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.

Format: Paperback
Picking up from "Volume 9: The Wild Hunt" (Vols 10 and 11 were collections of Hellboy short stories), Hellboy faces his destiny as the potential destroyer or saviour of the world.

While this is a potentially exciting finale, the book feels oddly flat. Hellboy doesn't have many lines and his wit and charm is mostly missing (until his final scene). I think part of the problem was that this didn't feel like the end you would expect. I expected a summation, a kind of retrospective taking in his friends and family, the adventures he's been on, a look back on the long, long journey he's been on to get him to this, his final hour. Instead, there's a brief introduction and then Hellboy's plunged into endless fighting against monsters for the rest of the book.

And yet how else could it have ended? Nearly every book in the series has seen Hellboy punching out the monster at the end, why break the formula now? Well, sure, but it still felt rote and somewhat impersonal to see Hellboy fighting the monster at the end and then... what happens, happens.

But this is the comics world, it's all origins and middle stories. While it purports to have endings in the form of deaths of famous and favourite characters, those characters always come back - always. While this book ends the main Hellboy series, I wouldn't expect that this is the end of the character, not by a long shot.

So fans of the series get an ending but as with most endings, its unsatisfactory and doesn't live up to readers' expectations. But it's an ending. And as said by one of the characters in the book about Rag Narok "it is the end. But it is also a new beginning". Methinks the red guy ain't down for the count.

I think that the reason Hellboy is such a good read is because it is more than just a story. It is a modern myth in a way that surpasses any comic book hero that has come before. The reason for that is that Hellboy tackles questions of duality, God, the universe, and evil, and does so with unflinching courage and honesty. Comics like Superman or even the more macho Batman seem superficial by comparison because they do not address the big questions like Hellboy does. Their authors and producers simply don't have the guts to go there.

For example, Hellboy's enemies in this collection are two mythic figures which have frequently been the darling heroines of many new age tales, and even the focus of worship in pagan cults: Viviane and Morgan Le Fay. Just as he doesn't back away from God, Mignola and his creation Hellboy do not flinch away from the Goddess either. In fact, in many stories Hellboy's enemies have often been goddesses like Hecate, the Baba Yaga of Russia, and others. Sometimes the gods and goddesses are his allies, as in this collection too. Queen Mab is his ally, and Vasilisa of Russian myths also comes to his aid in the end.... I won't give away more of the story. You are in for a treat.

Format: Paperback
With the shocking revelation of Hellboy's ancient ancestor and his newfound claim to the throne, we're thrown headlong into a whirlwind adventure that takes us across rural England and the realms beyond. Once again our crimson champion must decide whether it is better to rule in Hell or serve in Heaven, a choice that will set him, as well as Earth, on a path that neither can turn back from.

Duncan Fegredo's tenure on Hellboy is quite possibly my favorite of all of the series, second being Richard Corben's various turns on Makomba and other stories. Fegredo's line work elevates what Mignola started with in Seeds of Destruction and takes it to the extreme. There is an incredible kinetic energy to every page even during scenes of conversation and exposition. His creatures are appropriately menacing, gnarled, and beautiful and possess a substantial quality that isn't always evident when other artist try their hand at old HB. If you're all ready a fan of the series and haven't read this volume, I strongly urge you to right your wrongs and spend a few hours with this book and take time to really pore over it. You won't be sorry.

Most comic readers know that this is the end for Hellboy. It is a magnificent ending, but I'll miss the big red guy. He's been a great standard for comics for years and Mike Mignola wrote him well. Enjoyable, if sad.

Duncan and Dave's art are, as usual, top notch. This book really feels like the finale it's meant to be. You can feel the story building really from right when Duncan started in Darkness Calls. I loved what Mignola did to build this up and that's originally what hooked me to the series. The hero gives everything he's got to give his friends a chance to win. I'm not exactly sure how the series will continue but I plan on reading it.

The only thing I've ever felt that was missing from the series was more interaction between HB and his BPRD buddies. Granted a lot of time he was in Africa, lost at sea etc but the fact that he never really spoke to his friends kind of bugged me. I know he sent a letter or two but these are his friends, wouldn't they communicate with each other more? That's probably just me and really it's only me nit picking a great series.
