Dark Horse Reveals ‘Hellboy’ Omnibus Box Set With Stunning Slipcase Art By Mike Mignola
Fresh on the heels of the Mike Mignola documentary launching its Kickstarter, Dark Horse Comics has announced a Cthulhu-sized omnibus box set of the writer/artist’s first four Hellboy volumes: Seed of Destruction, Strange Places, The Wild Hunt, and Hellboy in Hell. Until now, each book was only available as a separate volume.
The collection, which goes on sale this fall, comes with some gorgeous slipcase artwork (see above) drawn by Mignola himself. The collage-like piece features Hellboy and some of his most iconic adversaries and supporting characters like the Ogdru Jahad, Rasputin, Herman von Klempt, and Lobster Johnson — among others.
“It is kind of exciting to see those four books in one big, heavy lump,” Mignola exclusively tells Forbes Entertainment. “It’s a body of work I’m pretty proud of, and it’s right to have them all together like that.”
“The box set makes [for] a great gift and is such a perfect presentation of the four main Hellboy books,” adds Dark Horse editor Katii O'Brien. “For the readers who might already have those volumes, the print is a beautiful way to get the slipcase art!”
If you just want the artwork (entitled “Hellboy: His Life and Times”), Dark Horse Direct is offering it as a limited edition and hand-numbered print measuring 24” x 18”. Only 300 will be available, with supplies costing $49.95 a pop. You can pre-order one here.
