Synopses & Reviews
A murder in a New York wax museum and a missing corpse lead Hellboy and the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense into ancient Romanian castles on the trail of a sleeping legend: the nobleman vampire, Vladimir Guirescu. Nazi scientists, revived in Hellboy: Seed of Destruction, prepare for the return of Rasputin and the end of the world, and Hellboy confronts his purpose on earth. This 144-page book includes the complete, sell-out Wake the Devil miniseries, plus a new five-page epilogue and pinups by Bruce Timm, P. Craig Russell, Dave Cooper, Jay Stephens, Olivier Vatine, and Derek Thompson.
In 1812, Vladimir Giurescu led Cossack guerrillas against the "Grande Armee" retreating out of Moscow. In 1882, he was rumored to have established a secret, evil empire in England. And in 1944, Hitler tried to recruit Giurescu to join his war efforts. Over 150 years, more than a dozen sightings of the same man -- and now he has returned, and this time, he's Hellboy's problem. Join Hellboy and the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense as they walk into the biggest disaster in its fifty-year history!
