Staff Picks (December): Hellboy — Seed Of Destruction #1 25th-Anniversary Edition

I had lunch with Mike Mignola the month he was preparing to list Hellboy: Seed of Destruction #1 in PREVIEWS way back in 1993. Would he remember that? Probably not. But I do. The excitement he and Mike Richardson had for this new project was contagious. Looking over the art for the creation and seeing the first full Hellboy issue take shape was really one of those “remember where you were” moments in my comic book collecting life. I bought a copy of Hellboy: Seed of Destruction #1 a few months later from my local comic shop and began a quarter century of enjoyment reading the exploits of the world’s greatest paranormal investigator.

This upcoming spring, on March 23, Dark Horse and Mignola will be celebrating “Hellboy Day” and the incredible universe of characters, movies, and events that have spun out of the seminal creation with a new Hellboy Seed of Destruction #1 25th-Anniversary Edition comic book. If you are a new comics fan, this is a great way for you to discover one of the true gems of the hobby and pick up a rare edition for your collection. And for fanboys and fangirls who already know Hellboy, don’t miss this opportunity for you to share your love of the character and comics with new readers and get some cool exclusive swag at your local comic shop.

Staff Picks (March): Drawing Blood Spilled Ink #1

Kevin Eastman, co-creator of the TMNT, calls this book a “totally fictional true story,” meaning that this is a fictional take on his life after having sold the TMNT franchise.
