In a terrifying fortress decorated with dead soldiers, Hellboy reels from recent revelations about his bloodline and his connection to British history, and to the Queen of Blood herself. But theres little time for him to consider his destiny when Astaroth arrives, leading to a battle that will tear down the castle walls around the unconscious Alice.

This issue also includes a backup story by Scott Allie (Solomon Kane) and Patric Reynolds, featuring Henry Hood, the zealous witchfinder introduced in Hellboy: Darkness Calls!

    The finale is next and it seems impossible that the comic will tie up every single plot. However, I would suspect Hellboy will give his initial answer about the sword and I would expect the battle to begin. This issue includes a dark backup about Henry Hood that may also play into the finale, but we'll have to wait and see on that one. This is shaping up to be the best Hellboy mini series in years where the ending could go any number of ways. I highly recommend this comic. Read Full Review

    I once said that nobody could illustrate Mike Mignola's Hellboy except Mike Mignola. Dave Stewart made me realize how important his colors were to the whole enterprise, and Duncan Fegredo continues to make me reconsider my original position. I can say that without a doubt nobody can write Mike Mignola's Hellboy except Mike Mignola. Read Full Review

    Here Mignola draws Hellboy into one of England's most potent mythologies (and my personal favorite), and there's no telling where the story goes from here. Read Full Review
