Hellboy has been assigned to patrol a train route where goblins have been stealing from passengers. Their latest victim, Anastacia, is a researcher and archaeologist transporting valuable artifacts to a museum, and she's not going to let them go without a fight! Rather than stay behind, she teams up with Hellboy to chase the light-fingered fey through the British countryside and into . . . a local punk show?

Hellboy creator Mike Mignola is joined by cowriter Christopher Golden and artist Matt Smith, featuring the colors of Chris O'Halloran, for a story of occult adventure and unlikely romance.

    Long-time Hellboy readers know that the "Beast of the Apocalypse" has dabbled in romance a handful of times but his flings were brief, albeit powerful. With their new series, Hellboy in Love, the powers that be in the franchise have decided to explore the idea with a little more nuance, plus it finally gives those with the hots for monsters some representation in another mainstream comic book series.

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Oct 26, 2022

    As the issues suggests, there's some strong chemistry between the gruff Hellboy and the flirtatious and adventurous researcher. There's also plenty of action here with Anastacia and Hellboy squabbling cutely while working together to track the goblins and the artifacts down. Their path leads them eventually to a punk rock concert as the issue comes to a close but with answers possibly in sight. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Jonathan Cadotte Oct 22, 2022

    Hellboy in Love #1 commits a cardinal sin of opening a series up. It wastes its first issue on exposition, without giving a really good example of how dangerous the threat actually is. Read Full Review
