Since its debut in 2016, the “Hellboy Winter Special” has become an annual tradition for Mike Mignola’s Hellboy Universe.

This is a spoiler-free review, but for those wondering, there is one scene after the credits, which is a red herring so astonishing that it will have memeologists discussing it for years to come. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse has three credited directors: Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman. Small wonder it feels like many […]
