Hellboy Merchandising !14 février 2008
[ENGLISH] Dark Horse Comics is bringing forward a new presentation of some classic merchandise based on the award-winning graphic novels by Mike Mignola. Aimed at the newer Hellboy collector, these items are just in time for the summer season. A special set featuring some of the graphic story’s biggest fan favorites will hit the shelves this June. Hellboy, Abe Sapien, and Lobster Johnson will be boxed as a three- pack of PVC figures. Sculpted from original designs by Mike Mignola, and personally approved by him at each phase of their development, these outstanding figures reprise the sculptures originally presented in the out-of-print “long box” set of Hellboy PVC characters. It is value-priced at $14.99 for the set.**
The Hellboy PVC figure will also be available in a new book-and-figure boxed set that will feature a special new edition of the graphic novel that started it all, Seed of Destruction. This new hardcover edition will be in a special 7.5” x 5” size, and will sport new cover art created by Mignola expressly for this version. Packaged in a sturdy double- sided window box casing, the package is priced at $24.99 for the set and will be available on June 4, 2008.
Additionally in June, a new Hellboy ceramic coffee mug is on its way, with a brand-new Mignola design in full color ready to confront you as you enjoy your favorite beverage. Steaming coffee or cocoa adds a special effect at no extra charge.
Dark Horse is currently working with Mignola on a new series of art-based T-shirt designs, which should also be available this spring.
**All Dark Horse PVC figures are composed of non-phthalate PVC and are safety-tested to international standards.
