Summary
Mike Mignola's Hellboy is one of the most enduringly popular comic characters of recent times. As part of the B.P.R.D (Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense), Hellboy and his comrades have investigated and combated some of the world's deadliest supernatural villains. Since the release of the Hellboy films (in 2004 and 2008), the character has achieved mainstream popularity along with the respect he was always given by the comic book community.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "As a collection of one-off stories, this is a nice volume for the Hellboy-curious to get a good sense of Mignola's flexible, occult-centric storytelling in a variety of milieus. The centerpiece has Hellboy wandering the Appalachians, where he wanders into what amounts to an old folk tale of witchy possession and other devilish backwoods Americana-horror come to life, marvelously drawn by frequent collaborator Richard Corben. Another story pits Hellboy and Abe Sapien against the ghost of Blackbeard trying to reunite with his lost skull. In addition, Mignola, who focuses primarily on writing these days, draws one here, too, which is always a treat.--Chipman, Ian Copyright 2010 Booklist"
