The heat is on!!! This third TPB edition features Hellboy , , along with a pin-up gallery. The general rating is an average result of individual ratings given to each short story contained here. They were well done, but they lacked of character development and since it was the beginning of the The heat is on!!!
They were well done, but they lacked of character development and since it was the beginning of the series, I expected to get to know what made thick each character. Also, the action was fair, but not something that awesome and leaving stuff without concluding properly.
Why those? Why not 3rd and 4th? I am glad to say that finally I enjoyed a lot the reading. Ireland, Hellboy is asked to rescue a baby who was kidnapped by fairies, to be able to do this, he had to make a task solicited by them, but the clock is ticking and the time is short.
Mike Mignola merged in a masterfully way several Irish folktales into this thrilling adventure. This was the only dissapointing in the TPB, Mignola done it just to fill the remnant pages of the original comic book where the previous short story was re-published, but definitely is too brief to have real time to enjoy it. She has curious habits. Russia, When you think that the short story finished, Mignola hits you with a final punch raising the whole impact of the tale. England, The young girl dissapeared in a hole at the grounds of the property.
Mignola adapted folklore stuff into a Christmas story with a creepy good ambiance and development. Hellboy never cared to check that place before in 50 years, but now he is getting to understand why he was so reluctant. Wonderful piece which give the name to the third TPB and adding a key event involving the origin of Hellboy. Eastern Europe, Hellboy and Prof. Kate Corrigan are sent by the BPRD to investigate the mysterious deaths of the entire population of a town, happened in one night.
Along with those deaths, a priest, old friend of Hellboy, died there too, the same night. Creepy good adventure, introducing the wonderful character of Kate Corrigan, and presenting a delicious mystery.
