    In addition to the centerpiece, Hellboy explains to Alice why he gave up drinking. This leads to a hilarious expository narration peppered with Hellboy's penchant for mild expletives. Fegredo delights in illustrating Alice and her relationship with Hellboy, overt in their meaningful glances and arm and arm moments. It's this sweetness that lends impetus to the porcupine thing's attack. Hellboy will survive the crash, but will Alice? To top it all off, a persona of great light and power emerges for a startling yet understated cliffhanger. Hellboy: The Storm is not to be missed. Read Full Review

    "Hellboy: The Storm" #1 is another strong comic from Mignola, Fegredo, Stewart, and Dark Horse, and with "Hellboy: The Wild Hunt" recently collected into a trade paperback, it's a great time for readers who just can't wait for the conclusion. Most of the titles from Dark Horse's short-lived "Legend" imprint are over, but it's great to see "Hellboy" not only still being published, but at such a high quality to boot. Moody, dark, exciting, even a little loving; it's all here. Good, good stuff Read Full Review

    It isn't too long before the literal and metaphorical storms begins brewing and Hellboy is horn-deep in danger and mysticism once more. Plenty of familiar faces crop up, both in flashback form and as active players. This issue could perhaps have offered a slightly more satisfying mixture of exposition, tension-building, and action, but I imagine the trade will deliver a better reading experience in that sense. Fegredo continues to establish himself as the strongest of Mignola's collaborators, with a moody style that strongly evokes Mignola's own yet rife with its own subtle nuances. This looks like it could be a good one, even by the normal Hellboy standard. Read Full Review
