    Hellboy: House of the Living Dead

    Mignola has never bowed to convention, and House of the Living Dead is much more than a homage to Universal Horror. Sure, it is obvious that he wanted to make a story involving a bunch of classic monsters and some Mexican wrestlers, but the story ends up being more than the sum of its parts.

    ADVANCE REVIEW: Baltimore: The Curse Bells #4

    Baltimore: The Curse Bells is much more Poe than Lovecraft. And it is actually a disturbing, if not downright scary, comic. Even though there are vampires running around, there is also a sense of reality and its cruelty.

    Abe Sapien: The Devil Does Not Jest #2

    Only in Mike Mignola and John Arcudi's realm can a light-hearted romp involve summoning demons from the pits of hell, an infectious disease that blows you up like Veruca Salt on bad blueberries, a few nice axe chops and a beheading, and enough puss and bile to fill a swimming pool.
