Book Description

Dark Horse presents new editions of the entire Hellboy line with new covers, beginning with Seed of Destruction, the basis of director Guillermo del Toro's upcoming film. Hellboy is one of the most celebrated comics series in recent years. The ultimate artists' artist and a great storyteller whose work is in turns haunting, hilarious, and spellbinding. Mike Mignola has won numerous awards in the comics industry and beyond. When strangeness threatens to engulf the world, a strange man will come to save it. Sent to investigate a mystery with supernatural overtones, Hellboy discovers the secrets of his own origins, and his link to the Nazi occultists who promised Hitler a final solution in the form of a demonic avatar. "The best horror comic in a generation. This Mignola guy is a wizard" -Frank Miller

5.0 out of 5 stars A truly original and gothic masterpiece 5 Dec. 2001
By Big Vig
Format:Paperback
This 'Hellboy' graphic novel is comprised of several stories that were originaly sold individually the book includes 'Pancakes', 'The Nature of the Beast', 'King Vold', 'Heads', 'Goodbye,Mister Tod', 'The Varcolac' and the title story The 'Right Hand of Doom' and finally 'Box full of Evil 'which in my opinion is the finest 'Hellboy' story i have read so far, although i have not yet read the very first 'Hellboy' comics 'The Seed of Destruction' and
'Wake the Devil'.
The creator of Hellboy Mike Mignola is such a skilled artist and storyteller, his ideas are so well realised by this exquisite series of comic books. I love the way he has 'Hellboy' solving these fantastic mysteries in places such as Sussex and 'Hellboy' himself arrived on this earth in a farm house in East Bromich !
Well done Mike Mignola,keep up the great work. I stongly urge anyone who enjoys atmospheric horror books or films to start collecting anything 'Hellboy'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deep inside Hellboy's folklore 14 Aug. 2002
Format:Paperback
I usually prefer long stories but the quality of Mignola’s work plus the slick spirits of the Hellboy’s character make it ideal for collections as well.
As in “The Chained Coffin”, we have here another fine collection of Hellboy’s stories from very different periods of his life, delving deeper inside the character’s psychology and origin.
The initial very short and humoristic story “Pancakes” on Hellboy’s childhood perfectly introduces the reader in the Hellboy’s folklore, which lines up monstrous things alongside every day issues.
This book is also a good opportunity to appreciate Hellboy’s common denominators in very different scenarios from Norway to Japan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hand of doom, crown of fire 16 Jan. 2009
By EA Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
When Hellboy isn't saving the world from imminent destruction, he's doing a lot of little odd jobs across the world.

And by "odd jobs," I mean brief paranormal cases involving vampires, flying hunters, homunculi, "pamcakes" and disembodied heads. "Hellboy Volume 4: The Right Hand of Doom" collects a number of the demon anti-hero's assorted adventures, ranging from a new and unknown breakfast to a devilish plot to conquer the world. All in a day's work.

It opens with a baby Hellboy being given a plate of "pamcakes," which he pronounces to be "yucky." But when a general sternly orders him to eat one bite, the consequences are literally hell-raising.

Seriously, isn't that the cutest thing ever?

Many years later, Hellboy is called on to deal with mythological creatures large and small -- the Saint Leonard worm (a dragon) running amuck in a forest, a spectral huntsman followed by berserkers in wolf pelts, a Japanese house full of bouncing heads, a seance gone horribly wrong (with Lovecraftian tentacles!), and the supervampire Varcolac who is so large he can "eat the moon."

And though Hellboy tries to ignore his past and supposed destiny, he learns something quite disturbing when a kindly priest gives him an ancient, mysterious drawing of the "right hand of doom" -- which looks suspiciously like Hellboy's big rocky hand.

And a demon (which looks suspiciously like a housefly) sealed into a box is stolen from a secret compartment, and is soon "serving" a human master. Turns out they want to lure Hellboy to that place, in the hopes of stealing the evil, apocalyptic powers that he has already renounced.
