The world above may be over, and Hellboy gone with it, but Koshchei is still in Hell content with his wine and his books-until an old face arrives and brings Koshchei a critical task. An old and powerful foe is returning, and Koshchei must take up his sword and defend the city from destruction.

Mignola returns to Hell to reunite with one of his favorite collaborators, Ben Stenbeck (Frankenstein Underground, Witchfinder: In The Service of Angels, Baltimore, Koshchei the Deathless).

    The storybook feel of Koshchei in Hell is strong, and it's the kind of comic that feels built like the best fairy tale. Creatures abound as Koshchei embarks on an adventure that may be his last, but it's certainly not his least fantastical. Koshchei in Hell #1 has everything you'd want in another great fairy tale adventure only Mignola could think up. Read Full Review

    Though an attempt is made to give this title some leverage to potential new readers, this is a comic almost reserved for the hardcore Mignola/Hellboy fanatic. Fitting that descriptor however, it's a nice start to a series that could very well become something very fresh and unique in this publishing line. Read Full Review

    Koshchei in Hell #1 reminds the reader about the Hellboy mythos and sets up the narrative arc but doesn't bring in new ideas quite yet. Read Full Review
