This is going to be one hell of a year for Hellboy, the antihero from the underworld first introduced in comics by creative mastermind Mike Mignola in 1994. Not only are we getting a new, R-rated feature film adaptation this April (directed by Neil Marshall), we recently reported on Dark Horse’s Hellboy: 25 Years of Covers collection arriving in July.
But that’s not the only Hellboy hardcover book planned for 2019. Dark Horse just announced another one coming down the pike: Hellboy: The Art of the Film will arrive in online and brick and mortar retailers beginning April 9th, mere days before the Hellboy movie hits theaters on April 12th. Here’s the full scoop from today’s press release:
Dark Horse Comics will publish Hellboy: The Art of the Motion Picture, a gorgeously designed hardcover book that showcases concept art and set photography to offer a behind-the-scenes look at one of the most highly anticipated films of 2019. The book offers an inside look at the creation of the film with nearly one thousand pieces of art and photography in 200 full-color pages. Hellboy: The Art of the Motion Picture will be published on April 9, 2019, ahead of the release of the Neil Marshall’s Hellboy film starring David Harbour, Sasha Lane, Ian McShane, Penelope Mitchell, Daniel Dae Kim and Milla Jovovich. Based on the acclaimed Hellboy comic books and graphic novels created by Mike Mignola, Lionsgate’s Summit Entertainment label will release Hellboy nationwide on April 12, 2019.
