I'm just glad he's drawing it again.

I'm more than okay with this.

Yeah, but we can't have an interesting thread if we're going to call it a day after two posts.

But comic books. Who still reads that kid's stuff anyway?

Will Guillermo Del Toro keep directing the movies?

Summoner101: Will Guillermo Del Toro keep directing the movies?


I think they'd be smarter to do a long form mini series and extend the focus beyond Hellboy to the auxiliary books and maybe swipe some ideas from Mignola's other works to pad season lengths.

The Batman/Hellboy/Starman crossover spectacular is all the right kinds of hilarious too.

A world with Mignola writing and drawing Hellboy is already interesting enough; don't be greedy.

I hope Seth MacFarlane feels the same way about Family Guy and American Dad. Cleaveland, not so much.

Come on Hellboy 3, Ron Perlman isn't getting any fresher.

There have been some great cartoons that have come out of the franchise.

I prefer B.P.R.D.

Any word on the next trade? It should be Vol. 13 or something I believe.

Tyrone Slothrop: I prefer B.P.R.D.


I am currently plugging away through the Hellboy universe. I buy one Hellboy and BPRD volume every time I go to the comic shop (just finished volume 7 of both). It is real tough for me to choose which I like better. BPRD is better in total but there are some single issue of Hellboy that blow me away. Either way, I am still waiting for more Sir Edward Grey, Witchfinder.

I haven't seen the films and it's been a few years since I read the comics. Are the movies worth it?

Decent. I was really disappointed when I saw the first one in theaters (I thought it was going to be the best movie ever) but I watched it again earlier this year and it wasnt as bad as I remember. The second one was fun.

Ron Perlman and Guillermo del Toro. Do the math.

The thing about del Toro is that he gets the comics. He LIKES the comics. He likes the universe, and he likes the characters. He gets the darkness, and the light heartedness that Mignola brings the series, and he doesn't accommodate it grudgingly, or play it up for simple camp, but enjoys it for what it is.

It just doesn't look like Hellboy if someone else is drawing.

I remember being in 6th grade and he was the guest artist for an issue for X-Force or X-Men and I remember thinking - "Man, this artist stinkst!! Where's Rob Liefield??"

I'm sure he's fantastic, but I don't know shiat about art....

That's pretty much Liefield's appeal in a nutshell. 10 year olds,

Appealing strictly to 10-year-olds is a pretty decent quality to possess for an artist whose job is drawing super heroes in comic books. In fact, that's pretty much what you're going to want to go for.

Maybe decades ago when Liefeld was just starting out, but now the cost barrier is to high for most young kids to read comics regularly.

The thing about del Toro is that he gets the comics. He LIKES the comics. He likes the universe, and he likes the characters. He gets the darkness, and the light heartedness that Mignola brings the series, and he doesn't accommodate it grudgingly, or play it up for simple camp, but enjoys it for what it is.


Perhaps the most illustrative example of this is the scene in the first movie where Hellboy notices one of the cthulu-esque baddies menacing a box full of kittens during a brawl in the subway. Other films might have played up the camp factor of that, but del Toro handled it perfectly: there was no huge "OH MY GOD NOT THE KITTENS" moment, it was more like "right, you're evil enough to hate kittens, so I am going to continue to pummel the crap out of you AND save the kittens, because that's how I roll." It was less camp and more believable, inasmuch as the concept of Hellboy is believable.

It's like this. If you're someone who would enjoy that Del Toro got the spirit and the character personalities mostly right you'll enjoy them well enough. If you're someone who freaks out because "OMG that wasn't the exact character like in the comics and they didn't meet that way in the comics!" you'll watch them, and likely secretly enjoy them, but feel the need to bash it any chance you'll get.

Personally I liked them, even though I didn't get into the comics until after the first movie.

If they make a Hellboy 3, it should just be this scene on a loop.
