April 8, 2004 Meeting

Hellboy: Seed of Destruction
by Mike Mignola & John Byrne

Hellboy: The Corpse
by Mike Mignola

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.

RESOURCES

Hellboy: Seed of Destruction is available at Heroes and Dragons now, with a retail price of $17.95.  (Comic Club members pay only $14.36 when they show their membership cards at the counter.)

Hellboy: The Corpse is expected to arrive at H&D on Wednesday, March 24 and carries a retail price of only 25.  (Sorry, but even Comic Club members will have to pay the full 25!)

Hellboy opens in local theaters on Friday, April 2.
