    I wonder at what point they decided to join the two, if they knew from the beginning, or if it just came up somewhere along the way.

    Anyway, loved issue #2, especially seeing Cocteau.

    Loved that these two officially take place in the same universe, that was always my head-canon.

    Same. Ever since I read the novel, I'd hoped they existed in the same universe, but I didn't think it would actually happen. I'll be very interested to see where they go with this...

    After the way Baltimore ended, I'm not really expecting much more to come from the connection other than implying that the flood was perhaps tied to what happened in Europe. I still feel like the ending was a bit of a let down as it tied things up too fast, and too simply so there aren't a whole lot of interesting connections that can be made now. Still it is neat.

    Interesting.
    I think that for me personally I particularly feel to appreciate how 'late in the game' this "universe-sharing" is or can be established.

    Mostly because I really feel to like to wonder about such things. I like any not knowing as much as any knowing, I guess, at least as far as I know .
    In general, for Hellboy, or each of the Hell-verse titles, as becoming a shared universe of sorts.
    But also for instance how Hellboy In Hell on its own presented room for possible "universe-cut-off" wonderment in a sense.

    And I didn't quite mind being to wonder over any of the other (non-Hell-verse) Mignola-verse or Mignola/Golden-verse stuff, like Baltimore, Joe Golem or Father Gaetano's Puppet Catechism. I couldn't say I'd be liking shared universes better than non-shared or undecided ones, at any rate.

    Issue #3 was more of a midstory pause than an ending.
    Enjoyable none the less.
    I think they will need to adapt the novel or the comic readers will not get the resolution they deserve.
    There came a time when the name edhopper died! The final moment came with the fatal release of indescribable power--which tore every post that bore the name edhopper asunder--split it linto a new identity, and filled CBR with the blinding death flash of it's destruction! In the end there was a new user name, spinning slow and barren, clean of all that had gone before, adrift in the fading sounds of binary thunder...THEN----THERE WAS KIRBY101

    You mean words without pictures? That's insane.

    Patrick Reynolds seems to be leaving the book. What a shame.

    Is this part of the joke or is he actually potentially leaving? Just curious

    It's not a joke, Patric posted the news himself today.

    Well that is disappointing. I think they said a two issue arc is coming after outer dark. I guess it's safe to say he'll be gone after that.

    That is too bad. Hope his replacement is up to his standards.
