Great stuff, gonna take me awhile to sort through it all
took me awhile, but read all the articles, great job dude!!!
I enjoyed writing this one, although not as much as I'm enjoying the next one.
Sure. One will be coming out in December to coincide with the Dark Horse Presents story, the other will tie into The Midnight Circus. To say any more than that could veer into spoiler territory.
When I think of Hellboy as a creator-owned comics title, meant to be filled with what stuff that creator gets inspired over,
(plus as meant to contain as much other creative input as possible, again as what stuff the aforementioned creator could get inspired over),
story matter such as folklore or horror both as Nazis will be having things in common.
Folklore will be 'lore for folks' rather typically. Whereas horror or ghostly dark or demonic stuff will be too. Where both beauty or grimness can be what they'd be.
And Nazis were historically very focused or concerned onto putting the fear into people. As how very tribal or cultladen warmongering is focused onto playing into the minds of people.
Pulp fiction or folktales both as enticing reading - be it serious or whacky - is about such too. Being stoy matter, quite graphically both as imaginatively.
Ancient Greek or Etrusk or Sumerian scriptures, texts and plays were traditionally meant to be answering exactly to what sort of material they'd need to get interpreted as.
Like as long as Homer's Ilyad / Song of Ilion or The Odyssey would be containing cyclopses and dramatized heroic steepness, readers would be to know those to being epic poems (in dactylic hexameter). As otherwise there would have been turmoil!
As of his introduction, Hellboy has been associating with many such whackiness as funky Nazis, quaint machinations, armed monkeys, Oriental flying heads, nordic pointing corpses, fairy Kings and eye-bulging demon lords, I would feel. And animated puppets. Or flowers. Devils being almost playful, or circuses proving scary.

Chillingly good stuff besides Mignola, Slint, M, Knut and really big chunks of tinfoil?Been called a 'good egg'. Been told to rock, been told to steady myself. Been told to (please) be goin' places.
