(Y-10) Happy Hellboy Day

Today marks the 24th anniversary of the first published issue of the landmark series The Seed of Destruction and the appearance of one of my all-time favorite character, Hellboy.

But in its whole, I think this is my favorite comic book of all time, it has to do with the menagerie of monsters, villains, specters and most of all really well-developed characters, full of shades and struggles.

The mastermind behind this, still on-going story, is the brilliant writer/illustrator Mike Mignola and we thank him for wanting just to draw monsters for the rest of his career.

I had the privilege to meet Mr. Mignola in both SDCC 2007 and 2008.

He was really nice and signed whatever we put in front of him and even drew a couple of sketches for us.

Which are some of the most prized possessions in my library.

 

So, for today, I’ll get some old comic books out and stand in amazement of this rich world that Mr. Mignola so kindly has shared with us.

Happy Readings!!!!
