Format: Paperback
"Hellboy: The Bride of Hell and Others" is my favorite kind of Hellboy. As much as I enjoy Hellboy's continuity adventures like Darkness Calls and "The Fury", I really like Hellboy best just running around various countries, having encounters with the weird and the strange, the ghosts and the ghouls. I think it is because so much Lovecraftian weird fiction were originally barely linked short stories, and that is the format that suits the genre best.

This volume collects collaborations between Mike Mignola and three artists. For a long time I was deeply opposed to any non-Mignola drawn Hellboy and refused to buy it. I have seen too many writer/artists transition to writer-only because drawing a book takes a lot more work. I didn't want to support that. But books like "The Bride of Hell and Others" show me to be completely in the wrong. Mignola has a keen eye for his work, and has carefully curated a collection of artists who each "get" Hellboy entirely and stay in Mignola's world while still contributing something unique.

Comics legend Richard Corben does three stories, "Hellboy in Mexico", "Hellboy: Double Feature of Evil", and "Hellboy: The Bride of Hell". I have been a fan of Corben since his "Heavy Metal" days, and he is my favorite of all the non-Mignola artists. Corben has done beautiful adaptations of Edgar Allan Poe and Lovecraft, so his Mignola works fits right into the genre. Corben's artwork is so unique, yet somehow his vision is just perfect for Hellboy.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Andrew C Wheeler VINE VOICE on January 28, 2012
Format: Paperback
Mike Mignola apparently got tired of Hellboy some time ago -- perhaps while working on the movies, which I vainly hoped would send him back to his creation rejuvenated and ready to tell stories entirely by himself for a while -- and the last few collections of Hellboy stories have shown it. Hellboy isn't fighting monsters to save the world anymore; Mignola is just trying to fit in little stories into holes in his continuity, using whatever world-mythological monsters and collaborators have come to hand most recently.

(I may be overly negative here, in part because I like Mignola's more ambitious stories better, in part because I like his art, and in part because he keeps working with Richard Corben, whose people have always looked like rubbery walking corpses to me.)
THE BRIDE OF HELL is yet another miscellaneous Hellboy collection, with stories illustrated by Corben, Scott Hampton, Kevin Nowlan, and -- wonder of wonders! -- even an eight-page story by Mignola himself. It advances Hellboy's story not one inch, but does tell entertaining slices of his history, particularly -- I'm chagrined to point out -- a '50s-set piece with Corben in which Hellboy teams up with Mexican wrestlers to fight local monsters. None of this is necessary, and it all feels like wheel-spinning, or as if Mignola has stepped too far back from his creation (co-writing all of the "B.P.R.D." stories, only writing most of these), turning himself into the producer of Hellboy's world rather than the creator of his stories. If you like Hellboy, this is more of him, but this kind of thing isn't why you like Hellboy.

Format: Paperback
This is a collection of previously published material. It includes "Hellboy in Mexico," "Hellboy: Double Feature of Evil," "Hellboy: The Bride of Hell," "Hellboy: The Sleeping and the Dead," "Hellboy: The Whittier Legacy," and "Hellboy: Buster Oakley Gets His Wish". All were written by Mike Mignola, with a variety of artists on the visual chores. Each story is prefaced with an introduction by Mignola that tells where he got the idea for the story and when it was originally published.

If you aren't familiar with Hellboy, don't worry. It isn't really hard to figure out. Each story is capable of standing on its own or contributing to a collection like this. All you really need to know is that, despite his appearance, Hellboy is a good guy. And, again, it's made obvious early on.

The stories are nicely varied in this collection, giving a decent overview of the Hellboy universe. The Mexico story was both funny and tragic. The Double Feature had a terribly freaky framing sequence with a couple of nice little stories. The Bride story was the usual misdirection and a character that was actually fairly sympathetic, although evil. The Sleeping story added a LOT to the Hellboy world, and if you know much about that world, you'll understand what I mean. The Whittier story was probably the weakest of the lot, with a bunch of frenzied activity in a handful of pages that wasn't as easy to follow as the other tales. Buster Oakley was just plain hilarious. My favorite story was probably the first, as the mix of sadness and fun just worked for me.

I was introduced to Hellboy many years ago by my hairdresser, and I started to love the character almost immediately. Readers unfamiliar with him may find him hard to like, but I promise you won't have trouble understanding the stories. If you already enjoy Hellboy, this is a must get. If you haven't met him yet, it's not a terrible place to start. Definitely recommended.

More About the Author

Mike Mignola is best known as the multiple award-winning creator, writer, and artist of "B.P.R.D." and "Hellboy", but has fostered several other projects like "The Amazing Screw-On Head" and "Baltimore" with Christopher Golden. Although he began working as a professional cartoonist in the early 1980s, drawing 'a little bit of everything for just about everybody' - including characters like Batman and Wolverine - he was also a production designer on the Disney film "Atlantis: The Lost Empire". Mignola also acted as a visual consultant to Guillermo del Toro on "Blade 2" and the film versions of Hellboy, which were broadly adapted by del Toro from the original comic series. Mike Mignola currently lives in southern California with his wife, daughter, and cat.
