Hellboy Omnibus Volume 1: Seed of Destruction Hellboy Omnibus Volume 2: Strange Places Hellboy Omnibus Volume 3: The Wild Hunt Hellboy Omnibus Volume 4: Hellboy in Hell Hellboy: The Complete Short Stories Volume 1 Hellboy: The Complete Short Stories Volume 2
Synopsis The story jumps from Hellboy's mysterious World War II origin to his 1994 confrontation with the man who summoned him to earth, and the earliest signs of the plague of frogs. Hellboy loses faith in the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense when they strap a bomb to one of his fellow not-quite-human agents. He gets answers about his destiny, like it or not. The human race hangs in the balance, as well as King Arthur's sword Excalibur, in a story that wipes England off the map and sets in motion the end of the world. Hellboy must strike a deal with Baba Yaga and confront his own destiny. Hellboy is cast into Hell, where familiar faces reveal secrets of his origins, and previously unknown family members come forward. Hellboy forever alters the face of Hell, giving new significance to his role of Beast of the Apocalypse. The ultimate introduction to this supernatural hero features 16 standalone stories with Mignola's greatest collaborators--stories that can be read in any order. Hellboy travels the world to find his first brushes with the royalty of Hell and the otherworldly Ogdru Hem, while shooting out the Baba Yaga's eye and getting a glimpse of his possible fate in the epic African adventure "Makoma."
What it Collects This 368-page volume covers Hellboy's adventures from 1994 to 1997, reprinting Seed of Destruction, Wake the Devil, and "Wolves of St August," "The Chained Coffin," and "Almost Colossus," from The Chained Coffin and The Right Hand of Doom. This 416 page volume covers Hellboy's adventures from 1998 to 2005, reprinting Conqueror Worm, Strange Places, Into the Silent Sea, and "The Right Hand of Doom, "Box Full of Evil," and "Being Human" from The Right Hand of Doom and B.P.R.D Being Human Mike Mignola and Duncan Fegredo's complete trilogy is collected for the first time in this 512-page volume, reprinting Darkness Calls, The Wild Hunt, and The Storm and the Fury, and the short story "The Mole." The Hellboy saga concludes, with the most ambitious chapter, Hellboy in Hell, collected in its entirety--all written and drawn by Mike Mignola. Tales from 1947-1961, including childhood adventure, The Midnight Circus, drawn by Duncan Fegredo, The Crooked Man, Double Feature of Evil, Hellboy in Mexico, which features Richard Corben, Gabriel Ba, and Fabio Moon, and early masterpiece The Corpse This 368-page volume covers Hellboy's adventures from 1961 to 1993, leading up to Seed of Destruction. It includes stories from several Hellboy collections including "Heads," "Buster Oakley Gets His Wish," and "A Christmas Underground”
The Hellboy saga begins—with over 300 pages drawn by Mignola! For the first time, Hellboy's complete story is presented in chronological order for the ultimate reading experience. Featuring award-winning guests Gary Gianni and Richard Corben. Includes the inspiration for the new Hellboy film from director Neil Marshall and starring Strangers Things's David Harbour! Hellboy in Hell also offers a return to the simplest and best Hellboy stories, as Hellboy roams a unique world only Mignola could present, filled with strange and magical encounters rich with the power of folklore and myth. Before Seed of Destruction, Hellboy spent fifty years fighting monsters as a somewhat carefree member of the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense. The Complete Short Stories Volumes 1 & 2 present those early adventures. With over 100 pages drawn by Mignola, Volume 2 features an incredible roster of artists! The two Short Stories volumes along with the four-volume Omnibus series collect all of Mignola's award-winning Hellboy stories in chronological order!

Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Mike Mignola's fascination with ghosts and monsters began at an early age; reading Dracula at age twelve introduced him to Victorian literature and folklore, from which he has never recovered. Starting in 1982 as a bad inker for Marvel Comics, he swiftly evolved into a not-so-bad artist. By the late 1980s, he had begun to develop his own unique graphic style, with mainstream projects like Cosmic Odyssey and Batman: Gotham by Gaslight. In 1994, he published the first Hellboy series through Dark Horse, and several spin-off titles (B.P.R.D., Lobster Johnson, Abe Sapien, and Sir Edward Grey: Witchfinder), prose books, animated films, and two live-action films starring Ron Perlman. Along the way he worked on Francis Ford Coppola's film Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992), was a production designer for Disney's Atlantis: The Lost Empire (2001), and was the visual consultant to director Guillermo del Toro on Blade II (2002), Hellboy (2004), and Hellboy II: The Golden Army (2008), and the upcoming Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen . Mike's books have earned numerous awards and are published in a great many countries. Mike lives in Southern California with his wife, daughter, and cat.

