Official Press Release

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.
