4.0 out of 5 stars Info. for Prospective Buyers 12 Feb 2005
For anyone who doesn't know Hellboy - imagine Sam Spade as a demon superhero investigating supernatural threats H.P. Lovecraft might have written and you're somewhere close.
Admittedly this is not the best of the Hellboy stories - Mike Mignola admits in an afterword that he lost control of the plot (the comic originally appeared monthly) - and if I were only marking the story I'd probably have wanted to give it 3.5 stars. Nonetheless, it is definitely worth reading with the trademark Hellboy mix of humour, action and horror, and the noir art as ever is wonderful (pushing it from 3.5 to a deserved 4).
A word of warning: although this is marked as vol.2 of the Hellboy series, there are stories in vol.3 'The Chained Coffin and Others' which precede 'Wake the Devil' chronologically.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wake the devil side 16 Jan 2009
"Hellboy Volume 1: Seed of Destruction" pitted our devilish anti-hero against the evil Russian sorcerer Rasputin.

But that adventure is not the end of Hellboy's clashes with Rasputin. "Hellboy Volume 2: Wake the Devil" ups the ante, with plenty of horrific action and a more complex three-way storyline. And Hellboy himself gets to see a bit more of the nature he's determined to deny completely -- and a destiny he wants no part in. Poor guy.

The BPRD sends three squads out to to find an ancient vampire in Romania ("Paprika chicken, baby!"), and Hellboy finds himself working solo. But soon he runs afoul of a bunch of Nazis who serve Rasputin's spirit -- and a bunch of mythic creatures that lurk in the castle's depths, including the vampiric Giurescu and a bunch of savage giant birds, who serve a ghastly, immortal lamia in the depths of his castle.

Elsewhere, Abe is falling into a trap of Rasputin's (since he stabbed the guy to death), and Liz's powers run amuck when her team finds an alchemist's lab with a seemingly dead homunculus. And Hellboy's fight with the lamia has shocking repercussions, when he finds himself hurtling into a darkness where his true purpose is revealed -- and he must choose what his destiny will be.

Lamia, skeleton vampires, Baba Yaga and Nazi heads -- Mike Mignola knows how to craft a monster-filled universe, where a demonic anti-hero seems downright normal. And while the first two books about him are technically separate stories, "Wake the Devil" seems more like the second half of the story started in "Seed of Destruction." It's also graced with a more complex, gradually-unfolding plot that branches out in unexpected directions.

Mignola does leave some plot threads hanging (what happens with Liz and the homunculus?
