Users who pulled this comic:


  1. Last issue was a lot of fun. Not the best vampire story by Mignola but still good. Art was pretty good too.

  2. yeah, i dug the art too 

  3. Something about the sequencing of the cells and pacing in this that just works so well. Scott Hampton’s use of that drawing-over-photos technique has me thinking of experimenting with it myself.

  4. Really fun stuff here. Lots of action going on and some dark humor involved. Mainly with a vampire’s head getting ‘popped’ off. Also, the art by Hampton and Stewart’s colors really make this a visual treat.


  5. Not into the art. There were times when it looked great, but in some panels Hellboy almost seemed cut and pasted from previous Hellboy issues (like at the end when the little girl is talking to him). It’s still Hellboy and therefore almost always top notch, but I was a bit disappointed with this mini.

  6. Really enjoyed this short arc. The art was super dark and creepy, perfect for this title from time to time.
