March 22, 2014: Hellboy Day

March 22 marks the twentieth anniversary of Mike Mignola's career-defining release of Hellboy: Seed of Destruction #1. After the character's somewhat humble beginnings in an eight-page feature in Dark Horse's San Diego Comic-Con Comics special, Seed of Destruction would begin the long life of the beloved "beast of the apocalypse."

In December, Dark Horse declared that March 22, 2014, would be Hellboy Day, with events happening in comic shops around the world!
