    This review is really just an excuse to gush over Mignola to be honest, don't just buy this, buy everything with his name on it. Read Full Review

    Being a long-term fan of Mignola, I think all his work is amazing. This issue in particular is filled with such twists, so much morbidity, blood, anguish, and a lot of foreshadowing. Mignola has really outdone himself. I can’t wait to read more Hellboy in Hell material. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Tyler Goulet Oct 28, 2015

    Hellboy in Hell #8 might be the most must-read issue in this line in recent memory. Mignola gives you a taste of the world he's created, while catching you up on some key points so he can bring you along for the ride in the issues to come. There's something downright magical about his storytelling, his art and his overall eye for panels that just puts him a cut above the rest. Even if you've skipped the last installment, you need to pick this up. All-Comic.com has beenscreaming about how good this series is for years, and it's about damn time you pick it up. There is no better time than now. Read Full Review

    It may be some time before we see the next chapter of the series, but the wait is always well worth it. Read Full Review

    Hellboy in Hell #8 marks the end of yet another arc for the Seed of Destruction, and although we'll have yet another wait until the series returns, it was nice to get yet another amazing tale whilst we can. It also gives us yet more history to this iconic character, making it even easier to recommend. Read Full Review

    Mignola and Stewart are a great 1-2 punch, and Hellboy In Hell #8 is a rock solid comic. The saga of Hellboy continues to move in interesting directions and entertain me wildly. Mignola is a masterful storyteller and, even though there may be a wait, I'll be waiting with open arms for it. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Brian Salvatore Sep 23, 2015

    Both the most and least interesting thing about Hellboy is his destiny – it is the sword of Damocles that hangs over the entire Mignolaverse. On one hand, we are all waiting for that story to be told; on the other, that story being told will bring an end to all of this. So, while I cannot wait to see how that, eventually, wraps up, I am very glad to have Mignola telling such amazing tales of Red while he can, before we all find out just how incorruptible his destiny really is.

    Any new Hellboy comic is a joy, and "Hellboy in Hell" #8 delivers on its promise. What could have easily been a slight two-parter shows us more of the dark times ahead for Hellboy instead. His sojourn in Hell is just beginning and, clearly, it's full of strong possibilities. It's not a phrase one would say often but I, for one, am looking forward to another trip back to Hell soon if Mignola leads the way. Read Full Review

    As a person with little knowledge for the Mignolaverse, I definitely recommend checking out Hellboy in Hell even if you don't care to read the stories that preceded it. This series gets to the core as to why this character has had great staying power. Once you make it to the final few haunting pages though, you'll really have to fight off the urge to binge read all that Mignola has done with this character. Read Full Review

    "Hellboy" closes out the short arc with a revealing issue. This one provides a recap of some of his past and adds some interesting family pieces to the puzzle, but also reveals a few more questions. The comic has action and terrific artwork to help pace the book nicely. Unfortunately the wait now begins for the next installment in the series and it appears it will be a while. However, this issue was worth picking up and was definitely an entertaining read. Read Full Review
