The feverish Hellboy, aka the Scarlet Crab, breaks into the ghoulish "Castle Death" accompanied by his dog Mac and a surprising but familiar face. But the "castle" holds strange and dangerous occult items that do not mix well with Hellboy's hallucinations--especially when the shadowy Brotherhood's assassin makes his move!

    I had more fun reading this book than the last few- it's a transition book, and we are approaching the end. We must be on the edge of our seats for the final book. I am excited to see how Mike Mignola and Thomas Sniegoski finish the of Assault on Castle Death chapter. Read Full Review

    Rousseau delivers some great art throughout the issue and manages to keep both the whimsical nature of Hellboy's adventure fun and light while giving a dark edge to the killer getting closer to him. Read Full Review

    Young Hellboy is a fun property in general and I really like that they went into the background story here as much as they did to flesh out the tale that Lobster Johnson is telling him. Or that his mind is creating. It's a lot of fun when combined with the simply playful superhero costume that he has on works as they make their way through the building, trusty dog right beside him. We do know that a real threat lurks here, though how capable it is really remains to be seen, so it's not just all silliness and giggles. Even though obviously we know Hellboy survives for decades to come. It's just simple good fun and makes me smile while enjoying the creativity and fantastic artwork. Read Full Review

    Mike Mignola and Thomas Sniegoski's continued work in the Young Hellboy realm remains an odd corner of the franchise. By bringing the naive world view that the titular fella has and marrying it with the larger conspiracy-driven, monster-occupied larger universe, it becomes a combination unlike anything else being published under the banner.

    While still enjoying the adventure, some of Hellboy's dialogue suggests at least a part of him has begun to suspect not everything he's seeing is real. Read Full Review
