Hello everyone! My name is Eva, and I am the new Teen Librarian at CLP-Knoxville. My favorite color is blue, my favorite book is Jane Eyre, and my favorite superhero is Hellboy.
So who exactly is this Hellboycharacter, you ask? A giant, red demon withfiled-off horns, a right hand made of stone, and a general dislike for any creature or evil genius that that threatens humankind. He is member of B.P.R.D, or the Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense. This group includes Liz Sherman, a woman with pyrokinetic abilities that she sometimes has trouble controlling; Abe Sapien, a human-amphibian hybrid witha talent for telepathy; and many other characters with special powers.
The Hellboy character was created by Mike Mignola in 1993, and is featured in many Dark Horse Comics graphic novel series, including Hellboy, Weird Tales, and B.P.R.D. There is also an animated series!
The first Hellboy movie (based on the graphic novel Hellboy: Seed of Destruction), was released back in 2004. After four long years of waiting, Hellboy II: The Golden Army, is going to be released in theaters on Friday, July 11th! Finally!
