Ken Taylor did the Hellboy 2 poster and it will be on sale later this month.

The posters were designed with input from the man himself. “We’ve had a relationship with Guillermo for a while,” says Alamo Drafthouse CEO Tim League. “He lived here after he made Cronos and became a fixture, if you will, at the theater. Justin Ishmael, the head of Mondo, pitched him on the idea. Guillermo decided to not just approve the series but also serve as the point for approving the actual design. He’s said, ‘Yes, I like that,’ or ‘No, that doesn’t look too much like Ron Perlman,’ or whatever.”
