Giant Hands!

So apparently some in the comicsphere continue to mistakenly refer to Robot-13 as "plagiarized" from Hellboy. Speaking as a fan of both properties, I'd like to suggest these folks need to buy a good dictionary and look up the word "plagiarism." (And then they need to cancel a lot of books that aren't Robot-13.) In an industry so rampantly chock-full of examples of artistic swiping and "homages," no intelligent comics professional would mistakenly include Robot -13 in that group.
