    "Hellboy: The Silver Lantern Club" has so many Mignola projects in its DNA, yet it also has a spark all of its own. Read Full Review

    It's obvious to anyone who has read my reviews before that I'm a big fan of Hellboy and the Mignolaverse… but I'm going to assume that if you are reading this then you probably have more than a passing interest too (if not, then… welcome and I advise you to give Hellboy a try). This is listed as part of a miniseries but works perfectly well as a story on its own so there's no hesitation on my part in recommending this as a great comic to pick up. You get to learn more of Hellboy's family links to the world of the Occult and a fun story to boot. Read Full Review

    Stenbeck and Mitten do great work with the art in the issue. There is great atmosphere in every panel and the details are brilliantly done. Read Full Review

    Personally, Im looking forward to seeing the collected edition of this in a suitably aged cracked leather tome, titled something along the lines of Fireside tales with Uncle Simon. Read Full Review

    Even if the adventure itself doesn't feature Hellboy, and we get the titular character only in the bookends to the flashback, there's still some fun to be had (especially in the manner which the demon was defeated, which I won't ruin here). Since it appears Simon has more stories to tell, at least until the pub's last call, this is just the start of the mini-series. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Spencer Perry Oct 27, 2021

    Penned by Mignola and frequent collaborator Chris Roberson this series doesn't so much fill in gaps of the larger mythology of the Hellboy universe instead simply creating tiny footnotes that can be referenced in stories on the whole, which is to say this might be a fine read but it seldom feels as engaging as many of the threads it's picking up from.
