Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
I owned Hellboy a review since volume1...after reading Strange Places it is no longer possible to postpone it...
The following are the reasons why Hellboy holds such a high place on my "all time favorite" comics list:

Artwork: simply amazing. Mignola's pen manipulates light and forms in such an unnatural yet expressive way. Hellboys artwork is a gateway to the fairy kingdom and is 100% responsible for the magnificently airy atmosphere of the comic. Reminds me the work of Hugo Pratt if that's not sacrilege...

Main Character: Hellboy is consistently antiheroic and totally not didactic. I love how pompous villain speeches are crushed on his casual cynicism. The epitome of cool without the lifestyle junk

Story line: Simple but powerful well researched and full of folklore from all over the world. And it does not take itself too seriously.

Not much else to say - One my favorite comic book to this day...

Format: Paperback
Mike Mignola is quite simply the best comic book artist out there. When you sit there and marvel at the sheer simplicity of his illustrations you can truly appreciate what a master of the craft he is. After all the key to comic book art is to be able to convey what is happening at a glance, this allows each cell to seemlessley flow into the next. But when you do start to muse over each picture you notice just how clever his style is. The simple rule is that what's in shadow is black and what isn't in shadow isn't black!

As for this book it is yet another sneeky peek into Hellboy's mysterious origins and even more interestingly the origins of the Ogdru Jahad. But of course like all of the other books Mignola manages to ask more questions than he answers! But hey isn't that why we love Hellboy!

Format: Paperback
Mignola is clearly more confident and able to bring Hellboy to places that he himself wants to bring this marvellous character. Strange Places follows Hellboy on a journey of finding himself and who he wants to be and though it doesn't actually end with Hellboy achieving this, it nevertheless tells us tales of woe that the character happed upon in his journies. The wonderful thing about the world of Hellboy is the array of characters and folklore that Mignola draws upon, and here within the pages of Strange Places is no exception. Hellboy is part of world that the reader knows little of, and through the eyes of Mignola and Hellboy, the reader becomes all the more aware of what both Mignola wants us to see and what Hellboy must endure being Anung Un Rama

By grr on 24 April 2008
Format: Paperback
Mike Mignola's latest Hellboy effort picks up with what happened after Hellboy left the B.P.R.D and his journey to Africa. Features plenty of Lovecraftian underwater monstrosities and some stroppy fairy types!

Certainly not the best in the Hellboy series but a welcome return for my favourite red guy. Plus it reveals a few more secrets about his origins and purpose in the "Third Wish." It also contains "the island" and some previously unpublished sketches and artwork. A must for Hellboy fans and collectors.

At times I felt like this volume was laying it on a bit thick with the exposition, but there's some great deepening of Hellboy's backstory and mythology in here, and the first story in particular is a creepy wee gem.