Mike Mignola is best known as the multiple award-winning creator, writer, and artist of "B.P.R.D." and "Hellboy", but has fostered several other projects like "The Amazing Screw-On Head" and "Baltimore" with Christopher Golden. Although he began working as a professional cartoonist in the early 1980s, drawing 'a little bit of everything for just about everybody' - including characters like Batman and Wolverine - he was also a production designer on the Disney film "Atlantis: The Lost Empire". Mignola also acted as a visual consultant to Guillermo del Toro on "Blade 2" and the film versions of Hellboy, which were broadly adapted by del Toro from the original comic series. Mike Mignola currently lives in southern California with his wife, daughter, and cat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mignola's Magnum Opus Drops All Pretenses
By ricardo is reading on October 28, 2018
The other day I decided to read my way through HELLBOY, with the help of the massive omnibus collections. These tomes collect only the core storylines—the tales pertaining to Hellboy himself and his fate. They, of course, omit the dozens of short stories that Mignola and company churned out through the years, between the volumes of the principal storyline (they are collected elsewhere, and I will get around to them). And while part of me admittedly feels like it's missing out on the evolution of an artist (a process I enjoy seeing with singular, serialized work), I do so enjoy the kick I get from watching the sudden (from my perspective, at least) shift in authorial voice.

These stories must have done Mignola worlds of good, in the sense that he clearly must have gotten progressively better with each tale, because that effort shows in the stories collected in this publication. Mignola the Writer comes through much stronger, much clearer, and much, much brighter than in the previous omnibus collection, and the book as a whole benefits greatly from it.

Here we have a confident writer, entirely and utterly sure of the story they are trying to tell. Ready and willing to follow it wherever it leads.

It's funny, then, that I was a little bit hesitant at reaching the stories that were plotted by Mignola but drawn by other artists. Mignola's art is so distinctive, after all, and part of what made the Hellboy comics so appealing. The very first issues of the Hellboy saga featured Mignola as a confident graphic artist, but, at best, a competent but hesitant writer. They writing was always fine and serviceable to the story being told, but it never really went above and beyond that. The writing was never *great*.

So I was incredibly happy to find out that this wasn't the case here at all. The stories in this collection feature some of the best writing I've ever seen in comics. STRANGE PLACES follows Hellboy, recently having left his position at the BPRD, drifting and wandering about, "wherever the wind blows," as he repeatedly says. The places he visits are indeed strange, and the events that happen in and around them even more so. But Hellboy is the ultimate pragmatic protagonist, taking everything at face value, and dealing with things as they come along. It's a great quality to have in a main character in stories full of weirdness, and indeed, most of the humor (and there's a fair bit of it) comes from the juxtaposition between the outrageous events forever happening around Hellboy and his perpetual and perpetually weary "ugh this again" attitude.

What I really love most about HB's portrayal, though, is that while it seems to be stoic in nature, it is everything but. Hellboy has always been an emotional creature, from the get go, and in these stories more than ever. This is especially evident in the last few pages of "Box Full of Evil", where Hellboy goes existential. It's a small monologue, to be sure, but it is full of pathos and poignancy.

Which brings me to the writing. This is a baroque story Mignola is trying to tell here, through and through. And, with the artwork of these comics being minimalist in nature, this aspect is best reflected in the writing. It is lush and lyrical and purposefully poetic—full of clever allusions and foreshadowing. This is a work of sequential art, yes, but there's also sense of revelry in the written word, which is always a refreshing thing to see in comics. I was reminded often of THE SANDMAN, in the sense that this was a comic that was deliberately attempting to tell a literary story. And in point of fact I would put the writing in some of these stories ("Box Full of Evil" and "The Island" in particular) on par with some of Gaiman's own work at the height of his comic-writing capabilities.

The artwork, as always, is gorgeous—at least whenever Mignola is at the helm. I mentioned earlier my initial misgivings about other illustrators handling the artwork, and, at one point in the collection, I was almost proven right. "Being Human" is a short and, on the surface at least, relatively harmless tale centered around Roger, the contemplative homunculus, that is almost completely ruined by featuring depictions of people of color that border on racist caricatures. It never really veers into wildly offensive territory (to my eyes at least; your mileage, of course, may vary), but it did make me feel uneasy while reading it, and although I quite liked the ending, it is my least favorite story here.

Thankfully, though, it seems to be a solitary case, as the other stories drawn up by other artists are remarkably well-done, with artwork that is nothing if not tasteful.

All in all this is a remarkably strong collection, telling a meticulous story that feels thoroughly and suitably epic, and one which, ever true to its lofty baroquian ambitions, aims to go even further and higher.

Or, rather, deeper.
