Witchfinder 3? Sep. 13th, 2009 @ 02:54 pm
Does anyone know what's up with Witchfinder #3? It was supposed to come out on 2 September, but the Dark Horse page says it's currently unavailable. I thought maybe they pushed the release date back, but I can't even find it on TFAW as a pre-order.

Ideas? Anyone heard anything?

The Wild Hunt Sep. 12th, 2009 @ 07:05 pm
So, I was wondering... did anyone read The Wild Hunt #6 yet? Any thoughts? Speculations?

This will probably be a spoilerish discussion, so any spoilers should be labeled.

Hellboy, BPRD, and Abe Sapien: the Drowning together won five Eisner Awards this year.

Comics' Oscars Recognize Superheroes, Hellboys, and Deja Vu

couple of questions Jul. 30th, 2009 @ 10:44 pm
These might be completely idle and speculative questions, but I thought I'd see whether people with a deeper knowledge of the comics / rest of the franchise / mythology might have some insight.

- Hellboy was fully adult when he joined the BPRD in 1952, eight years after he came to earth. In "Pancakes", at the age of two, he appears to be a child of 6 or 8 years, and not too much bigger than he looked when he appeared on earth. Does anybody know / have a theory on how he grew in the years between? Like, did he go through all of adolescence in one year, and how old (earth years) might he have been at that point?

-I think I remember reading that Hellboy's father (biological) was a marquis of hell, but I can't remember where. I just re-read "The Chained Coffin" and saw that he referred to himself as "God of Babylon". I said to myself, "oh, he's Baal!", and then I realized that I am hopelessly ignorant on Babylonian mythology, and Baal is a general term that could refer to any local spirit. I guess my question is, has there been any more precise information given as to the status/identity of Hellboy's father? And for a more focused but much more idle speculation, given the general representation of Baal(s) in Christian mythology, the goat-like appearance, the way he sweet-talks Hellboy's mother... could it be said that Hellboy is descended from a fertility god? 0.0``` (Not to hopelessly conflate comic-verse with movie-verse, but wouldn't THAT explain why Liz got pregnant -- hah)

BPRD: A Hellboy RPG (With permission from Rye) Jul. 22nd, 2009 @ 11:15 pm
Thank you again Rye. I am advertising my Hellboy RPG that's been going strong for a year, July 10th was our anniversary. We are in the middle of a activity check that ends on Monday but we are already in need of some canon and of course we love originals.

The person who did the character concept designs for the Hellboy Animated movies has a gallery on DeviantArt. He has just a few pieces up there, but it's worth checking out to see how his concepts of Hellboy and Abe compare with their eventual appearances (his version of Hellboy has freckles! And eyebrows.)

» question about Roger
I dunno why this suddenly became a burning question in my mind, but...

Does Roger eat and drink? I remember him being pictured as holding a glass of wine in BPRD: Spirit of Venice, but I don't remember whether it appeared he was actually drinking it or not.
Does he maybe... I don't know, hook up to the power grid and get a recharge once in a while? Has he ever been shown to be bleeding? I guess I have been wondering just how human his clay body really is.
