Current Comic of the Month | About the Club
It may be the most unlikely comic-book-to-film adaptation of them all, but Mike Mignola's Hellboy is making the leap to the silver screen this month — just in time for Comic Club!
To celebrate the monstrous anti-hero's success, H&D Comic Club is reading the first Hellboy tale (and basis for the story of the film), Seed of Destruction. We'll also be reading The Corpse, a one-shot story widely acknowledged as one of Mignola's best Hellboy tales, when Dark Horse reprints it later this month. (Members, take note: The Corpse one-shot is now scheduled to arrive at H&D on March 24.)
Comic Club will meet to discuss Hellboy at 7:30pm on Thursday, April 8 in the H&D Game Room. We're meeting on the second Thursday of the month to give everyone a chance to see the Hellboy movie, which opens in local theaters on April 2.
Plans are underway to line up a Comic Club screening of the film. We'll keep members posted on the date and time.
