Hellboy leaves behind the familiar strangeness of the B.P.R.D. for even stranger places. He meets a two-hundred-year-old witch doctor and talks to lions, but that's only the beginning of Hellboy's weirdest journey yet. Mike Mignola takes his most celebrated creation from Africa to the bottom of the sea, in the next stage of a very unusual life.
