Summary

Summary

Dark Horse presents new editions of the entire Hellboy line with new covers, beginning with Seed of Destruction , the basis of director Guillermo del Toro's upcoming film. Hellboy is one of the most celebrated comics series in recent years. The ultimate artists' artist and a great storyteller whose work is in turns haunting, hilarious, and spellbinding. Mike Mignola has won numerous awards in the comics industry and beyond. When strangeness threatens to engulf the world, a strange man will come to save it. Sent to investigate a mystery with supernatural overtones, Hellboy discovers the secrets of his own origins, and his link to the Nazi occultists who promised Hitler a final solution in the form of a demonic avatar.

"The best horror comic in a generation. This Mignola guy is a wizard"

--Frank Miller

Booklist Review

The second oversize collection of Mignola's infernal superhero consists entirely of the shorter stories that fill the gap in the unfolding big story started in the early Hellboys gathered in Hellboy, v.1 (2008) and resumed, a bit, in Strange Places (2006). It's pure Mignola, written and drawn, and it verifies his and editor Scott Allie's shared contention that horror is best suited to the short story, even when it is adulterated by Hellboy's wisecracks and exclamations of minor frustration while pummeling and being pummeled by supersize supernatural monsters. Try The Corpse and The Wolves of St. August for starters, then devour the rest of these terribly tasty concoctions.--Olson, Ray Copyright 2008 Booklist
