What a character!!! And what a book!!!, 9 Jun 2013
I have known Hellboy via the B&W previews in the Dark Horse Presents comic book. It was a shock but no more. I have followed the career of Mignola because I really love his art. But for Hellboy, not so much.
Then came the movies. Then came the B.P.R.D. comic books. True hits in my face!!
But quid of Hellboy?? How to start reading his stories?? The SC trades were and still are diificult to find for some.
And Dark Horse, Blessed His Glorious Name (by Grud!!), released the Library Edition.
OK, the books are not cheap. But what you have in your hands is the excellency of the highest qualities you can find in printed HC graphic novels.
Over-sized book, strong paper, sewn booklets binding, highest printing and colours processes, a book design at its best. Frankly, you must not by pass this edition if you are a Mignola's fan and/or an Hellboy's fan. No way!!!
What's the best in this already the best of the best (the DC's Abolute are a level below despite their slipcase!!): complete reprint of numerous SC trades and in their best colours. Ton of extras, delightful little draws along the book. You really have a book well worth its price. It's not a bargain book sold at an expensive price. It's an excellent book sold at a bargain price.
My only advice (or two!!): buy it!!! (and the other ones too!!!)
They will marvelously fill your shelf with the big B.P.R.D. Plague of Frogs HC omnibuses.
(be sure that your shelf can handle the heavy weight!!!)
