Mike Mignola at Meltdown Comics for Hellboy Day
Join us for a 20th anniversary Hellboy celebration! Creator Mike Mignola will be here, plus special guests!
Featuring Hellboy samplers, BPRD prints, chocolate Hellboys, and much MUCH more!!

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 announced March 22, 2014, would be Hellboy Day, with events happening in comic shops around the world!
In addition to a slew of exclusive giveaways, Dark Horse has produced an all-new sampler comic featuring two classic Mignola tales, “The Ghoul” and “Another Day at the Office,” as well as two new stories by Mignola, Fábio Moon, and R. Sikoryak!

Look for the Hellboy: The First 20 Years hardcover collection, on sale in comic shops everywhere on March 19! This deluxe oversized hardcover presents Mignola’s favorite covers and illustrations in gallery style, from his first drawing of Hellboy through twenty years of publishing.

COMING SOON: an art exhibition of imaginary film posters and design
Celebrating the 20th anniversary of Meltdown Comics!

[Los Angeles, CA - September 10, 2013] Meltdown Comics and NerdMelt Showroom in association with Rhyme Warp Productions Present a chamanvision production – COMING SOON: an art exhibition of imaginary film posters and design. COMING SOON is an art exhibition of all-new original artworks based on unfinished or unmade science-fiction, thriller and horror film concepts by renown film directors Stanley Kubrick, Alfred Hitchcock, Akira Kurosawa, Andrei Tarkovsky and Orson Welles. The exhibition also features artworks based on original concepts for Twin Peaks films, Walt Disney cartoons, Krazy Kat shorts and kaiju monster movies. The name of the exhibition, COMING SOON, is a play on the common term used to incite interest for upcoming film releases. The exhibition features artworks by a wide range of artists from graphic design, comics, illustration, toy design, fine art, animation, graffiti and music videos.

About the curator/director:
COMING SOON is curated and directed by Gustavo Alberto Garcia Vaca, a visual artist and writer. Gustavo works in various mediums including digital art, live painting and writing. Gustavo was inspired to create the COMING SOON art exhibition because of his interest and work in multimedia storytelling. In 2013, Gustavo was invited by LACMA to create an art project based on the Stanley Kubrick film art exhibition. For Jeff Mills’ X-102 Re-Discovers the Rings of Saturn film, Gustavo created the Epilogue sequence: X-102 was screened across museums in Europe, including the Institute of Contemporary Arts [ICA] in London. Gustavo’s writings appear in short story science fiction anthologies including The Hidden Infinities; and in comic books/manga magazines including Aoharu Young Jump published by Shueisha in Japan.
At Comic-Con San Diego, Gustavo and co-creator Kenny Keil launched their Rhyme Travelers comic book series, which has been well-received by fans and comics journalists. Gustavo also collaborates with award winning art director/designer Hideki Nakajima [their Infinite Libraries print series was awarded Best Poster Design by the New York Type Directors Club and published in Typography 30 by Abrams]. Gustavo’s artwork styles have been applied to a broad range of collaborations – with fashion brands [BEAMS T, SOPHNET., ABAHOUSE/Gasasif]; toy companies [Be@rbrick toy for Medicom Toy Corporation]; and music releases [album covers for Detroit Techno music producers Jeff Mills, Underground Resistance, Juan Atkins; drum and bass UK labels Ram Records and Creative Source; Francois K’s dub label Deep Space Media]. Gustavo has also directed art/music events for film releases by Warner Bros. and Universal. Gustavo’s artwork has appeared in venues including LACMA, MOCA, Crewest Gallery, Meltdown Gallery, the Mori Museum/Mado Lounge in Tokyo and Parco Museum, the art/pop culture museum in Shibuya, Tokyo. Gustavo, a long-time exhibiting artist at Meltdown, is honored to be celebrating Meltdown’s 20th anniversary and its ongoing commitment to comics, creativity and funk in Los Angeles. Gustavo is also honored to be working with a talented group of artists from across the creative spectrum – the process of creating original artworks for this exhibition has involved in-depth research and conceptualization with each artist. Meltdown and NerdMelt are proud to present these imaginative artworks and to pique interest and create dialogue about works by renown film directors.
