I'll be all over the net for the next couple of days, at least it seems that way from the number of interviews I've given. Wizard, IGN, Comic Book Resources, QuickStop and of course another party with the geeks at COMIC BOOK GEEK SPEAK Episode 220. Hey, Deemer! Read the freakin' Hellboy TPBs! Mike Mignola will also be on UGO and G4 Tech TV.
Granted, most of my DVDs were released before the Internet became so user friendly - although I used to be a participant in the Rescue Rangers list by Stephanie da Silva before the net had pictures. But I've never promoted a project like I have this one.
If you've been paying attention, you'll know its because the chance to do future Hellboys depends on the sale of these first two. That means a lot to me. I don't get a bonus if this sells over a certain amount... although that isn't a half bad idea. Hmmn, haven't signed a contract yet. I need to give my agent a call. Where was I?
Oh yeah, why more are important to me. Its not employment, I've already fielded offers on a couple of amazing projects. It's because I love working in the world of Hellboy and we're not done yet.
We'll know if the DVD is a success by the end of the week but that doesn't mean a green light. I assume we'll have a decision by the time Mike and I appear at the New York Comic Con with a special preview of Hellboy: Blood and Iron. But I'm already writing number three and I'm about 15 minutes into it and I think you guys are going to go crazy. In a good way.
Once it's announced, I'll start blogging about it. I try to follow the creative process even more closely than I did the first time around from idea to treatment and script to music and mix. We know what we're getting into this time so I'm better prepared to give you a good perspective on it.
In the meantime, thank you for your support. Buy soon and buy often. And if you're going to be at the NYCC I have four words for you: Get in line early. --Tad
