A Hellboy adventure before he ate the pancakes...just not very good.
…not very impressed with “Hellboy: The Midnight Circus.” It is composed without any of the magic, mystery and fun that fans have come to expect from Mike Mignola’s story-telling. Mignola’s distinctive drawing style is missed here too. There have been other artists to do much more than adequate justice to Hellboy. Rich Corben’s illustration of “The Crooked Man” and other past Hellboy pieces he’s done are stand outs and are especially note-worthy. Artist’s Shawn Alexander and Scott Hampton too have a flare for the gothic and were great contributors to the legend. Sadly; Duncan Ferrero’s art looks good at a glance but is hardly compelling under scrutiny. This combined with Mignola’s lack-luster proses leads to a disappointing outing for the reader. In fairness “Midnight Circus” could stand as a fairly good introduction for new readers but as a whole will fall short for the committed fan.Was this review helpful?
