    This is the first Hellboy comic that I've read Previously, my only direct experience of the character was the two movies produced by Guillermo del Toro and starring Ron Pearlman, which I enjoyed quite a bit I finally decided to read the Hellboy comic books when I saw this series on It seemed like I good way to introduce myself to the real Hellboy.I'm very glad that I did! Mike Mignola's character and his artwork are splendid The stories are like a combination of film noire and gothic horror/romance fused with the pulp stories of Lovecraft and Howard and Poe's sense of the macabre I found the stories carried me along with the breathtaking speed of a rollercoaster.His artwork is justly famous The way he uses light, darkness is very striking It gives his larger panels tremendous dramatic impact His shadowing often produces a deep and brooding atmosphere It doesn't become oppressive though He balances the darkness with a wry sense of humor Hellboy's running internal commentary makes for a lot of that That commentary also turns a character who is a demon from another dimension into a surprisingly warm and sympathic human being It's very easy to identify with Hellboy He is a remarkably loveable kind of superhero.Having read some of the real Hellboy, I find myself liking the Hellboy movies even Ron Pearlman and Guillermo del Toro have captured the spirit of Mignola's characters and stories wonderfully Pearlman's highly sympathetic portrayal of Hellboy's emotional vulnerability is heartwarming and true to Mignola's vision of the character.

    90's was, in comic books, a time of excess Heroes and villains would have a bazillion of poaches, shinning clothes (or body paint?), tons of muscles with little to no training, it was mostly an age of artists looking to amaze you, although the plots would fall a bit into a formula Hellboy is notoriously from that spirit of the nineties, but it has it in the right amount to be a great story and not an excess The colors are modern but don't indulge in gradations, they get along very well with Mognola's art, Mignola born to do these art with ninetieth century vibe, the ink is dense in the shadows as it is in a world without electrical light Hellboy is the hero, he is powerful but he is far from perfect (although in 90's fashion he is super cool), his colleagues help him to survive rather than just being sidekicks; in this comic being bad or good is clear but is not simple.Seed of destruction starts with a mystery: Hellboy being brought to Earth from Hell, and ends with questions and giant evil gods closer to us than we would like I like much to read and stare the frames If you have not read it before you should give it a reading.

    If you've only seen the movies, don't expect this book to be the action filled joy ride you are used to This hellboy is very dark, brooding and contemplative and the monsters he faces are much intelligent and cunning If you are even bothering looking at this page, you'll enjoy this book though, don't be disappointed by the differences between the movies and this, embrace them and indulge in hellboys adventures You will not be disappointed.

    This includes the story on which the first Hellboy movie is based on along with two short stories and a gallery of arr.To me Hellboy is a superhero with a strong influence I love the way the creator of this series draws his characters He definitely up there with Jack Kirby,Bernie Wrightson snd Mike Ploog.
