Are the comics good? I never read them

I like them quite a bit. I recommend starting with one of the anthology books, as opposed to the mini-series. The anthology collections are so easy to breeze through, a lot of one-shot and strips that appeared in Wizard, and such. Mignola also gives intros to each stories giving a background of what inspired it and real-world mythos he drew from to craft the tale. I personally started here: http://hellboy.wikia.com/wiki/TPB?file=HB_Trade03.jpg#Vol._3_The_Chained_Coffin_and_Others

Some of the comics also contain short stories of a series called Monster Men by Gary Gianni.  It's even more Lovecraftian than Hellboy.  We're talking squid-faced monsters and weird shit in Antarctica in a Victorian setting kinda stuff.  They've probably collected all the stories at some point.

Another vote for the comics and the whole Hellboy-verse.


I think you'll especially be able to scratch that Lovecraftian cosmic horror itch w/ BPRD. Hellboy eventually leaves the organization and the series follows everyone who's left and as it goes on shit gets more and more out of hand. It's an incredibly well done book, easily one of the best ongoing series of the recent comics era.

She shouldn't be, but I'm fine if she is.

Co-sign on the greatness of the HB books. I absolutely love them. I love the research into the paranormal that Mignola does. They really feel meticulously crafted. And HB is a fantastically fun character. Behind only Savage Dragon--and even then just BARELY so--Hellboy is my second favorite non-Big Two comic ever.

I hope Harbour can approximate the Blue-Collar Hellboy Charm.
