Gone, but not forgotten!

Years after Hellboy's ill-fated tangle with the Beast of Vargu, the Romani women who helped him need that debt repaid. Claimed by a demon in a romance gone wrong, the younger woman reaches out to Hellboy through the power of a familiar old puppet, and a supernatural confrontation full of magic and mayhem ensures! In a second short story, Hellboy goes head to head with a phantom who is looking for an object completely unknown to the living people the ghost is terrorizing.

Master of horror Mike Mignola is joined by artist extraordinaire Tiernen Trevallion and award-winning colorist Dave Stewart to br more

    This is just what I wanted. After a long absence it was like meeting an old friend again. One-shots are my second best comic format (behind TPB's). The ability to pick it up and have a complete story (or two) in one comic is fantastic and both of these stories feel complete without any element lacking. They don't feel rushed or limited. A high recommendation for any Hellboy fans or anyone who might want to dip their toes in the Mignolaverse. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Dec 10, 2020

    Hellboy rarely goes wrong and this one-shot is another solid chapter in the character's history. Since he's been all over the world for decades, there are opportunities for many more stories like this and I sincerely hope we get them. It's clear that Mignola has not missed a beat in Hellboy's 25-plus year legacy. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Dec 2, 2020

    Hellboy short stories always stand out as some of Mignola's best work, and these two will fit in nicely amongst the others. Mignola tells the story he wants to in the space it requires, and there is no unnecessary bloating to make these stories longer. Fans of Hellboy will be picking this up, no doubt about it, while newcomers will get a good taste of Hellboys world and this could be a stepping stone to investigating the larger mythology. The art from Trevallion feels like a good fit for the Mignolaverse. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Mark Tweedale Dec 2, 2020

    The two tales are lighter than the usual "Hellboy" story, embracing the more humorous aspects of the series, and the extra pages make for an especially satisfying read. Read Full Review

    The 'Her Fatal Hour' one-shot is a sequel to 'Beast of Vargu' and a fantastic one at that, continuing what was already a very clever concept.
