Mmm, velvety.

Continuing in a HELLBOY vein, how'd you like these apples?

Since Mike Mignola's Hellboy first hit the stands in 1993, it has become a cultural sensation, racking up a dozen Eisner Awards and inspiring numerous spinoffs, from a novel line, to video games, to feature films. Now, Dark Horse is pleased to present the comics that started it all, collected in deluxe hardcover editions. Sized at a generous 9" x 12", and handsomely bound to match The Art of Hellboy, each volume contains two complete story-arcs -- the equivalent of two full trade-paperbacks. Each volume of the Hellboy Library Edition also includes extensive supplemental materials, including previously unreleased sketches and designs.
Hellboy Volume 1 collects the first two story-arcs -- Seed of Destruction and Wake the Devil -- with the original introductions by Robert Bloch and Alan Moore. Include expanded Mignola sketchbook sections."

Ooh, baby. Thank god for the weak-assed dollar.
