Do you need to hear any more than “From the world of Hellboy”?

This story starts with the death of Frankenstein and his creations need for something be it redemption, punishment or death he doesn’t know but will search it out and accept his fate with open arms. He travels to the ends of the world and I think begins to find a little peace perhaps or at the very least acceptance of his sins but as is possibly a cruel twist of fate it doesn’t go smoothly.

I really like this story, the look is typically Hellboy which is just awesome and lends itself perfectly to the world in which this “monster” finds himself living in. You really feel for him as he resigns himself to death only to be denied the release and then put through further torture and pain. It’s not a straight forward redemption tale of course as there is the added quandary of him not actually being alive per se and the question of if there is the presence of a soul to be redeemed?

This is looking to be the start of a very interesting tale and I cant wait to see where it leads.

A 34 year old manchild from Scotland, bravely fighting the on going war between a love of comics and space to keep them. Boxes are filling and thanks to the digital age we live in so is the harddrive! I love finding a new comic to obsess over and rediscovering old comics to immerse myself in from the very first issue. A healthy mix of the seven dwarves of geekdom all wrapped up in one kilted bundle of amusement
