    Hellboy In Hell #7 is a must read for any Hellboy fans, even if they are lapsed and don't want to pick up where they left off. You may feel like you have no context and are confused as to what the hell is going on, but don't worry: you're supposed to. It's all part of the experience of this comic and I recommend you embrace your confusion and just let the visuals draw you in to Hellboy's utterly unique world. Read Full Review

    Mignola, Stewart, and Robins prove the devil is in the details, and there are a lot of sensational details in this book. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Chris Bennett Aug 25, 2015

    Mignola is a true master of his craft, from the way he manages to tangle in pieces of humour to a reasonably dark tale to the way that negative space is used to further the story to the way it's almost what isn't shown more that what's actually on the page that makes the biggest impression.

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Jul 29, 2015

    I wish I had more to say about this issue, but it's pretty straight forward like the entire series has managed to be. So much of what makes this story wonderful is the experience of reading it. There's only so much a review can capture without kind of losing the magic in the process. Basically this is a series worth waiting for. If you've started the journey then continue it and if you haven't, then this is as good of a place as any join in. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Tyler Goulet Jul 29, 2015

    IsHellboy in Hell every bit as good as described above? Absolutely. It's all that and then some. It's a special comic in a category all its own from creators that transcend anything you think you know about comics. If you haven't readHellboy, at the very least, you've not truly experienced comics yet. The depth, genius, both artistically and with the story, are far beyond what you might come into the series expecting. It's its own beast and something you just can't compare to other comics in the industry. It can't be stressed enough here, or in any of the reviews before this, that youneed to readHellboy and experience it for yourself. Until then, it might be time for this reviewer to go back and read everything all over again. Read Full Review

    This issue is up there with the very best Hellboy tales, but even still, I struggle to think of a single one with the range of tone found in this issue. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Aug 27, 2015

    Any issue illustrated by Mignola is a visual treat, but this one is all the more striking because of the unusual variety to the pages. Mignola and colorist Dave Stewart render Hellboy's visions in a lush, painterly style that contrasts with the somber, colorless scenes of Hell and the more traditional supernatural antics later in the book.

    It is always a joy to see a new art from Mignola, and Hellboy in Hell #7 proves that rule once again. From the evocative, soft dreams at the start of this issue to the big battle at the end, every page of this issue is a treat. Hellboy's development as a character is mirrored by Mignola and Stewart's as artists, all of them showing their souls here. Read Full Review

    Hellboy in Hell #7 marks a triumphant return for the series, as although it's likely to be shortly lived, with yet another long wait between arcs, there's never a bad time to get more Hellboy action. It also leaves great speculation, with our hero's journey through hell being full of surprises. So be sure to pick this up from your local comic book store come August 26. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Aug 27, 2015

    There's a great poetry to this book, particularly when a demonic doctor stalks the neighborhood, delivering the "toil and trouble" speech from Macbeth. This book is less of a story and more of an experience " and it's an experience you owe it to yourself to check out. Read Full Review

    Having Mignola back on both art and writing duties is a treat, and this issue already has the elements that make the exploits of Hellboy so great. Read Full Review

    Wow. I expected so much more from a creator that I truly like. I enjoy the character of Hellboy a lot but this wasn't the outing. I hope they restore him to the land of the living with the rest of the BPRD soon because reading this book was torturous. Strike a match, clear the air and onto the next one please. Maybe Red, will get his Samaritan back or a surprise visit from Abe Sapien but I don't know if I'll be back. My apologies to you Mr. Mignola but this was just missing for me. At least I have your classics. Read Full Review
