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...
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!

The story is excellent, however the condition of the book is clearly not new as advertised.Published 6 months ago by James C.
Mignola is clearly more confident and able to bring Hellboy to places that he himself wants to bring this marvellous character. Read morePublished on 23 Aug. 2008 by The Scribe
