In addition, two lucky commenters this month will receive a review copy of CassaStorm! One comment per day and each is worth one entry except – the first and one hundredth comments on each day will receive ten entries!
Guillermo del Toro is a genius. It takes a director of his caliber to capture the quirkiness of the comics and transfer it to the big screen. The film works on every level – funny, exciting, odd, and wonderful.
Hellboy is crude, funny, and answers to no one. He also has a soft side, as evidenced by his affinity for cats.
Who is Hellboy?
Powdered Toast Man from Just the Cheese!
PTM (real name, Jamie) knows how to push the limits without going off the edge. (Not too far, anyway.) He has a wicked sense of humor and a go for it attitude. He’s also a devoted friend and quite the innovator. Jamie, you are still one cool dude! And you keep me young.
PTM/Jamie is a newlywed, a comedian, and occasionally attacked by birds who are after his toast head.
To you I dedicate Heroes and Villains by T-Ride. (Title leads to YouTube video.)
“Cause breaking the rules that they told, Was something I had to do…”

Fan of Del Toro or the Hellboy series? Following PTM? Ever heard of T-Ride? Know the trivia answer? Excited for LD and Cassie? Think we should start betting how long it takes the featured blogger to find this post? Wondering how many clones I’m going to burn out this month…?
