Overview

The Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense has sent Hellboy out on what will be his final mission. At the end of World War II, Lobster Johnson led an Allied attack on Hitler’s space program, but not before the Nazis were able to launch the first man into space. Now, after sixty years, Hellboy and Roger the Homunculus, who’s been implanted by Bureau scientists with a bomb, travel to the ruined castle in Norway to intercept the returning capsule, and its single passenger…the conqueror worm!

About the Author

Mike Mignola's fascination with ghosts and monsters began at an early age; reading Dracula at age twelve introduced him to Victorian literature and folklore, from which he has never recovered. Starting in 1982 as a bad inker for Marvel Comics, he swiftly evolved into a not-so-bad artist. By the late 1980s, he had begun to develop his own unique graphic style, with mainstream projects like Cosmic Odyssey and Batman: Gotham by Gaslight. In 1994, he published the first Hellboy series through Dark Horse. There are thirteen Hellboy graphic novels (with more on the way), several spin-off titles (B.P.R.D., Lobster Johnson, Abe Sapien, and Sir Edward Grey: Witchfinder), prose books, animated films, and two live-action films starring Ron Perlman. Along the way he worked on Francis Ford Coppola's film Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992), was a production designer for Disney's Atlantis: The Lost Empire (2001), and was the visual consultant to director Guillermo del Toro on Blade II (2002), Hellboy (2004), and Hellboy II: The Golden Army (2008). Mike's books have earned numerous awards and are published in a great many countries. Mike lives in Southern California with his wife, daughter, and cat.

I fully understand Mignola's desire to move Hellboy more into the realm of fantasy after this story, but what a great last BPRD mission this was! All the great villains are there: Rasputin, Hecate, Herman von Klempt, and Baba Yaga. New (at that point) characters Lobster Johnson and Roger the Homunculus are amazing to read, and the plot moves fast but isn't over quickly. Hellboy defeats the Nazis who brought him to this world once and for all, and the first stage of his journey is complete. This volume will really show you why Hellboy is one of the most respected comic book characters, and why he is important to a modern audience. Read this whether you are a long time fan or new to the series! *Note: Reading "Hellboy: Wake the Devil" first is recommended.

Hellboy, Mignola art, and Lobster Johnson, totally slick. Creepy Nazi projects with twisted art and craziness after craziness. Totally worth the read and the pictures are so slick. I've always been the conventional Bryne and Jim Lee fan, but once I got a look at the stuff in these books, I was hooked. Take a look, and if disturbed take it with a grain of salt, its just a pulp/horror/sci-fi comic...

I just love Hellboy. The artwork, the mix of action, humor, and humanity, the fact that in this collection one of the villains is a disembodied head in a floating jar...
