Theories and threads are coming up cold, but the bodies are still piling up in the terrified New Hampshire town. How many more will die before the creature is contained? Agent Kinsley and the local authorities must race to stop the bloodthirsty body-snatcher without Hellboy, who has been urgently pulled in another direction.

    This looks much better than it reads. Two separate tales that shouldn't have been combined conclude with strong visuals. I was disappointed in this conclusion, with the horror in the woods considerably more entertaining than Liz and Hellboy on the streets. Perhaps this suffers from prequel storytelling, much like popular films; for example, Star Wars: the reader knows where these characters end up, so is there any tension left in telling an adventure from the past? Readable, but not wholly satisfying. Read Full Review

    Certainly if you've been following this story, this is an obvious must buy" but I'd also say if you are a fan of Hellboy and Liz" this is an essential. I don't want to say any more than that" because it's really quite lovely and it's best if you read it yourself with out any spoilers. Read Full Review

    Now that this story has come to an end it's quite clear it was a nice seasonal story detailing a meaningful moment between Hellboy and Liz that wasn't your conventional monster madness Hellboy story. It's lighter and written for the longtime fans rather than those who want a good scary story. That said, there are other Hellboy stories out that can scratch your itch for monsters and fight scenes.

    This is far from essential reading, but it won't disappoint longtime readers looking to spend time with characters whose endings have already been delivered. Read Full Review
