    Hellchild is a stunning epic enshrined within a sanguine odyssey, all stained crimson with lyrical artistry worthy of a Grecian tragedy. The search for redemption is something which we have all attempted at one time in our lives and it is this adventure which makes this story worthy of acknowledgement. We can see Angelica as a troubled child and the brutality of her tantrums only seeks to reinforce her anger and as such, once she does accept her faults, the pleasure of seeing her overcoming them makes the story all the more satisfying. Zenescope has welcomed a new member to their extraordinary family, and I for one cannot wait for her next adventure to grace these pages. Read Full Review

    In ConclusionWe come full circle as we see Hades imprisoned and about to be executed. Angelica has been betrayed by a main character and Van Helsing is involved in another fight and has been delayed in the rescue of her lover. A great story, if I have any criticism of this issue it's that we don't see enough of Olaf. I think his character should have been more prominent. Other than that this is a very satisfying conclusion which makes us wonder about the future of these characters. Will Hades and Van Helsing continue their relationship or has it been strained to the breaking point. Will father and daughter reconcile? Some of these questions aren't completely answered by the finale leaving the possibility for another story at another time. I enjoyed this series very much. Read Full Review
