We had a signing at Dark Delicacies Bookstore in Burbank, CA. It was great. Mike Mignola, Doug Jones, Chris Drake and I signed almost a hundred DVDs. (That's not Chris with us to the left, that's Gary - Gdeo from Hellboy.com) I thanked everyone for purchasing our little movie. I take no sale for granted.
The signing was great, a steady flow of people but slow enough that we could chat with everyone and Mike did plenty of sketches. A couple of people even had me do a little sketch of young Hellboy who I drew for the second Hellboy Animated comic. We also personalized the DVDs that were ordered over internet.
Mike wrote the wrong name on one DVD and ended up drawing a Hellboy on it to cover it. That person is going to be very happy. Afterwards Mike indulged in some book buying, one of his favorite things. He found some great old horror anthologies. Then he couldn't leave without getting a few Halloween sculpts. He has particular tastes in that sort of stuff but Dark Delicacies had plenty to choose from.
I'm happy you guys are enjoying the extras that Anchor Bay packed in there. Yes, there's too much of me but you still get plenty of insight. The next movie has different extras but still way more than the usual direct to video.
Meanwhile, I'm a half hour into the script of #3. It's completely different from the first two but coming along very well. So let's hope we actually get to produce the thing.
And Chris Drake is the guy to the left in the black shirt.
Oh yeah, and Mike described a new scene that Guillermo has written for HB2. That movie is going to be frickin' awesome. -- Tad
