5.0 out of 5 stars The one and only
If you are new to Hellboy, this probably isn't the best place to start: read Seed of Destruction, then Wake the Devil, but make sure you come back to this one next! If you're not new to Hellboy and haven't read this yet - what are you waiting for? MM's beautiful and atmospheric artwork and dry, understated writing make this another triumph. Hundreds of people are doing...

3.0 out of 5 stars Great book, poor advertising.
Awesome comic, Mignola is amazing as always. Although, some issues with the buyer.

The product was marketed as in "very good condition" and "like new". Upon first inspection this seemed to be the case. Then the book fell out of the paperback cover. The spine had broken and the glue had worn off.

5.0 out of 5 stars The one and only, 23 July 2005
This review is from: Hellboy Volume 5: Conquerer Worm - NEW EDITION!: Conquerer Worm v. 5 (Hellboy (Dark Horse Paperback)) (Paperback)
If you are new to Hellboy, this probably isn't the best place to start: read Seed of Destruction, then Wake the Devil, but make sure you come back to this one next! If you're not new to Hellboy and haven't read this yet - what are you waiting for? MM's beautiful and atmospheric artwork and dry, understated writing make this another triumph. Hundreds of people are doing horror-themed work in all sorts of genres these days, and unfortunately most of it is pretty tacky. This isn't. It's the real deal, and I reckon M.R.James himself would approve. Hate modern horror? Hate comics? If you are at all drawn to the darker side, you will find much to admire in Mignola's work anyway.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yay!! and nay??, 24 April 2008
This review is from: Hellboy Volume 5: Conquerer Worm - NEW EDITION!: Conquerer Worm v. 5 (Hellboy (Dark Horse Paperback)) (Paperback)
Sadly this is the last, boo hoo, in the main story arc of Hellboy's time at the BPRD. Back in the day, Lobster Johnson led an attack on Hitler's space program, but failed and the Nazis were able to launch the first man into space. Now, after sixty years, Hellboy and Roger (Now implanted by Bureau scientists with a bomb in case he goes off the rails) have to travel to a ruined castle in Norway to intercept the returning capsule, and its single passenger...the conqueror worm. More nasty, slimy creatures in this one! EEEEeeew. Plus the old nazi head in jar, herman von klempt, now has a body!! This is pretty intense, and the ending, well you'll have to read it! There's a good epilogue too which ties up some loose ends. That Rasputin, cant do anything right!

Read all the BPRD and Weird Tales too if you need more Hellboy action! So cool.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another epic adventure from Mike Mignola, 16 Aug 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Hellboy Volume 5: Conquerer Worm - NEW EDITION!: Conquerer Worm v. 5 (Hellboy (Dark Horse Paperback)) (Paperback)
To quote this book's introduction, Mike Mignola is a genius. Not only is he an incredible artist but he can also write pretty darn good comic scripts! After reading all of the other, previous Hellboy comics I was expecting something good, what I got when I brought Conqueror Worm was something astounding, I mean it not only brings together the continuing story from Seed of Destruction and Wake the Devil but it also involves Depression-era crime fighter Lobster Johnson and with a crazy name like that he's gotta be good, right? If you have read the other Hellboy comics and enjoyed them then buy Conqueror Worm.

5.0 out of 5 stars It keeps getting better and better, 22 July 2011

This review is from: Hellboy Volume 5: Conquerer Worm - NEW EDITION!: Conquerer Worm v. 5 (Hellboy (Dark Horse Paperback)) (Paperback)
I began reading the Hellboy comics after seeing the movies and boy do I wish I had given them a chance before. The art work is fantastic and incredibly atmospheric. It's amazing the way that Mignola manages to capture the characters in perpetual darkness, looming in and out of the frame... It blends supernatural with pithy one-liners to perfection.
