For challenge C: I chose Hellboy in Hell by Mike Mignola. A definite must read I highly recommend. Hellboy in Hell, the latest Hellboy omnibus is unfortunately not something you can just pick up and read (unless you just want to drool over Mignola’s flawless art). However, Hellboy is a very easy comic series to get into, even for someone who has never read a comic in their life! Hellboy was entirely created by Mike Mignola and still kept in his capable hands to this day. For this reason I believe Hellboy is very accessible to readers. There is no confusion about where to begin or who is who. Unlike Ironman or Captain America, Hellboy has a very clear timeline and progression. He battles witches, dragons, demons, and every supernatural creature in-between. Mignola is an amazing story-teller and even better artist. In Hellboy in Hell it feels like Hellboy is getting achingly close to his destiny as the Anung un Rama. We meet his two brothers who both turn out to be jerks and we get some beautiful art of demons. Pick it up and fall in love!
