Righto - Have just decided to get in on this Hellboy blog campaign, so I'm gonna be updating this as often as I can with whatever new developments hit the marketing and/or viral campaigns (although I guess they're one and the same thing).
As well as that, expect a healthy amount of procrastinating, conjecture and pure speculation while we wait for the ARG to throw us a frickin' bone!
This blog will be keeping track of the marketing and the viral game for Hellboy 2, so check back often for updates - and in case you miss something, there's an archive of previous posts at the bottom of this column.
(Any pictures you see here can be saved to your desktop, and opening them from there will give you access to much bigger versions.)
An abomination hath been done, The wheels of motion turned and spun, A quarter moon past, Time runneth fast, Our countdown already begun.
Rise up prepare to act, The future is bleak in fact, Unite as one, Oh earthly son, Protect the ancient pact
From light they often make stone, Time for us all to atone, Years of abuse, From persons obtuse, One nine of a month yet unknown.
A very dark day in our prime, Our planet is covered in grime, Pray hear our concern, All ye to learn, Five plus one less than a dime.
Four out of twelve leads the way, Twenty less one points the day, Of primary concern, For thou to learn, Fine creatures are dismay.
Limerick 6 (sent via email to HETFET members):
Dare to "find the clues", Unfold the path you choose, Thinking minds, Combining Rhymes, Hetfet brings this news.
Limerick 7 (sent via email to HETFET members, lowercase is deliberate):
cats are also called these, a fancier term if you please, follow your mind, all work in kind, and find it with relative ease.
Limerick 8 (sent to superherohype.com):
THE SECRET DEVICE before you now a mystery no doubt, Flashing lights and spinning rings, what is it all about? Adventure down this path you've found, Searching for clues, For every time you crack the lock, Rewards are there for you. This journey gives you more than fun, The clever folk will find, For some who reach the very end, A might gift in kind. A journey beyond cyberspace, The lucky II will see, Much more than they imagine, Bull and demon destiny. Support the fey who need your help, To keep the peace intact, Beware of those not of their word, Protect the ancient pact.
