Hellboy is kidnapped and hooked up to a massive mecha-Hellboy for a mission on a mysterious, faraway island, but the island might just put up a fight of its own. Inspired by Mignola's viral-hit pencil drawings from Mike Mignola: The Quarantine Sketchbook, Giant Robot Hellboy gets his own story in this 3-part miniseries from Mignola and longtime Hellboy artist Duncan Fegredo!

    Comic Crusaders - Antonio Rodriguez Nov 1, 2023

    Despite not being drawn by Mignola themselves, Duncan Fegredo does a fantastic job at retaining the original style of Hellboy whilst still adding his own spin to it. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Tyler Davis Oct 30, 2023

    Giant Robot Hellboy#1 doesn't feel like the start of something serialized, but instead the first chunk of something that will sit better with reader's once it can be read in its totality. That being said, this issue is still worth ago in a monthly format, the beautiful designed interiors, cover art, and flow of intrigue Mignola brings to the plot is more than enough to guarantee a great time.

    AIPT - Collier Jennings Oct 24, 2023

    Giant Robot Hellboy #1 is everything I love about comics. It's ridiculous, yet awesome. It puts a favorite character of mine into a new situation that fits his universe. Most importantly, it's the kind of comic you could give a friend and/or family member and they'd love it. Because who doesn't love giant robots? Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Oct 25, 2023

    The first of three issues, Giant Robot Hellboy is exactly what it says it's going to be. Fegredo does a great job of establishing the visuals for this book and the time in London from the abduction to the lab and all the costume design is fantastic. The colors are great and there's just so many neat details to linger on throughout these sequences. The island side itself is solid and fun enough and the semi-Evangelion-esque element of introducing Giant Robot Hellboy hits a certain sweet spot for me as well. This isn't something I'm expecting to be this massively intricate story concept kind of thing but more just a fun romp with some weird moments. It's delivering well on that and I'm excited to see what comes next. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Oct 29, 2023

    The spy action is as sleek as the robot fight is clunky. The ending is a little abrupt, but it's a good first foray and would probably make Guillermo Del Toro smile. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Oct 31, 2023

    Given the absolute craziness of the concept, throwing the reader right into the middle without explanation (kind of like how Hellboy must feel) offers plenty of off-the-wall fun. Now comes the hard part in making this story make sense. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - James Dowling Oct 25, 2023

    Giant Robot Hellboy #1 is an unabashed ride into 20th century genre fiction that suffers in parts from a hesitancy to ride head first into the promise of its premise. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Oct 25, 2023

    While the concept of Hellboy in a giant robot may seem redundant, the book showcases exceptional art that enhances the overall experience. The plot's lack of depth leaves much to be desired, but with more issues to come, there's hope for improved storytelling. However, the series falls short of establishing new characters within its limited length, which could hinder reader engagement. Despite its shortcomings, the atmospheric elements and exceptional artwork are redeeming qualities that keep the readers engaged. Read Full Review
