    While I prefer the longer Hellboy stories, these are still fun. There just isn't a lot of depth. I do like the idea of the British version of B.P.R.D., S.I.M.Received a review copy from Dark Horse and Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.

    Another nice little collection of stories from Hellboy's past. Anthologies like this tend to be a bit patchy, so I'm happy to report this one's pretty solid throughout. There's nothing amazing in here but it was enjoyable and certainly scratched my Hellboy itch in the absence of anything new from Mike Mignola himself.

    I've been enjoying these short stories of Hellboy's early days at BPRD. It's a smart way to keep capitalizing on Hellboy's popularity without forcing the story to continue past Hellboy in Hell. I wish they were of a higher quality though. As it is most of the stories are enjoyable but forgettable. Richard Corben has a short story featured in this volume. It's nice - Corben is one of my favourite artists - but again, pretty forgettable. I feel lik...

    In these difficult times it's heartening to know that at least one comics hero who got his start punching Nazis is still upholding that grand tradition. In most other respects, sadly, this is a lacklustre Hellboy collection. Three stories, the first of which starts promisingly but abandons its cast and setting halfway through for genetic Hellboy brawling. The second is a done-in-one ghost story, with decent visuals but a flat script. The third is...

    So far I've really been enjoying the Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. titles, and while I love the cover on this one, I didn't dig the stories quite as much as the two previous volumes. The opening story with its Nazi flying saucers and all is pretty great, and the last one has fun art and sets up a bunch of threads that will, presumably, be further explored in future installments, but the total package feels a bit less than the sum of its parts, when co...

    Mike Mignola's Hellboy remains one of the most entertaining comics year after year and incarnation after incarnation. This latest series has been going back and revealing untold tales of the early days of the B.P.R.D. and Hellboy's youth. The stories are fun, light and reminiscent of Mignola's early work with the character. Good stuff!

    Mmmm, That's Some Good HellboyThis is the third "Hellboy and the B.P.R.D." collection, following on the 1952 and 1953 editions. I favor the 1953 collection out of the three but this one is a close second.We get three longer tales and one mini-tale. There is "Black Sun #1-2", "The Unreasoning Beast", "Ghost Moon #1-2", and a very short "Mirror". SOME MILD GENERAL PREMISE/PLOT SPOILERS follow."Black Sun" is a Nazi nutsy tale that consists mostly of...

    One of the frustrating things about reading Hellboy is that most of the main collections are not organized chronologically or thematically. It's just that the writers decided to tell a particular story or set of stories, and in order to release them to the trade paperback/hardcover market, they package them as the five or six issues that came out around the same time, whether or not they make sense as a single story.With the Hellboy & The BPRD st...

    A handful of Hellboy shorts that take place in 1954. My favorite story was probably "Ghost Moon", the one set in Hong Kong, though "Black Sun" was pretty good too, and was the most classic of Hellboy stories.

    Good short stories, I really don't like Richard Corben art style , his Hellboy is decent but the human characters are so ugly.

    Roberson really takes the conventional "show don't tell" method of comic storytelling and flips it on it's head. Here we have a whole lot of "tell don't show", and I'm really not feeling it for something so dear to my heart.
