    As to Dave Stewart, I sometimes wonder if Hellboy would have been such a success with regular coloring. Dave Stewart's restraint with one shade and accents with another gave Hellboy as much of a visual signature as Mignola's unusual style did. Earthy browns signify the inn and the noble dead. Shades of gray swathes evil creatures. Hellboy of course is Big, Bright Red. A gun blast gains animation in fiery orange, and unearthly greens mark a change in direction.

    The raw emotions at play as Hellboy leaves his newfound happiness behind for the uncertainty of battle are powerful. The Storm is easily one of the most emotionally gripping stories Mignola has told. It's a good thing he has Duncan Fegredo at his side. Fegredo's visual style and sense of composition are second only to Mignola's in the Hellboy comics, and his ability to convey emotion is even stronger. As excellent as the Storm has been, in the end it's but a prelude to Hellboy: The Fury. With a setup this good, I can't wait to read the next chapter. Read Full Review
