Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mike Mignola's 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 gears up for the release of the 2004 Hellboy motion picture, we present this lavish collection of these stories. One of the most popular features in recent Hellboy books has been the sketchbook section, so we've asked these stellar artists to let us present some of their behind-the-scenes work in this collection.

Review:

"The collection of 13 stories has no duds, and quite a few excellent pieces....This entertaining collection is accessible to even the Hellboy neophyte, and highly recommended for adventure comics lovers." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"The word entertaining is an understatement for this stuff....Humor and whimsy are constants in the writing, even, darkly, in the one story in which Hellboy is replaced by a human demon — Stalin." Ray Olson, Booklist

Synopsis:

Collecting issues #1 through #4 of the bi-monthly series. Some of the best writers and artists in comics team up to present stories of giant bats, demon children, jet packs, haunted circuses, and rusted-out spaceships. Old-fashioned pulp fun featuring one of the greatest heroes of modern comics.

Synopsis:

In 1994, Mike Mignola launched one of the most unique and visually arresting comics series ever to see print. Ten years later, the character and his creator have enjoyed every success possible in the world of comics, and beyond. Now some of the best cartoonists, from the mainstream world of superheroes to the fringes of alternative comix, present a wild array of bizarre stories expanding on the world of Hellboy, taking the characters to place Mignola himself never dared go.

This book is a lot of fun. Not a 'regular' Hellboy, but a lot of different comic authors and artists take on Hellboy stories. Highly entertaining!

It's fun to see other peoples' takes on Hellboy and the rest of the characters, but the stories are kinda uneven, and I just missed Mignola's artwork.
