    I loved this!!!!

    Beautifully drawn. But, mostly, this really emphasized how much I miss Mike's writing on the other books. This felt right in a way some of the other books haven't.

    I thought this issue was brilliant! Loved the story, the art, everything. More like this please!

    What an incredible book! Mike's writing was so on point, and combined with Adam's breathtaking art, Hellboy felt more grounded in the real world than at any other time I can remember.

    That last snapshot in the back almost made me tear up. Damn, I'm so impressed. Don't think I was expecting something this good.

    I was hoping for it, since Mike was writing it by himself.

    ain't that the truth, Mignola's such a visual storyteller even when he's not on art duty, he knows how to really spin an artist around his words. there's no fat on his stories.

    I did a thing I don't normally do; I've read this about 4 times already.

    Multiversity should be ashamed this wasn't their best single issue of the year. That fucking Elmer Fudd/Batman comic? Over this? Sheesh.

    The vote for that was done for that long before we got the preview PDF for this. But yeah, the Elmer Fudd/Batman thing is surprising to say the least.

    This was some old school Hellboy fun: Hellboy shows up, gets into trouble and then smacks a monster around. It's simplistic, but its fun.

    Probably the greatest single Mignolaverse issue for quite some time. I am enjoying the other stuff, but they often don't hit the high notes this one did (and noted that is because sometimes they are purposely 'quiet' stories).
    But this is the Mignola and guest artist combo at its best.

    Loved it!


    Edit: Matt, what happened to your post count?!
    New thought: I think I'll write another letter because of this one
