    Comic Bastards - Levi Remington May 4, 2017

    Hellboy's latest standalone tale is a must read. If not for Gary Gianni's art, which is immeasurably stunning, then at least for his writing, which crafts a wild and tragic tale woven with poetry and possessed by an obscure devilry that only Mike Mignola could be responsible for.

    This is a book for every Hellboy fan out there. For an epic adventure with a horror twist and some crime thrown in, look no further. Mignola and his team couldn't have done a better job with this book, and I am beyond stoked that it comes in a hardcover format. So, what the heck are you still doing here?

    Newsarama - Scott Cederlund Apr 11, 2017

    Mike Mignola continues to create this rich mythology around the Hellboy character. Hellboy: Into the Silent Sea builds off of the rich history of the character and his world, giving Mignola the opportunity to pay homage to Herman Melville while adding to the legendary narrative of Hellboy. Working with Gary Gianni, this new comic book creates a moody and lovely chapter in the life of a character that feels as if it was ripped out of a sea shanty to simultaneously enchant and frighten off kids dreaming about life on the open ocean.

    Graphic Policy - Brett Apr 24, 2017

    Beautiful and haunting is the best description of this story which is not only an entertaining read but whose art transcends everything. This is a comic that you'll spend hours looking at every small detail Gianni includes within and appreciate that this is just something that comes once a year if we're lucky. Read Full Review

    I'm a sucker for Big Red… I'm also fond of the old classic and tales of the paranormal and unusual. Hellboy Into The Silent Sea ticks so many boxes that it's just a great little read. It's not overly long so it's an easy read… but there's a decent bit of meat on those bones. I could just imagine sitting in a lovely old study… open fire roaring, an aged leather chair seated just so… taking this book off the shelf and sitting down on a stormy night on an cliff overlooking the ocean and as lightning flashes in the distance, thunder rolls… opening the book to enter Hellboy's world.

    Hellboy is usually a home-run for me, but this is treading over old ground with no real world aspect, causing it to feel less grounded. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Apr 5, 2017

    A Hellboy story is always something to look forward to. Whilst this true, style over substances would be an easy trap to fall into, without the backbone of an ongoing seriesensconced these one shots, giving a sense of an overall arc. Read Full Review
