Review: Hellboy, Vol. 1: Seed of Destruction

Series: Hellboy: #1

If I have a real name, I’ve never known it. I’m called Hellboy.

I recently discovered comiXology (mostly for reading Fullmetal Alchemist, Vol. 1). Hellboy was one of the comiXology Unlimited suggested reads. Free trial? Let’s do it.

I greatly enjoyed the movie movie (the 2004 one, I haven’t seen the 2019 one)… but as good as that was, the comic is better.

It’s got ACTION!


Creepy tentacles!

And even touching moments.

It’s a bit creepy and violent, so maybe not for you if that’s not your thing. But if those are? Give it a go! I don’t think you’ll regret it.

I’d be the first to admit that I have no shortage of faults. But if I had to pick one, the one that’s gotten me into the most trouble over the years…

…it would be that I sometimes get angry.

Overall, graphic novels have a lot of potential for telling a different sort of stories than books, audiobooks, movies, or TV and I really should read more of them. This seems like an excellent place to start.
