Meet Zachary, a little guy dreamt of meeting Mike Mignola's comic creation Hellboy and becoming a 'Hellboy' himself. Normally such hopes would be responded to by an adult advising what is real, but this was a Make-A-Wish - and with those anything can happen.
As Zachary, fellow wish recipient Caleb and their families visited the team at Spectural Motion, the newest member of the B.P.R.D. had his dream come true in the most amazing of ways. Actual Hellboy actor Ron Perlman, reprised his hit-role as the supernatural hero so Zachary could 'meet' his hero.
For a celebrity to give up their time is one thing, for a celeb to sit in a chair undergoing extensive make-up and wardrobe changes is another - but Ron didn't stop there. He brought burgers, shakes and fries for the two kids, their families and the entire team at Spectural Motion to ensure the whole day was a complete success for everyone involved, Caleb and Zachary especially. Now that's a great guy.
If this doesn't underscore the reason we need a comics medium that generates material people can draw both fun and strength from, I don't know what does. 'Good on ya's' go to all parties involved and especially Caleb and Zachary themselves. What an awesome wish made true by great people helping great people.
