    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Justin Munday Mar 31, 2021

    A stellar issue of adventure on an island with dinosaurs, black magic, and giant apes, all led by a youthful HB who is an absolute joy to read, and carried by great Mignolaverse visual work. Read Full Review

    Although we do get the ape on dinosaur violence (well-timed given the recent release of Godzilla vs. Kong), Young Hellboy: The Hidden Land #2 is really more about stepping back, providing some information about a new character in the vigilante turned hidden island's protector, and then setting up the evil which they will need to battle over the remaining issues as something dark stirs in the ancient temple calling out to the zealot who attempted to kill Hellboy. It appears the Ohnar have good reason to avoid the temple and I'm guessing Professor Bruttenholm‘s interest in it won't go over well with the locals. Read Full Review

    An entirely different side to our titular hero, it’s fun to watch Young Hellboy experience his first adventure and a previously untold chapter in his life. Hellboys age makes the story feel much lighter than typical fare. Now that the main Hellboy and B.P.R.D. stories have finished any excuse to travel back into that world for a new story is a good one, and the fact the story is so fun is just a bonus. Hopefully this is just the first in an entire series exploring Hellboy in his youth. Read Full Review

    "Young Hellboy: The Hidden Land" #2 swings through the golden age of monster movies, pulp heroism, and coming of age adventures, albeit while losing some of its own structure and identity in the homage. Scarlett Santiago, the Sky Devil, definitely steals the show"it's clear the creative team was having fun introducing her and teasing out her story. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Calum Petrie Mar 31, 2021

    The last pages of this issue certainly hijacked the type of story we started with, and it manages to swap genres from monster movie vibes to a more demonic showcase. The anticipation is now building for the next issue, and another glimpse into the minds of this fantastic creative team behind the comic. Read Full Review

    This isn't perfect. The fact that the natives are literally monkeys is iffy, for instance, as is the gratuitous nudity. But for a Young Hellboy story, it is a very good one. Read Full Review

    This is the best Hellboy story I have ever read and it isn't even over yet ! Jumping from aspirations of Spielberg in the 1st one to being inspired by Conan Doyale and Planet of the Apes. And Hellboy is cute here, not saracastically annoying. The She-Devil is Ameila Earhardt meets the Hulk and Rousseau's art had me mistakening his pencil for Mignola's. And now the next issue is priming up to be the Universal Monsters re-make the world was hoping for. Since I was introduced to Hellboy as a kid, I always found his books boring - ironically, Hellboy as a kid, is the total opposite !
