For the first time, I will be attending C2E2 in Chicago this year, and one booth on my must-visit list is that of Dark Horse. Some news came in tonight that following the success of 2016’s Star Trek: The Next Generation Adult Coloring Book and Star Trek: The Original Series Adult Coloring Book, Dark Horse will be launching two more volumes for Star Trek fans to enjoy: Star Trek: The Original Series Adult Coloring Book—Where No Man Has Gone Before and Star Trek: The Next Generation Adult Coloring Book—Continuing Missions. Personally, I may have to get the latter, as the phrase "Darmok and Jalad at Tanagra" is now in my head once more...

Happy... HELLBOY Day? Yes, #HellboyDay

Twenty years ago today, Dark Horse Comics released Mike Mignola's HELLBOY: SEED OF DESTRUCTION #1. The character, which first appeared in an eight-page story as part of a Dark Horse Comic-Con Special, would go on to become a true pop-culture icon celebrated by children and parents alike [Ed - perhaps a little stretch there!] spawning feature films, animation and toys. If you can make it out to a local comic shop today, you'll find that HELLBOY DAY is being celebrated with special merchandise and events (participating store list) and the release of the hardcover book, HELLBOY: THE FIRST 20 YEARS. Additionally, Sideshow Collectibles is releasing a HELLBOY Premium Format Figure this August, limited to just 1,500 pieces.

Two STAR WARS related stories in one day? That's a bit different here on The Rock Father, but I can't complain (here's the first one), as The Force is strong here at Rock Father HQ, and has been since the release of STAR WARS back in 1977. If you haven't heard, Disney announced today that the STAR WARS Comic Books will be returning to MARVEL Comics in 2015 after being handled by the folks at Dark Horse for more than two decades. It was the MARVEL books that I first experienced as a kid in the late 70s and early 80s, but it was the great treatment by Dark Horse that really helped place STAR WARS back on the map in the 1990s. But, with MARVEL being owned by Disney, a lot of people have seen this move coming since it was announced that Disney bought Lucasfilm back in 2012.
