3.5 starsI ve read very little about Hellboy in the past maybe 1 or 2 volumes, so I m not exactly an expert on Mignola s creation In fact, the majority of what I think I know about Hellboy comes from the movies So you can basically take my review with a grain of salt.The hardest thing for me to overcome was the artwork.BUT.Ever since I read Hawkeye My Life as a Weapon, I ve been trying to becometolerant when it comes to graphic novels that don t have what I consider to be traditional 3.5 starsI ve read very little about Hellboy in the past maybe 1 or 2 volumes, so I m not exactly an expert on Mignola s creation In fact, the majority of what I think I know about Hellboy comes from the movies So you can basically take my review with a grain of salt.The hardest thing for me to overcome was the artwork.BUT.Ever since I read Hawkeye My Life as a Weapon, I ve been trying to becometolerant when it comes to graphic novels that don t have what I consider to be traditionally nice art See I m growing up Maturing, if you will.And I have to ad

I loved this book as I was reading it In some ways, it reminds me of the best of Hellboy The dreamlike narrative, the eerie and half glimpsed settings, the use of supernatural elements and way Mignola weaves in folklore and literature, all things that I m always happy to see in Hellboy And the art is as good as I ve ever seen Mignola s His style doesn t work for everything, but it s perfect for something like Hellboy But after the fact, I realized that I didn t re
Hellboy is actually in hell for this story, which had Hellboy creator Mike Mignola return to write and illustrate, and it serves as an odd sort of origin family tale for our anti hero But the focus of this comic wason mood than plot It had an ever present muted macabre feeling to it, aided by the stunningly beautifully minimalist art and equally beautiful coloring work, a lot of classic literary illusions from Shakespeare to Milton to Dickens, and only an ethereal whisper thin thread Hellboy is actually in hell for this story, which had Hellboy creator Mike Mignola return to write and illustrate, and it serves as an odd sort of origin family tale for our anti hero But the focus of this comic wason mood than plot It had an ever present muted macabre feeling to it, aided by the stunningly beautifully minimalist art and equally beautiful coloring work, a lot of classic literary illusio
