Hellboy as portrayed by Hellboy in the Mike Mignola comic book series "Hellboy."
If you are a monster fan and you aren't reading Mignola's epic "Hellboy," then you aren't really a monster fan now are you?
Come on, be honest. Why else would you deny yourself one of the best monster related stories in any medium?
If you have only allowed yourself the pleasure of Guillermo Del Toro's movie "Hellboy," sadly you are still missing out. For my money there is only on true Hellboy, and he only appears in comic form.
The first time I read Hellboy I was on vacation with my wife and son, and we were all out on my parents boat. I finished the two graphic novels I had brought with me, and then waited anxiously to get back to land so I could run to the nearest bookstore and get some more. What an amazing tale.
I also did a color version of this image, which you can check out here if you are so inclined.
Unfortunately I had very little time to dedicate to today's image, having been mostly sick and out of town this weekend, so my tribute to Mignola's H.B. isn't quite the way I envisioned it... but I wanted to be sure to at least give you a little something.
