Publisher Comments:

Mike Mignola's award-winning Hellboy is now a major motion picture starring Ron Perlman (Beauty and the Beast, City of Lost Children) and directed by Guillermo Del Toro (Mimic, Blade II, The Devil's Backbone).

When strangeness threatens to engulf the world, a strange man will come to save it. Hellboy, the world's greatest paranormal investigator, is the only thing standing between sanity and insanity as he battles the mystical forces of the netherworld and a truly bizarre plague of frogs. And if he fails, we all fail with him!

Synopsis:

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.

This is a great place to start with the Hellboy/BPRD series. Highly recommended even if you're not normally a fan of graphic novels. Mignola blends folk lore and mythology into a highly unique series.

Ron Williams, February 13, 2010 (view all comments by Ron Williams)
Mike Mignola's Hellboy series is one of the best pieces of comics literature in the last 30 years. Mignola's artwork is highly original and superb, while the stories are inspired. Often retellings of classical fairy tales and mythology from around the world, Mignola's personal notes on the origination and inspiration of the stories and drawings adds a certain depth to the books that are often lacking in other graphic novels. This is not your average graphic novel, this is not the movie series, this is very exceptional art.
