Hellboy: Makoma; or, A Tale Told by a Mummy in the New York City Explorers' Club on August 16, 1993 #2 Hellboy's strange adventure across the bone-strewn plains of Africa pits him against the singing dead, demonic insects, and the sort of woman only Richard Corben can draw. The final issue in this epic bit of African folklore reimagined by Mike Mignola is a unique collaboration between Hellboy's creator and comics legend Richard Corben and features a cover and twenty-one pages drawn by Corben, plus a three-page epilogue from Mignola.

    Hellboy: Makoma is a head scratcher. Mignola relates his Just So... story in a smooth technique that's filled with wit. Corben beautifully captures the tone and Mignola's impressions. Confusing but kind of good. I imagine Hellboy felt the same way. Read Full Review

    All in all, this is a good issue of Hellboy that is sure to please some fans while upsetting others. For me, its a quality comic book that doesnt offer many of the thrills I look forward to month in and month out. Read Full Review
