    This is a short run but it's a very entertaining one. It's probably a decent dip into the world of Hellboy for those unfamiliar… it's not too involved but it gives a decent sense of Hellboy and as it's only two issues the cost to take this dip is minimal. What I'm saying is… any excuse to bring a new potential fan into the world of Hellboy is good and this is as good an entry point as any other… so grab a copy and get acquainted. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Aug 11, 2021

    Any long-time reader of Hellboy knows how much fun these short stories are, and that they quite often end up being relevant to the larger Hellboy universe in weird and unexpected ways. Mignola and Golden have shown time and time again that they make an excellent pairing, and combining them with McManus' art makes this an excellent example of the Mignolaverse that will appeal to seasoned fans as well as readers with no experience of Hellboys world.

    The Secret of the Chesbro House didn't re-invent the wheel for Hellboy but is a nice distraction for fans of the character. Read Full Review

    To be fair, its a good enough story, and the artwork for the most is on par with the writing but for me its just not Hellboy, and I hope that this is just a minor blip rather than anyone taking their eye off the ball on what has been one of my favourite worlds for over the last 25 years.
