    Comics Bulletin - Zack Davisson Feb 5, 2013

    And then that ending … Mignola once again reminds us that the only thing we can expect from Hellboy in Hell is the unexpected. I really didn't see the ending coming, and now that I have read it, I still don't know exactly what I saw. I have stared at that last page and I still have no real idea what I am seeing. But it's cool. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Sara 'Babs' Lima Feb 6, 2013

    How Mignola is able to top the previous two issues since this series relaunched is something that completely leaves me in awe. Everything about it from the art, to the dialogue to the abstractness of the story, to the hints at underlying themes and the surprise ending makes this one of my most anticipated reads each month, and this month's issue is no different. The story is beautiful and is a bit on the existential side in the sense that it really makes readers question who Hellboy is and what his purpose is. It's incredibly well crafted, and the ending will absolutely shock you. Read Full Review

    Hellboy is fighting against his destiny and if we know anything about Hellboy there's a whole lot more fight left in this big red ape demon. This first arc is ramping up, now that we're past the first few introductory issues, and it's some of the best work from Mike Mignola and Dave Stewart that we have ever seen. Mignola's vision is crystal clear and we're no doubt in for tons more crazy encounters and battles before we're through. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Sean Feb 6, 2013

    This issue is nuts. It completely redeems the last two issues, which have essentially been a lead up to this mother. Oh such spoilers I will not give. Such monsters I will not explain. Such folly to assume you can predict where ole' Mignola is going. Read Full Review

    Following The Nerd - Shane Kildea Feb 22, 2013

    These events literally made me gasp. There is a lot at play here and we can't now even be sure what we've seen so far can be taken literally. The last few pages are monumental to the plot and I'm really excited where we could be headed but with Mike Mignola at the helm I'm sure it will be one hell of a ride. Read Full Review

    It would be tough to start reading the series with this tale, but for any fan of Hellboy, this is a story not to be missed. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - GreenBastard Feb 8, 2013

    Hellboy in Hell has been an unreal ride so far, this is issue takes it up another notch with its action and story flow. The next issue will bring about new events and I am very interested to see where Mignolas imagination takes Hellboy next Read Full Review

    ScienceFiction.com - Stuart Conover Feb 10, 2013

    He comes to Hellboy with blame. Blame for Pandemonium being a tomb. Blame for there no longer being a kingdom of Hell. Blame for killing Satan. With a few seconds of memory here it looks as if Hellboy may actually have killed Satan even though he denied he would ever do that in the previous issue. Has someone been using Hellboy for their own plans? We'll find out next issue! (Actually we'll probably just come up with even more questions.) Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Feb 12, 2013

    Mike Mignola still continue to impress with his proper return to writing and drawing Hellboy, giving us an issue full of twists, surprise, action and depth. With his artistic skill on top form and the help of Dave Stewart, he continues to deliver on a big series with utter quality. Read Full Review

    IGN - Poet Mase Feb 6, 2013

    This is another winner for Mike Mignola and crew, but I don't know if anyone ever doubted that such would be the case. The story works some up tempo sequences into a bitter power struggle, and the artwork works as much between the panel borders as it does within them. I would have preferred that the dialog connect a little more smoothly from panel to panel, but, taken in the context of Mignola's mosaics of atmospheric snapshots, it's not an enormous concern. Deeper down the rabbit hole we go, and I'm only too happy to see where Mike Mignola leads us next issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Feb 6, 2013

    We’re on issue three which means if you’re not reading this series then you’re missing out. Now the first two issues have sold out so you have a partial excuse, but they’re coming back in print so you better get them. If you’re one that enjoys the ease and convenience of digital then hit up Dark Horse’s store front and get caught up this week. You won’t regret it. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jennifer Cheng Feb 11, 2013

    The art and the tone of "Hellboy in Hell" #3 are grim and beautiful, somber and graceful, with a creepiness from a deep and endless space instead of screams or violence, but Mignola also keeps the humor and offbeat charm of Hellboy himself intact, making for unusual but haunting combination.

    Multiversity Comics - Brian Salvatore and David Harper Feb 6, 2013

    Comics as a medium can, often times, get stale and formulaic. And, while there may not be a ton of clues and winks to guide you along, "Hellboy in Hell" is nothing if not groundbreaking and challenging. I applaud it. Read Full Review

    A great series and this was a particularly good issue. I wish it could come out bi monthly at the very least, but if it's going to be this level quality for each issue, I'll be willing to wait.

    The best ongoing book and character in the business, IMHO.
