As Hellboy struggles in the grip of a mysterious illness, a Brotherhood operative inside the B.P.R.D. brings an assassin within striking distance! But even with a fever, young Hellboy has an ace up his (pajama) sleeve . . . or is that a familiar calling card?

    Rousseau delivers some beautifully detailed art throughout the issue. The visuals are fun and wonderfully play into the rising tension of the story.  Read Full Review

    Overall, Mignola is giving us the youthful experience with Hellboy we want. This story is well written, and I am curious to see if the illness Hellboy is struggling with is inflicted or just him being a kid. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Sep 14, 2022

    A lot of the focus here really is just on Hellboy having a great little adventure. He's using his imagination in a big way and has no clue that he's being hunted. He's simply having a ton of fun as boys of that period would while hanging with his dog Mac. He's not being watched as he should be by those there that are supposed to but it that's also something that feels natural as well. The book reads quite well and the art is great in making it all feel cohesive and absolutely delightful at times with Hellboy's imagination. I can't wait to see what happens next. Read Full Review

    The core of the book is the Hellboy and the Lobster team up. If you enjoy "Lobster Johnson" comics where the Lobster cries out "Beware the Claw of Justice!" then you're going to love this. Read Full Review

    While it's likely real trouble is just behind the corner, and I'm still not sure exactly how the janitor will play in (other than as a potential victim), this issue (even starting with the mania of a cult) proves to be an awful lot of fun. Read Full Review
