In 1991, comic book writer-artist Mike Mignola simply wanted to draw a monster for a comic convention program. Yet by adding the name HELLBOY to the creature's belt, Mignola set in motion the creation of one of the most iconic superhero comics to ever be printed. Since Hellboy's first appearance in 1993, the artistic style and storytelling of Mignola has influenced fan and artist alike. These include your hosts Mark David Christenson and Kait Thompson, who have chosen to dedicate an entire show to the half-demon hero.

BOoM! Awwwwwww CraaaaaaaaaaAAAP A HELLBOY POOOOOODCAAAAAST

*Hellboy 2004 Broom Voice* What is it that makes a good podcast a good podcast? Is it their content — the way things start? Or is it something else, something harder to describe?

I didn’t find “‘Aw... Crap’, a Hellboy Podcast”, they found me. Being an amateur artist on Instagram means I use a hell of a lot of hashtags to get noticed and I got a like and a follow after a quick doodle in excitement for the 2019 movie. I then looked them up on Spotify and quickly fell in love.

From MDC stumbling over words honestly to Kait giving amazing insights to the artist vision of Mignola. Listening to these episodes is more than finally having friends who care about Hellboy as much as I do, these are beautiful sincere people who I know Hellboy him self would love to sit down and have some drinks with them.

This is the best Hellboy podcast out there, because more than any other podcast, these guys care about their listeners as much as they care about their podcast. Thank you for all of the hard work guys, I love you!

Boom! What a podcast!

Having just recently gotten into Hellboy myself, I was so eager to find a podcast or a YouTube series that would discuss the series as I was moving through it. And at first, I was disheartened at the lack of Hellboy discussion content that existed out there in the world. And then I stumbled upon Aw Crap, A Hellboy Podcast. Our favorite Crappers have filled that void so completely and perfectly for me, and I’m sure for everyone else that has been listening along. I’m always a little awkward when it comes to leaving reviews, because I normally don’t leave reviews for things unless I really enjoy them, so I kind of stumble along until I reach a good stopping point. The good stopping point here? Thanking Mark and Kait for bringing so much joy and depth to my Hellboy reading, and for making me laugh and appreciate this glorious four-color world more than I ever thought I could.
