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.

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.

Web-Ad-1Sacred Fools Theater is proud to present the West Coast premiere of Philip K Dick’s “DO ANDROIDS DREAM OF ELECTRIC SHEEP?”

In the scorched earth and radioactive dust of a planet that is undergoing the death throes of World War Terminus, the remnants of humanity are faced with the choice of emigration to a bleak existence in the domes of Mars or degeneration and futility in the feudal corporate economy of Earth.  What does it mean to be alive in a world where the line between human and android is becoming blurrier every day?

DO ANDROIDS DREAM OF ELECTRIC SHEEP? is the stage adaptation of Philip K Dick’s science-noir masterpiece that follows bounty hunter Rick Deckard as he tracks and “retires” the rogue androids that may be the spear point of a full-blown robot revolution.  Award-winning director Jaime Robledo (Stoneface, Watson, Hearts Like Fists) is the only one who knows for certain who is human, and who is not, in the dystopian future that awaits audiences of all empathy levels at Sacred Fools.

The Sacred Fools Theatre Company is dedicated to creating and fostering a dynamic, empowered artistic community in Los Angeles. Notable previous productions include the Buster Keaton comedic biography Stoneface, the award-winning action-comedy Watson, the ongoing late-night episodic extravaganza Serial Killers, the award-winning musical Louis & Keely, and recent hit Neverwhere.  Run solely by the ensembled artists, the company’s smashing 17th season continues its ongoing commitment to the development of new plays and projects which challenge traditional expectations of the theatrical experience. Its goal is to produce work which invigorates, enlightens and entertains.

Comedy Central is going to Meltdown Comics for the best in stand-up comedy.

the_meltdown-blueThe cable network has handed out a series order toThe Meltdown With Jonah and Kumail from executive producer Ben Stiller, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

The series will be hosted by comedians Jonah Ray (The Soup, The Nerdist) and Kumail Nanjiani (Franklin & Bash, Portlandia, Michael & Michael Have Issues) and feature the hottest stand-up comedians performing at Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles and based on the weekly event the duo hosts at the popular venue.

Meltdown, coined the epicenter of L.A.’s alt-comedy scene in THR’s inaugural Comedy Issue this year, hosts the weekly session with Ray and Nanjiani. The event has featured some of the hottest names in comedy including Louis C.K., Robin Williams, Aziz Ansari, Donald Glover, Mark Maron and more.

Comedy Central’s adaptation will see the duo host comedians on-stage and go behind the scenes with the comics and other guest stars in the greenroom.

Ray, Nanjiani, Emily Gordon as well as Red Hour’s Stiller, Stuart Cornfeld, Debbie Liebling and Mike Rosenstein. Jonas Larsen and Toni Magon will oversee for Comedy Central.

“Of all the comedy shows on Comedy Central that are taped in the back of a comic book store, this will be the best one,” Ray, Nanjiani and Gordon said in a statement.

Added Comedy Central original programming president Kent Alterman: “I’m shocked to learn this show will be taped in the back of a comic book store, rather than a comedy store, but we’ll do it anyway.”
