Hellboy Day

  • A Vault of Midnight Near You! (map)

March 23rd marks the 25th anniversary of legendary comic book creator Mike Mignola's most famous creation: thus shall we know this day, this Hellboy Day.

Stop by Vaults of Midnight Everywhere to pay your respects to the world's greatest paranormal investigator on Saturday, 3/23. In return, please enjoy a complimentary copy of an exclusive, special edition Hellboy comic book. Other swag shall pour forth from the mouth of hell itself including posters, buttons, bookmarks, and (temporary) tattoos, while supplies last.

For nearly 25 years, Mignola and a host of celebrated writers and artists have chronicled the adventures of Hellboy facing his supposed destiny as Beast of the Apocalypse, and explored the mysterious backstories of B.P.R.D. agents including Professor Trevor Bruttenholm and Abe Sapien. Hellboy's adventures have appeared in what are known as the Mignolaverse—the strange, shared universe of comic books and graphic novels, comprised of acclaimed titles including Hellboy & the B.P.R,D., Abe Sapien, B.P.R.D., Crimson Lotus, Frankenstein Underground, Lobster Johnson, The Visitor: How and Why He Stayed and Witchfinder.

Hellboy has appeared in graphic novels and comic books, prose novels and short story collections, two animated features, two live action films, toy lines and all manner of merchandise. Neil Marshall's forthcoming Hellboy film starring David Harbour, Sasha Lane, Ian McShane, Penelope Mitchell, and Milla Jovovich will be released by Lionsgate on April 12, 2019.

Whether you’re well-steeped in Mignolaverse lore or just dipping your toe in for the very first time, Hellboy Day is for you. Vault of Midnight Mignola-philes will be on hand to ferry you expertly across the river Styx into our well-stocked Hellboy section where your next reading adventure awaits.
