      I'm a big fan of Mignola's work, and Hellboy in particular. As such, I've been looking forward to this new series for a while. That said, this first book in the continuation of the series didn't really flip my switch. If I had to point at one reason why, I'd probably have to say that I felt like Hellboy was too passive. Things happened around him and to him, but he himself didn't seem to be doing much. well protaging. If he's the protagonist, he should protag. There was one section that was a ni [...]

      Hellboy in Hell is the proof that Mike Mignola’s imagination is inexhaustible! After 20 years he still manages to amaze us!

    • Artemy says:

      Ah, Hellboy in Hell It's my third time reading this particular volume, and I still can't decide if I like it or not. On the one hand, it's pretty faithful to the story that came before, and it has a very unique atmosphere of quiet sadness and emptiness that is fitting for, well, Hellboy being in hell. It's also a joy to see Mike Mignola drawing a Hellboy comic again. On the other hand, It's not a particularly gripping read, because most of this volume is just Hellboy confronting various characte [...]

    • Anne says:

      3.5 starsI've read very little about Hellboy in the past (maybe 1 or 2 volumes?), so I'm not exactly an expert on Mignola's creation. In fact, the majority of what I think I know about Hellboy comes from the movies. So you can basically take my review with a grain of salt.The hardest thing for me to overcome was the artwork.BUT.Ever since I read Hawkeye: My Life as a Weapon, I've been trying to become more tolerant when it comes to graphic novels that don't have what I consider to be traditional [...]

    • Sam Quixote says:

      The short version of why Hellboy’s in hell is that at the end of the last Hellboy book, The Storm and The Fury, he slew the dragon and saved England but died when he was caught off guard and the ghost of the witch Nimue plucked out his heart. This is what happened next…Hellboy in Hell isn’t just the title of the book but a pretty accurate summary of what happens in the book. There isn’t a plot, it’s just Hellboy wandering around hell looking at stuff with a variety of different Virgils [...]

    • Sesana says:

      I loved this book as I was reading it. In some ways, it reminds me of the best of Hellboy. The dreamlike narrative, the eerie and half-glimpsed settings, the use of supernatural elements and way Mignola weaves in folklore and literature, all things that I'm always happy to see in Hellboy. And the art is as good as I've ever seen Mignola's. His style doesn't work for everything, but it's perfect for something like Hellboy. But after the fact, I realized that I didn't really remember much of what [...]

    • Eric says:

      Hellboy is actually in hell for this story, which had Hellboy creator Mike Mignola return to write and illustrate, and it serves as an odd sort of origin/family tale for our anti-hero. But the focus of this comic was more on mood than plot. It had an ever-present muted macabre feeling to it, aided by the stunningly beautifully minimalist art and equally beautiful coloring work, a lot of classic literary illusions -- from Shakespeare to Milton to Dickens, and only an ethereal whisper-thin thread [...]

    • Μιχάλης says:

      Δε διαβάζεις Hellboy για την ιστορία και ευτυχώς, γιατί έχω χάσει κάτι τόμους (6 για να είμαστε ακριβείς) στο ενδιάμεσο και δεν είχα ιδέα τί γινόταν σε μεγάλο μέρος του GN.ΟΜΩΣ έχεις τον Mignola στο σχέδιο, οπότε δε μπορείς να μην εντυπωσιαστείς από τα layouts και τα χρώματα και την αστεί [...]

    • Courtney says:

      Liked it, but before this I'd mostly run across the short story collections where continuity wasn't that important. I think I need to go back to the first Hellboy series, then come back to this and I might like it more. I'm not a huge fan of the art style, but it's decent.

    • Wing Kee says:

      A wonderful weird ride of a book that hearkens back to Mignola tales of old both narratively and visually.Wow I've not read something like this from Mignola for a while, sure there's been Hellboy stories but it's been a long time since we've had Mignola illustrated stories that read and felt like this.World: There is nothing much more I can say about Mignola's art, the colors the framing the lines are stunning and all his own, and man does this book look like his stuff. It's amazing. The world b [...]

    • Nicholas Kaufmann says:

      This latest collection in Mignola's ongoing HELLBOY saga is essentially a tour of Hell by way of Dickens' A CHRISTMAS CAROL. There's not a lot of drama to be witnessed, it's more spectacle than story in these five issues, but Hellboy is such a great character and Mignola's concept of Hell as a place is so compelling that I kept turning the pages with mounting interest. The art is some of Mignola's most evocative, especially in Hell's capitol city of Pandemonium, and each panel succeeds in offeri [...]

      HELLBOY RETROSPECTIVE 2016In volume 12 Hellboy triumphed at the cost of his own life. Now he is dead and in Hell, navigating it with the help of what's left of Sir Edward Gray and encountering old enemies and his extended family. Unsurprisingly, he does not appear to be enjoying himself. Dark and fascinating as this is, I really didn't understand why Mike Mignola killed his wonderful creation just wander Hell, or at least I didn't until I read Hellboy in Hell Volume 2

    • Orrin Grey says:

      Of course, I'd already read all five issues on Dark Horse Digital, but actually holding the first Hellboy trade written and drawn entirely by Mike Mignola (with phenomenal coloring by Dave Stewart, as always) in almost a decade was a whole other feeling. Mignola is my favorite creator, and this is him working at the top of his game, both artistically and as a storyteller. It really doesn't get any better than this!

    • John says:

      Hellboy goes to Hell, and nothing much happens! Mignola throws in lots of allusions to Milton, Shakespeare & Dickens as Hellboy just wanders around for five ponderous issues. Some nice nods to his past such as how he got his giant hand, but there just weren't any moments that grabbed me. As always, Mignola's art is amazing, but I found the story, or what little there is of one, quite uninteresting.

