    So two things crossed my mind when I picked up this title. Glad I waited because Hellboy (So far) is complete. So I'll be able to read it all. Second though after finishing this title is why in the blue (or red) hell did I wait so long to read this!?!?So if you don't know anything about Hellboy (how could you not?) He's basically a big devil looking ape-looking dude who joins others who are special to stop the evils of the world. Mostly this volu...

    There is something so seductive about he work of Mike Mignola and Hellboy himself (I cannot be the only one with board games and a reboot of the film franchise around the corner). And finally my wishes have been answered - the collected stories are finally coming out in Omnibus editions.I have long since been follow Hellboys antics and adventures however making sense of the various stories - their interwoven references and the suspicion that a fa...

    Solid 4 stars. Very nice art, distinctive style, definitely. The story (or stories) is very much original. I always enjoyed how the color red is underused in the panels so that when Hellboy shows up, he really pops and stands out. He's a very vibrant, bright red that leaps off the page.Absolutely hungry for more. It helps a lot that the Omnibus editions (coming out this year, starting with Volume 1 in May 2018) organize the graphic novels in chro...

    Behind a monk who's supposed to be dead, the relics portraying demons caste in stone by memo-americans hide in shadows, and we all miss his words because a portal to another world, another time, opens and some new nightmare bursts forth to end humanity. And to all this Red just sighs, cocks his gun, and fires back into the abyss.This omnibus gathered stories, many of which I've read already, but their arraignment, their updates colors, and their ...

    Took me long enough, but I finally started reading Hellboy. Maybe waiting for this omnibus to come out was a good idea. If your like me and not sure where to start with Hellboy, this volume is for you. Dark Horse is not only putting these out faster than most omnibus editions, but these are in reading order too. One reason I never read Hellboy before is because there are SO MANY different volumes it gets messy and confusing.So far I like Hellboy....

    Omnibus is the best bang for your buck and the perfect starting point. Omnibus is the best bang for your buck and the perfect starting point. Mike Mignola's artwork is amazing. Perfect balance of humor and action as well

    I've read these stories before (included here are the first two arcs plus some side stories, including the one that introduces Roger the Homunculus), so it's only lacking the spark of originality. Everything else is wonderful. Hellboy is a great character, almost always either over it or not even interested enough to care in the first place. He seems to get his rocks off by beating up on mythological creatures and/or Nazis and I think I can get b...

    Pulpy, fun, and a little zany with the supernatural. It's like Raymond Chandler and Ivan Reitman's original Ghostbusters had a baby.What really seals the deal is its phenomenal (and perfect) art style. Mike Mignola is truly one of a kind, and this collection is the first volume in a timeless masterpiece of pulpy art.

    I'd put this right up there with "The Dark Knight Returns" as one of the best comics I have ever read! The sorry was quite deep (lots of reading for a comic), love the use of mythology, and the artwork was very ominous.

    This book deserves a double reading: one for the Lovecraftian (with a touch of pulp fiction) story, and other just for the almost impressionistic art!

    Dialogue was a bit off but mignola's art is something else entirely.

    Great collection of the first Hellboy books. Remastered and crisp artwork throughout with fantastic concept art and never before seen tidbits at the end. A must have for any Hellboy completionist.

    Excellent collection of an excellent comic (can we call Hellboy a "classic" now?).

    The fun weirdness of Hellboy from the beginning of the series. I’m looking forward to the subsequent volumes.
