I’ll be honest, I bought this strictly for the cover.
Still, I’m a Hellboy fan so I at least knew that I’d most likely enjoy the whole comic.
For the most part, this was a good read. It doesn’t seem to mean much in the grander scheme of things but it entertained me for a bit and it even threw in a bit of lucha libre to sweeten the pot.
The art was good throughout and the story was energetic and fun.
But man, I just couldn’t take my eye off of the cover and I’d buy a poster print of it in a heartbeat.
And that’s it. This is a one-shot. There’s not much to say without ruining the story. Ultimately, it doesn’t seem important and maybe this should have felt like it had more of a reason to exist but whatever.
So I’ll keep this one short and sweet because the comic was short and sweet.
Pairs well with: other Hellboy comics.
