Summary
Mike Mignola's character has never been more popular, especially in the wake of the long-awaited feature film, and unprecedented success in bookstores. His award-winning series Hellboy has been lauded as much by other artists as it has by award ceremonies and fans. Over the years, many of the best artists in the industry have asked if they could do a backup story just to get a chance to play with the characters and worlds Mignola has created. As Dark Horse basks in the glow of critical praise for the 2004 Hellboy motion picture, we present this lavish collection of stories.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Hellboy, the demon-turned-paranormal-investigator who recently made the move from comic books to the big screen, returns in another collection of adventures in which he tracks down phenomena ranging from a poltergeist World War II pilot to a ghostly Grand Guignol troupe. Here, as in the first Weird Tales0 BKL F 1 04, Hellboy creator Mike Mignola turns his creation over to pinch hitters including mainstream superhero artists Jim Starlin and Gene Colan, fan-favorites Jill Thompson ( Sandman, Scary Godmother0 ) and P. Craig Russell ( The Ring of the Nibelung0 ), and acclaimed alternative-comics writer-artists Craig Thompson ( Blankets0 ) and Scott Morse ( Barefoot Serpent0 ), who seldom dabble in genre work. A bonus section sports full-page illustrations of the hero by such stellar illustrators as Dave Stevens, Michael Kaluta, and Frank Cho. The package is uneven but seldom less than entertaining, and a wide range of approaches to Hellboy, from Kia Asamiya and Akira Yoshide's manga0 -like story about ghostly children to Evan Dorkin's cartoony tale of Norwegian metalheads and a baby frost giant, make for a heterogeneity most similar collections lack. --Gordon Flagg Copyright 2004 Booklist"
