Before Mike Mignola went Hollywood along with his most famous creation, Hellboy owned an unbreakable grip on the top spot on my "buy pile." Despite the efforts of some very sincere and talented artists, I was never able to sustain any enthusiasm for Hellboy comics not drawn by Mignola. So as you can imagine, these elegant pages from the new Hellboy In Hell #1 and 2 got me very, very excited...
Here's the Sales pitch:

After saving the world in The Storm and The Fury, but sacrificing himself and Great Britain, Hellboy is dead, cast into Hell, where he finds many familiar faces, and a throne that awaits him.
Mike Mignola returns to draw Hellboy's ongoing story for the first time since Conqueror Worm. It's a story only Mignola could tell, as more of Hellboy's secrets are at last revealed, in the most bizarre depiction of Hell you've ever seen.

Okay, I'm fired up. But maybe it's just me. Hellboy In Hell #1 hits stores December 5th. That'll give me time to breathe in a paper bag or something...

I hear you! Even if I find Mignola to be slightly stiff sometimes, his work has such power that only he can really draw Hellboy. His art codified the character. (I feel the same way about The Middleman and Les McClaine)

Though, if Art Adams or Alan Davis did stories...

Books like Hellboy keep me interested in comics. Mignola's Hellboy is in my BRAIN! I make the character what I want him to be... even my favorite artists are hard pressed to compete with my imagination.

I thought Duncan Fegredo did a great job capturing the same mood. I really enjoyed Corbin on the book, too. But they felt like they were pretending to draw Hellboy.

Mignola draws Hellboy. That's it.
