    This first issue of Crimson Lotus left me wanting more. The horror elements were as strong as The Crooked Man, which most Hellboy fans consider some of the most unsettling and made it a point to get under my skin. While the uninitiated might enjoy Crimson Lotus #1, this book really is for fans of the Hellboy books, to begin with. For those that haven't read a Hellboy book ever, you still might enjoy aspects of this book, due to its strong writing and slick artwork, so either way, I'd recommend it! Read Full Review

    Overall this is an intriguing start and one Im keen to follow but, as with all of the standalone entries in the Mignolaverse, I think this is going to be one that is best read as a graphic novel rather than in single issues. From past experience Ive found that the single issue format frequently takes you out of the story and doesnt allow you to fully appreciate its nuances, and Ive most enjoyed either being able to read the whole story in one go or in the longer trade paperback format.
