Hellboy Quotes + Gunfire = Funny Hellboy Quotes?

Published by at 9:18 am under Comedy,Comic Books,Marketing

The Hellboy Quote Generator is out, although it has been technically unreliable. On a comedy scale of 1 to 10, I’d give this a 5: amusing but uneven. It’s a well-done piece of viral advertising, though. (“Let me put this to you as delicately as I can.” *BANG*)

Hellboy interests me, mainly because its writing is decent but widely thought to be worth ripping off.  For example, one recurring critique of Brian Clevinger’s Atomic Robo is that “Atomic Robo is a robotic Hellboy!” I don’t regularly read either series, but the comparison seems counterintuitive to me mainly because Hellboy’s hook is that the genre isn’t light sci-fi and involves a lot of planar travel.  I would, however, criticize both series for using the ultimate cliche setting: WWII.

I’ll leave you with this parting thought.

C’mon. You’d have to be crazy to give up horns like those.
