    Default Koshchei the Deathless

    Well, I thought this was pretty great!

    Not a lot of it is new information. And that could have gone very wrong, or been poorly done. (Say, The Visitor #1, maybe?) But that didn't happen. I thought Mignola pulled it off perfectly. This was Roshoman, not a remake, you know?

    I'm also a big sucker for Slavic folklore. It's just so strange. I'm really looking forward to more of Mignola using that as a foundation!

    Yeah, I was a little worried about this after my distaste for the Visitor but this was fun. A lot of it was a rehash, but it looks like it's going to be a lot of fun going forward.

    My favorite part though was Hellboy and Koshchei just chilling in a bar in Hell.

    I also loved this first issue. After I went back and re-read how Koshchei became deathless to note the subtle differences.

    Really liked the first issue. Good weirdness and violence. Also, Mignola and Stenbeck have done wonders before with Withcfinder and Frankenstein. No doubt in my mind that this one will deliver as well

    I wasn't worried. This is written by Mignola alone.

    A lot of my favorite Mignola stories aren't focused around Hellboy. That may be blasphemous, but I really enjoyed the Baltimore novel, as well as many of the miniseries, the first Witchfinder trade, Frankenstein Underground, and I think this as well as Rasputin will rank highly up there.
