We are five issues into Hellboy’s latest mini-series and Mike Mignola drops one heck of a bombshell in this issue. Seriously! I won’t spoil it but there’s a hint on the cover.
For the last few years Hellboy has been a pretty good read but it has been more and more overshadowed by its brilliant spin-off title B.P.R.D. This latest mini-series has been pretty good, bringing several story elements that have been building over the years to the foreground and now this issue. Damn – Mike is still has a few surprises up his sleeve.
Things are about to change for Hellboy and I’m really looking forward to the rest of this series. (Shane Hnetka)
