As hilarious as this was and as much as I love Hellboy, you do know that the concept is that Hellboy ages differently than all of us and is actually a teenager in the movies? πŸ™‚ Either way, still great! I hope this is a running Hellboy series - he's my fave comic book character!

Alex Billington on Jul 9, 2008


I would have expected this joke to pop up in Disaster Movie.

Minic on Jul 9, 2008


Yeah, I'm aware that he ages differently. I dunno. I still thought I would run with it. The visual discrepancy of watching Ron Perlman chug Tecate, smoke stogies and wield firearms kind of cancels out the whole "teenager" vibe. Besides, what teenager wants to be called a "boy" anyway. It still kind of works. Oh, and Minic - I gotta give you points for that dig. You've been saving that one for a rainy day, haven't you? πŸ™‚ Let me know when you get your PhD in Internet Asshattery. I'll buy you a cake!

looking forward to more comics πŸ™‚

HAHA! Alex although you are correct, that has got to be one of the nerdiest fanboy comments I have ever read! Priceless!

Isn't Hellman's a brand of mayonnaise? Or did I just guess the next punchline?

jason_md2020 on Jul 9, 2008


I hadn't thought of the mayonnaise! That's good! Hmm... I was going to do a comic about Meet Dave for Friday, but maybe I should steal that! πŸ˜‰

I actually meant what I wrote with sincerity. The writers of that movie have always made up lame "spoof" jokes, and I feel this is along the same lines. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if a similar joke appeared in their latest movie. Sorry I didn't elaborate.

Minic on Jul 9, 2008


My apologies for not recognizing the compliment? I dunno - I have a pretty strong bias AGAINST the "Movie" movies, so I took it as a dig. I guess I've been a little on-edge with the comments around here. Sorry for jumping down your throat, Minic.

Tom Brazelton on Jul 10, 2008


Tom, you've never been that great with criticism. I tried reading your comic a few years ago, but just couldn't dig it because some of your views on certain movies and actors were just too harsh. I tried letting you know through the forums that I felt this was too polarizing, but found myself banned! Not cool, bro, totally not cool.

J.J. on Jul 10, 2008


Whoa, whoa, whoa. I've NEVER banned anyone from my forums for giving me feedback like "your views on movies and actors are too polarizing." I can count on ONE HAND the number of people I've ever banned and that was typically for being abusive to other forum members or failing to follow the rules established by the community. So, I'm sorry, but you're remembering you "ban" incorrectly. That aside, please explain to me what is wrong about having a strong (or polarizing) view about movies and actors? I'm not beholden to any journalistic standard that demands me to be impartial. My site is a comic and a PERSONAL blog. I let my readers know my feelings about what I like and what I don't like and I see no reason to tone it down for the minority. If it's too harsh for your sensibilities, that's your issue, not mine. How can you even make a personal assessment like "you've never been that great with criticism" if you're not visiting my site? My problem with criticism is when it is baseless. No thought, no discussion, no examples. Just a sniping "This sucks" before the critic is gone with the wind. I consistently SEEK OUT constructive criticism to make my comic better. I'm sorry, J.J. - but you are talking completely out of your ass.

Tom Brazelton on Jul 10, 2008


Wow. Way to prove the point Tom. "You're not good with criticism." "F**k you asshole". Seen it before from you, won't ever be surprised if I see it again.

Yikes on Jul 15, 2008


I don't think I proved J.J.'s point about my ability to take criticism. I illustrated why he was wrong, which is what you do when people lie about you - *especially* concerning his self-proclaimed "ban" from my forums. I didn't tell him to "f**k off" and I didn't call him an asshole, so don't put words in my mouth.
