    Now there are some books which are real challenge to comment about simply because everything I want to say about them relates to or revolves around the storyline and since this book represents the collected story of Hellboy which covered so many books and even more comics its bit a of a challenge - rather like someone asking what you opinion you have over a TV show which is in the middle of the series and you cannot comment about what is going on. So here we are at probably the most ambitious vo Now there are some books which are real challenge to comment about simply because everything I want to say about them relates to or revolves around the storyline and since this book represents the collected story of Hellboy which covered so many books and even more comics its bit a of a challenge - rather like someone asking what you opinion you have over a TV show which is in the middle of the series and you cannot comment about what is going on. So here we are at probably the most ambitious volumes of the series and probably one of the most profound. One thing I have learnt about reading the stories of Hellboy and the BPRD is that they do not shy away from some pretty dramatic and final storylines. This book is no different and weighing in at over 500 pages its pretty intense stuff. Now this is the third in the series and to be honest this is probably for me the most important its where things all change. Now I will warn that as a result of this there are a lot of little references (as far as I can remember probably more than any other volume) to previous stories and events which although not a problem does challenge you to going and finding out what happened there. (I will admit that I did a couple of times have to stop and re-trace what happened in that reference. However these are all minor things in what I felt was probably the best in the series (so far -as there is still the second stand alone book and the last in the collected works). I just wonder if there will be a similar treatment oneway for Abe and the rest of BPRD?

    I loved this volume so much. I can see these stories were fan favorites. Hellboy fights monsters from Russian and English folklore. All leading up to an epic battle with Arthurian characters and a finish. Excited for the second short story collection and the Hellboy in Hell collection.

    I read the individual issues, not this collected edition, so my rating doesn't take into account any bonus content. In my opinion the arc included in this omnibus edition was the high water mark of the Mignolaverse.

    I only read these stories in bits and pieces when they were first appearing, so when I saw this HUGE 500+ page omnibus edition in the comic shop the other day I decided to spring for it... the price point is fantastic at something like $25.99. This book includes Darkness Calls, The Wild Hunt, and The Storm and the Fury. The scope here is vast and mythic, pulling threads from the various Hellboy tales like "Wake the Devil," Arthurian lore, and more to craft a huge tale.

The scope here is vast and mythic, pulling threads from the various Hellboy tales like "Wake the Devil," Arthurian lore, and more to craft a huge tale. Duncan Fegredo has a great line that riffs on Mike Mignola's iconic blocky style, but Fegredo inserts wonderful details, textures, and a certain special something that makes this definitely his own book... It's great to have this full set of stories with his art all in one volume. The plotting can be a bit discursive and even off-putting at times... Some important moments happen interstitially between scenes (such as the fate of the Wild Hunt) and the reader must put things together by inference and guesswork. There is also a lot of speechifying as ancient helpers and villians alike drop copious amounts of exposition on Hellboy, and in turn the reader. But somehow I find these scenes to be amongst the most stirring in the book and in Hellboy in general... Mignola and co. have found a way to make these moments full of import, history, and menace. I can't emphasize what a value these Omnibus editions are... Not the most impressive format, but pound for pound (and yes this is a heavy book) I don't think you'll find a comic with a higher value ratio.

    Best one yet. All the pieces that have been laid out are really coming together in this book.

    That shit was intense! A must own!!! Hedgehog ftw! "Koshchei the deathless. His soul is inside an egg, inside a duck, inside a rabbit, inside a goat, and the Baba Yaga's hidden the goat so he cannot be killed." - best character introduction ever.

    It's really great! You should read it! (just don't let your 7 year old daughter sneak a look because she's used to reading X-Men and Teen Titans and maybe even a little CHEW, because after reading just a few pages of this on the sly, she later will confess to you that she saw a LOT of bad words and the panels with the weird purple wart on the demon guy were very scary and likely to give her nightmares).

    The Hellboy epic moves into saga with this massive tale. Hellboy’s heart and motivation shine through in the most difficult and tempting circumstances. It is gratifying reading a long-running comic book where the hero has arcs, changes, and loses and gains friends and lovers, and ends up somewhere new.

    This continues the story by Mike Mignola, and though the art is not his in this book, Duncan Fegredo manages to do a very similar style, so this book doesn't look "alien". I've always thought that Neil Gaiman's "The Sandman" suffered a bit from having too many artists and styles, and that doesn't happen here.
