    I love the action Hellboy can get up to, but I have to say I also really appreciate the emotional depth that we get to see in these slower paced stories. There are some lovely moments of introspection that tie into some of the other stories that we have enjoyed and show a lovely level of emotional continuity across the different threads of the Hellboy universe. A ghost story with heart and soul (sorry) with a really lovely pay off at the end. Well worth grabbing a copy and you don't need to have read any of the referenced stories to feel the emotion throughout. Read Full Review

    Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. 1957: Forgotten Lives is a fantastic one-shot anyone can pick up and enjoy. It's a story we can all relate to. Remembering our friends or relatives or those that influenced and entertained us is something we all experience. Despite that sadness the story at the end feels like a celebration in a way. It doesn't fall down the usual path of Hellboy punching things, instead, it delivers a much story that is much more a challenge for us to reflect and think about those we love. Read Full Review
