    Mike Mignola appears at Meltdown Comics on Saturday March 22nd at 2:00 pm to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of HELLBOY!

    Press Release:

    March 2014 marks the twentieth anniversary of Mike Mignola’s career-defining release of Hellboy: Seed of Destruction #1. After the character’s somewhat humble beginnings as 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.”

    To celebrate, Dark Horse Comics is proclaiming March 22, 2014 as “Hellboy Day,” with events happening in comic shops around the country! Dark Horse is inviting our retail partners to celebrate with us, by offering up exclusive promotional materials, as well as ordering discounts on all Hellboy and BPRD backlist titles.

    Additionally, Dark Horse will produce 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, Fabio Moon, and R. Sikoryak!

    Dark Horse is also pleased to announce that Meltdown Comics and Collectibles in West Hollywood, CA will be hosting Mike Mignola on March 22! Look for more details to come on the event.

    CAPS Launches Stan & Sharon Sakai Benefit Auction on March 6th

    sakai

    **UPDATE** Auctions begin TODAY on eBay starting at 5PM PST/8PM EST at the link!!

    Press Release:

    CAPS TO LAUNCH ART AUCTION FEATURING ORIGINAL WORKS BY MATT GROENING, JACK DAVIS, MIKE MIGNOLA, J. SCOTT CAMPBELL, ADAM HUGHES AND HUNDREDS MORE TO BENEFIT FELLOW CARTOONIST STAN SAKAI AND FAMILY

    On Thursday, March 6, 2014, Southern California’s CAPS, the Comic Art Professional Society, will launch an ongoing series of eBay auctions of original comic art. Its goal is to raise funds for medical care for Sharon Sakai, the wife of respected cartoonist and longtime CAPS member Stan Sakai, creator of the samurai rabbit USAGI YOJIMBO. Sharon has been battling a debilitating brain tumor for some time; after an extended hospital stay and convalescence, she is currently at home, but her condition requires 24-hour care and medicine that costs more than the Sakai’s insurance covers. 100% of the proceeds of these auctions will go directly to Stan and Sharon Sakai to help pay their ongoing medical expenses.

    Known for his exquisite work with female characters, J. Scott Campbell created this wonderful ink drawing to benefit Sharon & Stan Sakai in the CAPS auction.

    Thursday, December 12, 2013

    Doors at 7:00pm, show at 7:30pm

    Details
    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.

    Mike Mignola’s Hellboy Gets an Artist Edition from IDW

    July 18, 2013 by  
    Filed under Comic Books, Everything Else

    HELLBOY_COVER_2Press Release:

    Mike Mignola’s Hellboy, one of the best-loved comic creations of the past two decades, will be showcased in the acclaimed Artist’s Edition format from IDW! Mignola’s Hellboy, the star of comics and screen, will be a welcome addition to the rapidly growing Artist’s Edition library, IDW’s award-winning imprint. Featuring scans of original art in their rawest form, Artist’s Editions enable fans to experience the next best thing to owning a favorite artist’s originals.

    ”Since the beginning, I’ve been pretty much in awe of the Artist’s Edition series IDW has been doing,” said Mignola, “I’m thrilled (and actually a little honored) to have a Hellboy book appear in that series.”

    Collecting the first five issues of Hellboy in Hell, where, after making the ultimate sacrifice, Hellboy must confront what Hell has in store for him. Alone, he faces the demons of his past as Mignola reveals the dark secrets that could define Hellboy’s legacy. Additionally, several shorter works will be included in this volume.

    “I can’t thank Mike enough for allowing us to do this book,” said Artist’s Editions editor Scott Dunbier, “His stories are classics and it’s a joy to be able to pour over his art.”

    Mignola’s enduring creation has established a devoted following through the Hellboy series and the related tie-ins B.P.R.D., Abe Sapien, and Lobster Johnson, all published by Dark Horse Comics. Hellboy has been adapted into two successful major motion pictures by director Guillermo Del Toro and three animated features. Mike Mignola and Hellboy are staples of modern comics and IDW is ready to shake the Right Hand of Doom!

    What is an Artist’s Edition?

    AN ARTIST’S EDITION PRESENTS COMPLETE STORIES WITH EACH PAGE SCANNED FROM THE ACTUAL ORIGINAL ART.

    While appearing to be in black & white, each page has been scanned in COLOR to mimic as closely as possible the experience of viewing the actual original art—for example, you are able to clearly see paste-overs, blue pencils in the art, editorial notes, art corrections. Each page is printed the same size as drawn, and the paper selected is as close as possible to the original art board.
