As we told you last week, tomorrow is one of the greatest holidays in the land: Hellboy Day! Mike Mignola’s seminal comic book series is celebrating its twentieth (!) anniversary, and Dark Horse wants to commemorate the event in style by holding an international celebration of all things Hellboy at comic book shops across the land. Well, tomorrow is the big day, and much like those kids in the Disneyland commercials, we’re too excited to sleep (even though it’s midday; bear with me). So, rather than rest on our laurels and stare at the cruel, slow-as-molasses hands of the clock until it strikes midnight, we’re kicking off the Hellboy Day celebration a little bit early with a hellaciously rad giveaway!
Five (5) grand prize winners will receive a hardcover copy of Hellboy: The First Twenty Years and a limited edition Hellboy-themed chocolate bar created by chocolatier Richard Ruskell exclusively for Hellboy Day.
Fifteen (15) runner-ups will receive a copy of Hellboy: The First Twenty Years, but no chocolate bar. But maybe if you attend the Hellboy Day event at Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles, you’ll be able to snag one.
In order to enter to win, you must do the following:
1) Comment below with your favorite Hellboy story or memory. (Note: when prompted by the comment box, please supply a valid e-mail address so we can contact you if you win)
2) Be a legal U.S. resident. Sorry, international friends, but them’s the breaks.
Winners will be selected by Wednesday, March 26th and notified via e-mail, so make sure you enter by midnight on Tuesday, March 25th, 2014 for a chance to win. Honestly, though, we’re having Mike Mignola on the Nerdist Podcast on April 7th, so no matter how this contest shakes out, we all win.
You’ve got your marching orders, hellions! Get commenting and make sure to find out how you can celebrate all things Hellboy tomorrow for Hellboy Day!
