Dark Horse Celebrates the 25th Anniversary of Hellboy

Dark Horse Celebrates the 25th Anniversary of Hellboy
In 1993, legendary 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. Co-published by Dark Horse Comics, this story introduced one of the most beloved comic book characters in history and launched what would become known as the Mignolaverse — the strange, shared universe of comic books and graphic novels, comprised of acclaimed titles including Hellboy and the B.P.R.D., Abe Sapien, B.P.R.D., Frankenstein Underground, Lobster Johnson, The Visitor: How and Why He Stayed and Witchfinder. 25 years later, Mignola returned as a Special Guest to San Diego Comic-Con International, where the convention celebrated the anniversary of that first 4-page story by including the historic story in their 2018 Souvenir Book. The story, which previously had been published with colors by acclaimed colorist Matt Hollingsworth, is now colored by Eisner Award-winning colorist and longtime Mignola collaborator Dave Stewart and appeared alongside an all new interview with Mignola and Jed W. Keith. Not to be undone, Dark Horse Comics is announcing three new Mignolaverse comic books, which further expand and enrich the epic story that has been entertaining fans around the world for two and a half decades.

Slain: Back From Hell Rocks The Switch

Slain Back from Hell for the Nintendo Switch 02
Why do people still buy DVDs? Why do folks still read actual comic books? Why would a game company put out a physical version of a game people already downloaded? PEOPLE LIKE TO OWN THINGS THAT ARE REAL!! Every time your computer turns dumb and won't work anymore, more often than not, what happens to all your pictures? Unless they are online somewhere, they are gone forever. There's something to be said for owning a real, touchable, physical item. Most of the time, you can control when it goes away. Just my 2 cents!

You've heard of games that are run and gun? This one is dash and decapitate!

SDCC 2018: Netflix Teases Stranger Things Season 3 with a Trip to the Mall

Netflix Stranger Things Season 3 Starcourt Mall Teaser
The MALL!! ..a phenomenon and an enigma to kids in Brooklyn when the first glorious cathedrals to consumerism first popped up. We didn't get "it" at first, but we sought out the only mall-like location in our city and after a time, it all made sense. Of course, after moving to New Jersey where there was absolutely nothing else to do, it made even more sense! No matter where you were raised, we probably all have odd mall stories, some including Frank Gorshin (Classic TV Batman's Riddler) chain smoking at a signing in the comic shop, or your friends hustling non-locals at the arcade on Street Fighter, pronouncing at the start of the second match "I'm now going to beat you by just throwing you over and over." The mall is forever burned my memory and, apparently, it made an impression on the Stranger Things crew as well..
