    the visual representation is pretty spot on with Dickens' description from the book, too.

    New favorite Christmas comic?

    My guess is issue 2 will be Hellboy's past, issue 3 will be Hellboy's present, then the forth will have a glimpse of his future before wrapping up this little arc.

    That would be my guess, though I figure the five rivers of Hades will also figure into the structure of the story as well. I don't think he threw in the reference to the river Lethe for no reason so I figure it and it's sister rivers will likely have some importance.

    I was lucky enough to find the year of monsters cover in my local comic shop and I have to say, I loved this. Love that Mike is back to full form. Love how dark it was and loved the Christmas Carols involvement.
    Great issue.
    I'm very sorry to be so late, Katherine.
    The weather is terrible.

    Mike Mignola (W/A/Cover) and Dave Stewart (C)

    On sale Mar 6
    FC, 32 pages

    After a bizarre family reunion, Hellboy can barely process the new information, and the things he's done, since arriving in Hell. But Mike Mignola has one more revelation before concluding this initial monthly run of the story we've been building to since 1994 . . .
    Mike Mignola writes and draws Hellboy!
    Death was only the beginning!
    The bizarre origin of one of Mignola's most enigmatic characters.

    I hadn't thought of that... but I like it.

    I have a slight advantage in that I've already seen the inks for issue 2. It's amazing.

    That cover takes me back to The Third Wish. Still my favorite HB tale to date.

    I was thinking the same, Junior- good eye. And The Third Wish is held in high esteem by me, so for me to compare any art from HIH to that story is high praise indeed.

    If you're curious about the trade, Mike Mignola had this to say...

    "I don't know when the collection is going to be published. The first 4 issues come out monthly but not sure when I'll be sitting down to do #5--The collection will be the first 5 issues and #5 is a one-issue story. I'm excited to the do the 5th issue but I have a bunch of things (some I've been putting off for a long time) to get out of the way first."

    If Hellboy in Hell ends up being an eighties-style buddy action-adventure with Edward Grey, I'd be totally fine with that.

    As it is, I found the first issue to be meandering and self-indulgent, but in a good way... I kinda love it when Mike Mignola indulges himself and makes weird little things ("The Hydra and the Lion" springs to mind, or Screw-On Head). That's what comics is all about.

    Really nice design work by Cary Grazzini, too. The book doesn't look like anything else on the stands, and it doesn't look like just another Hellboy story, either.
