    Fans of Hellboy will want to check this out because it fleshes out another corner of the Mignolaverse. Those interested in folklore might also find this a fun little tale. It is brutal in the best way sometimes, but it is always gorgeous. This is a miniseries that is more than worth pulling upa chair for. Read Full Review

    "Koshchei the Deathless" is more than just a "Hellboy" spinoff. It's a spiritual companion to "Hellboy in Hell," straying into stranger places than most Hellboy Universe stories dare. And like "Hellboy in Hell," it is a magnificent read. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Feb 8, 2018

    Although the issue ends in heaps of blood and death, Koshchei the Deathless #2 feels very much like a sunny fairy tale told by Koshchei to Hellboy over a cold beer (if beer actually gets cold in Hell?). Although the unstoppable warrior was successful in the first part of his quest, it appears that his tale is about to take yet another tragic turn. Worth a look. Read Full Review
