The Art of Hell, Boy

HellboyAdmittedly, Hellboy (2004) and Hellboy II (2008) are not my favorite Guillermo del Toro movies. Not that the tale about a demon, raised from infancy after being conjured by and rescued from the Nazis, who grows up to become a defender against the forces of darkness, is lousy and/or dumb. But it’s the Hellboy character itself that seems pretty darn goofy, what with him being all red, having a tail and a crushing Hand of Doom, and what appears to be hockey pucks or soup cans stuck to his forehead. Yeah, I know Guillermo del Toro didn’t create Hellboy, artist/writer Mike Mignola did. But I don’t read comic books as I can never figure out where to plug ’em in.

The one thing I do like, however, are the new Hellboy posters being put up for public grab on one of my fav websites, Mondo, a collectible art boutique in Texas. Part of Mondo’s Director Series, these limited edition prints go up for sale on Friday, January 28, 2011 at a random time, which makes it great for the regular fan to get a shot at ’em  instead of greedy ass collectors who snap ’em up for re-sale.

HellboyHere’s what you need to know: The 24×36 prints are $45 each. Hellboy, which was illustrated by Florian Bertmer, is limited to 240 prints. Hellboy II, designed by Ken Taylor, is limited to a 360 print run. So when do they specifically go on sale? Geez, you’re needy. Follow Mondo on Twitter™ for the on-sale announcement.

Remain vigil citizen, or you’ll miss out like you did when Mondo put the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle posters up for grabs, selling out in near record time. Remember how you cried yourself to sleep over that tragic disappointment? Your mom blogged that you were blubbering like someone just spit in your ice cream. There’s no shame in that. Just do the right thing for yourself and snag one of these cool posters before someone who likes to spit in ice cream does.
