About the Author
Mike Mignola was born in 1960 in Berkeley, California and grew up in nearby Oakland, the eldest son of a tough and leathery cabinetmaker. His fascination with ghosts and monsters began at an early age (he doesn't remember why) and reading Dracula at age 12 introduced him to Victorian literature and folklore from which he has never recovered. Besides comic books, Mike worked on Francis Ford Coppola's film Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992), as a production designer for the Disney film Atlantis: The Lost Empire (2001) and was the Visual Consultant to director Guillermo del Toro on Blade II (2002), Hellboy (2004), and Hellboy 2: The Golden Army (2008). Mike lives somewhere in Southern California with his wife, daughter and cat.

As always we have great writing and art. Even more than in the previous volume we have many fascinating and entertaining supporting characters, from Hellboy's Spanish bride, through the Vampire of Prague, and on to insane mapmakers, incompetent, (and amusing), doctors, Hellboy's sister, and a large cast from Pandemonium itself. While the story moves around a good bit it's easy enough to follow through to the end, and that end is satisfying although not, to me, a total wow.
The only problem is that in order to make room for all of these characters, all of the plotting and digressions, and the story's conclusion, Hellboy has to take a bit of a backseat and sometimes drifts out of the story entirely. He does a lot of listening and reacting. I like it when Mignola goes off on a storytelling tangent, and I like joining Hellboy on the sidelines while other characters carry on, but sometimes it felt like Hellboy wasn't in his own comic.
That said, this Volume fits nicely in with Volume 1, there's certainly enough Hellboy to satisfy, and the whole story hangs together nicely. It's elegant, refreshing, and especially witty, and I don't know how you can do much better than that.
