Hell’s Bells


Hellboy: Darkness Calls #5

I can keep this one short and sweet. Hellboy is still trapped in the world of Russian myth, battling Baba Yaga and Koshchei the Deathless. The witches, ghosts, and monsters of the world are preparing to go to war. It looks like Hellboy has Koshchei on the ropes until Baba Yaga locates Koshchei’s soul (it’s located inside a goat, among other things) and gives him even more power.

Verdict: Thumbs up. There is no mythology freakier than Russian folklore, and Mignola uses it in ways you never thought possible. Very cool, very bizarre, very exciting. At this point, I have no idea what’s going to happen next, and I can’t wait for the next issue.
