Preview – Hellboy: Into the Silent Sea

Happy Halloween! Dark Horse is celebrating the day with the first look at Mike Mignola and Gary Gianni’s Hellboy: Into the Silent Sea.

Hero Initiative and Dark Horse Comics Unveil ‘The HELLBOY 100’

The Hero Initiative, the first-ever federally chartered not-for-profit corporation dedicated strictly to helping comic book creators in need, unveiled its latest project today: The HELLBOY 100, in collaboration with Hellboy creator Mike Mignola and Dark Horse Comics. To create the HELLBOY 100, Dark Horse Comics printed 100+ blank covers of the landmark first issue of Hellboy & the BPRD: 1952, written by Mignola and John Arcudi and featuring the art of Alex Maleev with colors by Dave Stewart.

The Hero Initiative then commissioned internationally renowned comic book artists to do an original drawing on each cover, including Gabriel Bá, John Cassaday, Fábio Moon, Eric Powell, Bill Sienkiewicz and Mignola himself. The originals will be auctioned off via eBay.com at the rate of approximately 10 per week for 10 weeks. Both hardcover and softcover editions of a book collecting all the covers will published by Dark Horse Comics in September, 2015.

Mike Mignola’s infernal creation is getting a lot of love lately: with several single issues and trades either just released or about to be released, all featuring Red and his family and friends (and enemies of course) now is a good time to dip your toes in the B.P.R.D. universe. Not that it’s ever a bad time for Hellboy, seeing as how Dark Horse starts a new mini-series every few months. But 2013’s been an especially prolific year for the big guy.

Top Picks in Comics for 4/6/11

Hello again my friends! I am your humble and awesome host, Anthony Silva of Comic Issues fame, back again with my week of reviews for 4/6/11.  It was a light week for me, so I took the opportunity to try out a couple books that aren’t usually on my list. They say variety is the spice of life, and if that’s true then you gotta shake things up once in a while to keep it fresh. This week I got three new books that I’ve known of, but haven’t taken the leap to try out until now.

Also a little special news for you, the Comic Issues cast will be attending Kingdom Con! It’s an great little gaming convention in sunny San Diego, Ca with all the heart of our last convention Anime Conji and half of the Black Butler cos-players! If you’re in the area or you’re looking for a reason to make a road trip, come by and spot us spinning dice and kickin’ some orc ass!
