New Limited Edition Hellboy Screen Prints Celebrate Legendary Character’s 30th Anniversary

This year marks the 30th anniversary of Mike Mignola’s legendary Hellboy Universe, and Dark Horse Direct is celebrating all year with a series of screen print reproductions showcasing the art and story of the world’s greatest paranormal investigator. The first screen prints will reproduce Mignola’s Seed of Destruction #1 and a 1994 Wake the Devil promotional comic ad and are available for pre-order now.

The first print in this commemorative series will be the gorgeous, 10-color Hellboy 30th Anniversary: Seed of Destruction #1 Screenprint. This is an exact replica of the original cover that started it all, featuring Mignola’s original art and character. Of course, this reproduction wouldn’t be complete without the special appearance of Arthur Adams’ Monkeyman and O’Brien!

With the second print, fans can jump back in time with this elegant, black-and-white Hellboy 30th Anniversary: Wake the Devil 1994 Comic Ad Screenprint. A humorous single-page comic advertising the soon-to-be Wake the Devil series, it serves as the perfect callback to the early days of Hellboy when we were just discovering who he was and his intended purpose in our world.

“For 30 years, Mike has gifted readers with masterful storytelling, unmatched in his ability to convey atmosphere and mood, and to create (or end) worlds through a drip-perfect alchemy of art and story,” says Eric Garza, the designer and content curator who is partnering with Dark Horse to celebrate Hellboy’s 30th Anniversary. “Since the very first issue, HELLBOY has seamlessly blended elements of horror, pulp adventure, gothic romance, mythology, folklore, and so much more – and often at the same time. However, what undoubtedly sinks its hooks into you first is Mike’s artwork. It is a style without compromise, unmistakably and singularly his own.”

Both prints are 24 inches wide by 36 inches tall on 100# Cougar uncoated paper and are expected to ship in August or September, 2024. These hand-numbered prints are true collectors’ pieces for devoted fans of the Hellboy saga. The 10-color Hellboy 30th Anniversary: Seed of Destruction #1 Screenprint is $75.00 and limited to 500 units, and the black-and-white Hellboy 30th Anniversary: Wake the Devil Comic Ad Screenprint is $60.00 and limited to 250 units. Fans can pre-order both screen prints now exclusively from Dark Horse Direct.
