Eisner Award-winning horror masters Mike Mignola and Richard Corben present this bloodcurdling double-feature comic with Hellboy entering two very different, but very deadly, housesa carnivorous home and a pagan temple, both hungry for human sacrifices. 2011 Eisner Award winner for Best Single Issue (or One-Shot).

    If you've never read a Hellboy story before, this is your sort of book. Both the lead and back-up require almost no prior knowledge of the character and there's the gorgeous Richard Corben art.

    The second story isn't as good as the first. In the "House of Sebek" Hellboy is almost a mere spectator for the eerie Egyptian events. The quality of Corben's illustration and Stewart's colors match those seen in the previous story, but Hellboy simply doesn't participate enough. Had the second story been as exciting and quirky as the first, I probably would have given Hellboy: Double-Feature a perfect score. As is, it earns four bullets. Read Full Review
