This me and Hellboy creator like Mignola at last night's premiere in nyc for @hellboymovie . I love him and what he does so much I reached out and touched his heart, because he has touched mine and so many others with that beautiful demon Hellboy. But, that really doesn't make much sense. Except in my own self justifying brain. What happened in reality was just that I was very excited, and reached out and was caught on camera weirdly touching @artofmm. Oh, David.
