Hellboy is trapped in a dark basement littered with bones and small coffins, and the only way out is through the floating creature of death!

For the first time, Mike Mignola teams up with artist Scott Hampton (Batman, The Sandman Presents: Lucifier) for this gothic tale.

    My final recommendation is to go out and grab this the next chance you get. And, if you missed it, see about getting the first chapter, too. This is the sort of comic that reminds you how much fun can be had with this medium. Read Full Review

    While we wait for "Hellboy: The Fury," this is a great way to catch your breath and get a fun little two-parter. I love that Mignola spends as much time with his side-stories in making them as entertaining as the core "Hellboy" comics; this is another winner from the Mignola-verse. Read Full Review

    Hellboy fights strange things all the time. In this comic book he basically fights a little girl vampire that has a cute little cat. It's definitely different. The issue manages to put others in danger by infusing some civilians in with the BPRD men. What's interesting here though is Mignola actually leaves a tiny door open in this issue for some of these vampires to be revisited. Overall, I liked the issue, but kind of wished it would have been either serious, funny or just a brawl instead of going back and forth so much. I have no doubt that a Hellboy fan would enjoy this issue though. Read Full Review
