Content Graphic Novel Club- Hellboy Vol. 1: Seed of Destruction
With this month's pick timed to coincide with Halloween, Content's Graphic Novel Book Club continues in November with HELLBOY, VOL 1: SEED OF DESTRUCTION by Mike Mignola. The basis of director Guillermo del Toro's blockbuster films, Hellboy is one of the most celebrated comics series in recent years. The ultimate artists' artist and a great storyteller whose work is in turns haunting, hilarious, and spellbinding. Mike Mignola has won numerous awards in the comics industry and beyond.
"Among superheroes, Hellboy ranks among the darkest and the toughest; ideally suited to combat the dark powers he battles so fiercely. Created by Mike Mignola in 1994 and published by Dark Horse Comics, Hellboy has become a fantasy staple. When strangeness threatens to engulf the world, a strange man will come to save it. Sent to investigate a mystery with supernatural overtones, Hellboy discovers the secrets of his own origins, and his link to the Nazi occultists who promised Hitler a final solution in the form of a demonic avatar."
Hosted by our very own David Wolff, this group is fun and accessible for adventurous readers who are curious about the genre, and interesting for even the most die-hard fans.
