in Portland to come out and join us in supporting the important work of the CBLDF by becoming members.”
Published by Image Comics and edited by Dark Horse Editor-in-Chief Scott Allie, the CBLDF Liberty Annual 2013 contains 48 pages of all-new stories and also features the talents of Richard Corben (Creepy), Tim Seeley (Revival), Art Baltazar and Franco (Itty Bitty Hellboy), and more.

Mike Mignola is best known as the multiple award-winning creator, writer, and artist of “B.P.R.D.” and “Hellboy,” but has fostered several other projects like “The Amazing Screw-On Head” and “Baltimore” with Christopher Golden. Although he began working as a professional cartoonist in the early 1980s, drawing ‘a little bit of everything for just about everybody’ – including characters like Batman and Wolverine – he was also a production designer on the Disney film “Atlantis: The Lost Empire.” Mignola also acted as a visual consultant to Guillermo del Toro on “Blade 2″ and the film versions of Hellboy, which were broadly adapted by del Toro from the original comic series. Mike Mignola currently lives in southern California with his wife, daughter, and cat.
