Whew. Hellboy = Good! 

I just went to a matinee of Hellboy, and really liked it. I'd like to shake Guillermo del Toro's hand, I wasn't sure anyone could pull off making the comic work as a movie, but he did it just fine. I liked the pacing-- there was plenty of action without trying to make it into a "thrill ride". The characterization was well done and gave the movie a heart. What really makes me happy is that this is one of the few cases where a noncomics reader might go looking for the source material after liking the movie, and they're going to find some excellent comics waiting for them.

And extra cool points to the film for using the logo that Kevin Nowlan designed!
