You have to wait!

I've never read the comic, but I did see the first movie recently, and I was ery entertained. It looks like they gave Del Toro a bigger budget for this one (unless they're doing more for cheaper).

This'll be the big opener for July 11, and then Dark Night will be the big opener the next weekend. 8)

I'm a HUGE fan of the comics. Mignola fascinates me with how he bases the stories on real folk tales and legends and brings a lot of cool action and humor to it. The Hellboy stuff is really phenomenal. I recommend it, if they have it at your library.

The first movie did a really nice job and it looks like they turned it up a notch on this one.

It really looks awesome!

It's not at my library. 1/2 the comics my library has were donated by me, and I never read Hellboy. :(

Haven't seen the trailer but I'm looking forward to it. The first one was great.

Me neither. It's on my "read at some point soon" list.

I did like the first movie. It makes me get all teary-eyed.

I've been a fan of the comics since they began.

The first movie was a lot of fun, and I have high hopes for this one.

They're not amazing high-brow stuff, but really fun pulpy comics. Mignola's art is the real selling point, or so I thought until I read some of the BPRD stuff that he's been doing...

I almost bought a trade in Austin but settled for some Top Ten instead.

The BPRD stories are great too. The first few trades have different artists so that's really neat.

I'm far behind but I hope to start catching up soon.

The early stuff is like Jack Kirby reworking Lovecraft in his own way.

The more recent stuff is more Mignola's own voice, and is equally as good, IMO.
