We've been in the Oxford Dictionary since 2010.

But this is the 'international' one based out of the U.S.A.

Strange that it took them so long considering the term was first coined by an American in 1987.  Cheesy

There is an interview over on io9 about how this is due to the Hellboy movies.

In my opinion, Merriam Webster is one of the worst dictionaries I've ever encountered.
