Editorial Reviews

The loss of a good friend to vampires has left Hellboy in a downward-spiraling funk. He drowns his grief in alcohol until he receives an offer that he can't refuse: an ultimate wrestling match with a vicious Frankenstein monster. A fierce graphic novel number.

I¿ve always been a huge fan of the Hellboy graphic novels. There is something about the way that Mignola writes a story. At first glance it feels sparse but by the time you finish you realize that he really jammed a lot into a story. But I think this book fell a little short for me. I am not sure if it was because the review copy I was reading was poor quality and hard to read. I was looking forward to the story. I love the imagery of Mexico, luchadors, and the Day of the Dead. However this story felt rushed and really just disconnected from the world of Hellboy. The art I think is a ¿love it¿ or ¿hate it¿ deal. It tells the story well enough, but the style really lacks a visual appeal to it. All the characters feel kind of lumpy, almost like every character was the hunchback of Notre Dame. In the end this book feels kind of like a throw away, made for the hardcore Hellboy fans. Do yourself a favor though and read The Wild Hunt, The Storm, and The Fury. Those are some awesome Hellboy stories. Reviewed by Chris for Book Sake.
