This is Hellboy Volume 2: Wake the Devil

“This collection … distils all that is best about the comic book into a dark, intoxicating ruby wine. Sit down and knock it back in one, then wait for your reading experience to undergo a mystifying and alarming transformation.
Hellboy is a passport to a corner of funnybook heaven you may never want to leave. Enter and enjoy.” – Alan Moore

A murder in a New York wax museum and a missing corpse lead Hellboy and the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense into ancient Romanian castles on the trail of a sleeping legend: the nobleman vampire, Vladimir Guirescu. Nazi scientists, revived in
Hellboy: Seed of Destruction, prepare for the return of Rasputin and the end of the world, and Hellboy confronts his purpose on Earth.

Dark Horse presents new editions of the entire Hellboy line with new covers, beginning with
Seed of Destruction, the basis of director Guillermo del Toro's film.

Hellboy is one of the most celebrated comics series in recent years. The ultimate artists' artist and a great storyteller whose work is in turns haunting, hilarious, and spellbinding. Mike Mignola has won numerous awards in the comics industry and beyond. When strangeness threatens to engulf the world, a strange man will come to save it. Sent to investigate a mystery with supernatural overtones, Hellboy discovers the secrets of his own origins, and his link to the Nazi occultists who promised Hitler a final solution in the form of a demonic avatar.

Hellboy is a brilliant example of how to elevate the comic of the future to a higher literary level while achieving a higher pitch of excitement." – Robert Bloch, from his introduction to Seed of Destruction

“Intrigue, action, horror, and the supernatural blend together seamlessly … a book created with an abundance of imagination and attention to detail in the art and story. It is an introduction of a distinct character and unique world that is overflowing with endless possibility.” –
Comics Authority

Comics Alliance

•Comics website and blog

“Hellboy comics, are adventure comics first and foremost. The comedy keeps us firmly on the fun side of things. Mignola gives us something we can recognize as being scary, but instead chooses to show us the action-oriented side of things, rather than going for skin-crawlingly horrible terror.”

Comics Bulletin

•Comic book website

“A superb series of graphic novels.”
