The Pacific Northwest is famous for wine and a thriving comic book community. Several major comic writers, artists and publishers call this region home.
Now Dark Horse Comics is conjuring up a wine based on one their greatest supernatural heroes just in time for Halloween.
Hellboy, the wine?
Now you can raise a toast to this demonic hero.

Hellboy is a long running comic book series created by legendary Mike Mignola which inspired two major films directed by Guillermo del Toro. The new wine will be available on Halloween and is available for pre-order now.
“I can’t imagine a more fitting drink to both celebrate Mike Mignola‘s creative legacy and honor his most famous creation,” said Dark Horse Comics President Mike Richardson. “And it’s only fitting that the first time that fans can raise a glass of Hellboy Reserve Pinot Noir will be on Halloween.”
“We are thrilled to be collaborating with Dark Horse Comics on the special Hellboy wine,“ said Gary Mortensen, President of Stoller Family Estate. “It’s quite an honor to share our wine with such a passionate fan base and to be associated with the amazingly iconic character Hellboy.”