    • Sonic says:

      Mignola writing, Yes!Mignola also ART, Sqweeeeeeeeee! That is the sound of sheer (geek) delight!Or is it the sound of bat-winged demons descending on our tasty souls?I read this awhile ago, guess I did not review it, but when I got vol 2, I gave this one a re-read, still love it!.

    • Brandon St Mark says:

      Actual rating: 3.75I'm a little let down by this tbqh. Something just felt off, but maybe that's the point? I hope Vol 2 comes out soon

    • Spencer says:

      Mignola helms both writing and art duties for the first time in forever and does a perfect job. The story isn't a dramatic or energetic one, it's more quiet and thoughtful, and personally it hit all the marks for me. Amazing!

    • Jesse says:

      I've read this a bit out of order, and this is the first time I felt like I didn't really know what was going on own fault.However, in typical Mignola style, the story was epic and the art was awesome. 5 stars.

    • Tom Ewing says:

      Hellboy has always been a comic concerned with rejection and reduction. Introduced as a man fated to do terrible things, Hellboy has shed his inevitable future piece by piece, pushing aside everything the plot wants him to do, unless he has no choice. (And often he finds a choice anyway.) At the same time, Mignola's art has become more and more pared down, his lines and marks weightier, his use of colour more stark. Now Hellboy is dead, ragged and diminished, and wanders around a gloomy, silent [...]

    • Wayne McCoy says:

      In 'Hellboy in Hell, Vol 1: The Descent' we follow Hellboy's journey after he sacrificed himself and died. It's all Mike Mignola and it's all just great.After the events in recent Hellboy books, Hellboy kills a dragon, then has his heart plucked out by Nimue (of Arthurian legend). He finds himself in hell searching for answers. Along the way, more secrets are revealed, characters he's met before show up and in his own wry way, Hellboy manages to almost find more trouble than he can handle. He he [...]

    • TaB says:

      En realidad fue una relectura, luego de un año y monedas de haberlo leído por primera vez. Hellboy siempre me ha gustado, y aunque HiH no mantiene en cuanto a historia el nivel que venía arrastrando la serie hasta The Storm and The Fury, es una historia imperdible para todo seguidor del personaje.Con mucha vuelta Shakespeariana (y Dantesca, por supuesto), Hellboy llega al Infierno y trastoca todo el panorama de sus habitantes. Veremos como algunos quieren matarlo, otros le huyen, otros le ayu [...]

    • Kristen says:

      If you and I have talked at all about comics or superheroes lately, you're already aware that Hellboy is far and away my favorite superhero and has been for awhile. His looks immediately give him away as a demon, a thing supposedly working for the side of chaos and evil, and yet he has forged a difficult path, against all odds, to be more than a prophecy, and to be more that what two opposing forces (Light and Dark, Good and Evil) have already chosen for him to be. When we last saw him, he had g [...]

    • Fantasy Literature says:

      I'm a huge fan of Hellboy. I love all the books and both movies. I think the character is funny and endearing and perfect in every way. I really like Mike Mignola's art, too. So it was with great pleasure that I read Hellboy in Hell: The Descent, which is the first Hellboy book in many years both written and drawn by Mike Mignola. Though he's continued to write many if not most of the Hellboy tales, he has not written all of them, and a good number of them are drawn by artists imitating his styl [...]

    • Daniel says:

      This is truly an origin story. You get not how he came to be on Earth, which has been told before, but how he came to be in the first place.Having died in the previous installment, Hellboy returns home to find all the princes of hell and their armies have fled rather than face him. The center city is deserted except for one old enemy and Hellboy's half-brothers egged on by his uncle who all have designs on the key he carries. That all ends pretty abruptly and he kind of just wanders around final [...]

    • Althea Ann says:

      This volume is a pretty good place to jump into 'Hellboy,' seeing as it begins right after his death.I haven't really read any of these in years and years, but this really reminded me why I liked them so much. The story is moody and interesting, with plenty of references to history, mythology and literature (a la 'Sandman'). The graphics are just beautiful - a wonderful sense of composition and the dark color scheme is rich and gorgeous.Hellboy's matter-of-fact, bad-ass attitude when faced with [...]

    • Melissa McShane says:

      This marks the beginning of a new Hellboy saga, and it's impressive. The war on Earth that ended the last story has repercussions in Hell, and Hellboy's journey is marked by interesting allusions to other stories, primarily the three ghosts of Dickens' A Christmas Carol. There's also more about Hellboy's birth and the events that led to him possessing the big stone hand that I found fascinating. I'm pleased to see Mignola returning as artist on this one, though I loved Duncan Fegredo's art. In a [...]

      це мало колись статися: хеллбой потрапив у пекло.поки що він тільки ходить там, роздивляється та проникається атмосферою, яка таки атмосферна – мішанина з данте, мільтона й діккенса. на підходах до пекла течуть ахерон з коцитом, передмістя підозріло нагадують ілюстрації д [...]

      Hellboy rejoint enfin les Enfers. Retour du fils prodigue, pèlerinage en terrain hostile ou damnation éternelle ?Mike Mignola nous peint un royaume en proie à de profonds bouleversements et un Hellboy toujours aussi rugueux, pragmatique, et sceptique. Les planches sont magnifiques, les dialogues sont concis et ciselés, et le tout dégage une poésie sombre, si caractéristique de l'auteur.Sans oublier les couleurs de Dave Stewart, qui sont juste parfaites.

    • Mel says:

      The start to the new Hellboy series was a little slow. It started with him hitting things, in hell, as opposed to Earth, which really wasn't that interesting. But as the issues progressed things got more interesting with several ghosts, a man trying to escape his doom, and some not so nice family members from hellboy's past. The best and most interesting thing that got played out was the possible (or probable) murder of Lucifer. I'm definitely interested to see where this series is headed.
