Without going too deep into the plot, we have dragons, shapeshifters, warrior monks, zombie dragons, and plenty of action. This one is really almost the perfect Hellboy story, with my only complaint being it needed a little more Liz Sherman.

There are two enjoyable aspects regarding the above. First, he doesn't seem to need to introduce the origin of Hellboy to the reader which neophyte Hellboy writers do and he himself has done on previous texts. Second, he allows himself to develop deeply the psyche of his characters. For example, in "The dragon pool" he adds a romantic life to the main character - something that seems to be missing from its graphic counterpart - and how the ripples of such affect not only Red and his old flame Anastacia but the people surrounding them from his adoptive father Trevor and his pal Abe Sapien to the world that doesn't understand this interspecies liaison.

Not to be missed! Jun 28, Jesse rated it liked it Recommends it for: Fans of Hellboy and Christopher Golden. Recommended to Jesse by: I enjoyed this book overall. I thought it was an interesting depth of Hellboy I hadn't seen before, being the first non-graphic novel of him I've read. Hellboy comes off with a bit more dimension to him than I've usually scene in the comics or the movie, mainly because we are exposed to a relationship he's had. Perhaps this is something you see in other Hellboy graphic novels I haven't read I've only read of the collections , but it was still and interesting first for me.
The flashbacks of I enjoyed this book overall. The flashbacks of how that particular relationship came about and then came to and end, were the high points of the book for me.

Though the climactic battle with a monster at the end was also fun. I've only read one other thing by Christopher Golden, and that was a collaborative effort between him and Mike Mignola. So I can't honestly say I personally have read him walking alone on his own two literary feet.
I am told by sources I trust that he is a very good writer, and his work with Mignola would seem to indicate that to me. I'm hoping that this books slowness was just lack of interest on my part. I will warn that there is a slow section right in the middle of the book, where nothing seems to happen and we seem to learn things about Hellboy and his world that were already established thus making the section seem a bit dull and redundant.
Hellboy is great in this book, and it adds a welcome new depth to the character and his world Abe Sapien has some cool time as the "point of view" character in this and insight into his character is cool as well.
The writing could stand to be a bit tighter in my opinion, and loses some momentum in the middle. If you push on through though, you will be rewarded with a cool Hellboy Vs. If you love Hellboy, in the end you will enjoy reading this. If you don't love Hellboy, then maybe you should get out of my face cause why don't you love Hellboy you snooty bastard!!!
Jan 20, Willow Redd rated it it was amazing. I really enjoyed this one. It's the second of Christopher Golden's Hellboy stories I've read the other one being Bones of Giants and I really like the grasp he has on the world. One thing I like about this one is getting to see more of Hellboy's relationship with Anastasia Bransfield.
