If I have a real name, I've never known it. I'm called Hellboy.

I recently discovered comiXology (mostly for reading [b:Fullmetal Alchemist, Vol. 1|870|Fullmetal Alchemist, Vol. 1 (Fullmetal Alchemist, #1)|Hiromu Arakawa|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1388179331l/870._SY75_.jpg|1959820]). Hellboy was one of the comiXology Unlimited suggested reads. Free trial? Let's do it.

I greatly enjoyed the movie movie (the 2004 one, I haven't seen the 2019 one)... but as good as that was, the comic is better.

It's got ACTION!



MYTHOLOGY!



Creepy tentacles!



And even touching moments.



It's a bit creepy and violent, so maybe not for you if that's not your thing. But if those are? Give it a go! I don't think you'll regret it.


I'd be the first to admit that I have no shortage of faults.
But if I had to pick one, the one that's gotten me into the most trouble over the years...

...it would be that I sometimes get angry.


Overall, graphic novels have a lot of potential for telling a different sort of stories than books, audiobooks, movies, or TV and I really should read more of them. This seems like an excellent place to start. ( )

This is kind of weird for me, because I was totally ready to give this 5 stars when I finished, but as soon as I got here, I instantly hit 4. I've read other Hellboy collections, and liked them a lot, so I wanted to start at the beginning. You can tell that this is early on, as there's a lot of those "hello new reader who just picked up issue 4, here is what is happening" expository moments. Hellboy doesn't seem to have developed that distinct gruffness that ensured Ron Perlman would be headlining the movies, and the supporting cast doesn't seem to be filled in quite yet. Mike Mignola's art is still spectacular, though, and the villains are suitably creepy.

What the hell, I'll change it back to 5. ( )

1994 – Present

Review by Karl Wolff

Mike Mignola’s mid-1990s comic book Hellboy, published by indie press Dark Horse, spins the tale of a group of heroic misfits working for the Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense. The misfits include the eponymous Hellboy, a demon snatched from the pits of Hell by occultist Nazis and saved by a crack force of US Army GIs. There is Abe Sapien, a sentient aquatic humanoid found in the basement of the White House during the Lincoln years. And there is Liz Sherman, a human blowtorch. When she gets angry, look out! In the comic books, they fight to save the world from Nazis, demons, and all manner of Lovecraftian horrors. (Mignola dedicated the first volume, Seed of Destruction to Jack Kirby and H.P. Lovecraft.)

Genre fusions are a tricky business. They don’t always succeed. Cop Rock is just one example of respected craftsman (Steve Bochco), blending genres in a show that ended in unmitigated disaster. In terms of writing craft, consider the Cosmopolitan. For this cocktail to succeed and actually taste good, specific ingredients must be mixed in exact proportions. Mignola mixes a heady concoction together. The ingredients are a cigar-chomping, back-talking, trench coat-wearing badass hell demon as the hero; occult-obsessed Nazis; a resurrected Rasputin; and monsters and villains coming from world mythologies and Lovecraftian nightmares. It’s a miracle this unwieldy combination didn’t collapse into a vortex of suck. But to the credit of Mignola and the Hellboy writing and artistic staff, he wraps these disparate elements around a coherent mythos. Not only was it successful, Hellboy continues to be published in individual comic issues, but also in graphic novel collections. It even spawned a successful spin-off series, B.P.R.D., which started in 2003 and continues to this day. One final note, this time on the graphic style, then we shall plunge into the narrative meat of the series. As you see from the cover art, Hellboy is drawn in a flat blocky style, full of shadows and solid colors. Mignola’s style uses a lot of chiaroscuro, making his work look like 19th century posters. He conveys a lot through very few pen strokes.

The spare style complements the storyline. The comic books chronicle the story of Hellboy’s origin and B.P.R.D.’s battle with Grigori Rasputin. Seed of Destruction begins in 1944 on a remote island in Scotland, the Nazis, along with Rasputin, attempt to initiate Project Ranga Rok, to create a doomsday weapon to vanquish the Allies. Instead of summoning Ogdru Jahad, the dragon from Revelation, Hellboy appears and is taken into custody of the US Army. Trevor Buttenholm, an academic working for B.P.R.D., cares for the young hell demon. (From Buttenholm’s upbringing, Hellboy becomes a practicing Roman Catholic.) Throughout the books, Hellboy and Rasputin battle each other until Rasputin’s spirit is imprisoned in an acorn after Hecate refuses to do his bidding.

Hellboy continues the tradition of stereotypically evil races (used in the fantasy sense) fighting for humanity. We see this with the vampire Angel in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. In the trade paperbacks, Hellboy is granted “honorary human rights” by the U.N. and the Pope. Being human is less about the species than about politically based sanction. “You’re human because we say you are.” We can see this today in the way that the Republicans have legitimized Mitt Romney as a presidential candidate, even though the Evangelical Right and Mainstream Christianity in general has less than positive things to say about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. “The Mormons are an evil cult that is not Christian. Oh, Romney, he’s cool.” In a more literal sense, being human in the Hellboy universe is a very sketchy thing. Humanity’s constantly threat from supernatural evils of all varieties. It’s almost as bad as the Warhammer 40K universe. Because humanity is small, weak, and soft, it requires a different kind of hero. In this case, Hellboy, Abe Sapien, and the others who work for the B.P.R.D.

For those who like the pulps of the Thirties, Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, and a dense dark mythology, Hellboy is a great place to start. It has everything: hell demons, heads in jars, Nazis, Rasputin, Hecate, golem, and frogs. That pesky plague of frogs.

This is the second time I've read this, the first being around the time the first or second movie came out, but I remember not bothering with reading the rest. Why? I honestly don't know.

This has a great Cthulhu vibe to it, mixing old Nazis, Rasputin, private eyes, sea gods, and even a misspelling of Ereshkigal, Sumerian goddess of the underworld. What's not to like?

Well, maybe I was just in a mood then or a mood now, but by the time I finished this volume today, I'm in the mood to keep on going and enjoying the series. It's Hellboy! Didn't we all enjoy the movies? lol

Mignola's use of color and shadows is interesting to view, but the story didn't hook me. It's fine, and of course the characters are unique, but it felt like more of the same. ( )

The book is an action-adventure, not out of place compared to so many other comics with outrageous-looking heroes and mystical events, but the sense of being part of something bigger sets it apart.
