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

    I follow you guys on the boards all the time, but I don't really post much. Please write letters, no matter which lettercol or comic book they are to. The long standing tradition of editors publishing unsolicited letters from comics fans must live on!

    This was classic Mignola, classic Hellboy, and a hell of a holiday treat. That bittersweet note at the end? Just right.


    PS - Will the story be included in the chronological omnibuses next year?

    No, it won't. It is destined for a future Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. trade.

    What an amazing story. We really missed good old Mignola!

    Also, am I right, that this story and Mood Swings both happen on Christmas Eve?
    I guess, the year of event of KRAMPUNSNACHT is not correct.

    Krampusnacht was set on December 22 (72 hours prior to Christmas Day), Mood Swings was set on December 24, and the last few pages of Krampusnacht were on December 25.

    Oh, thanks! Missed that "seventy-two hours later" line.
    Though I find Liz surprise reaction to Hellboy story strange, when she had an encounter with bloodthirsty snowmen less than day ago.

    Is this the first time that Adam Hughes illustrated a Hellboy story?

    (The GCD shows he had a Hellboy illustration published in Dark Horse Twenty Years back in 2006.)

    He's drawn Hellboy, for a pin up, I think? But he's never done a sequential piece.

    This was fantastic. There's nothing better than Mignola writing Hellboy. And the twist with Krampus's identity was a great idea.

    I noticed that the souls escaping from Krampus's house looked like birds. Have we seen this before? I know it was used in Baltimore but I don't recall it in the Hellboy universe.

    The standout part was the 1832 sequence. Tragic and horrifying.

    The birds for souls was used in Hellboy: The Island and throughout Hellboy in Hell.

    Thanks. I've gotta reread Hellboy, I've forgotten too many details.
