This is Hellboy Volume 8: Darkness Calls

“The best horror comic in a generation. This Mignola guy is a wizard.” – Frank Miller

Hellboy has finally returned from his adventures at sea, but no sooner has he settled on land than a conclave of witches drags him from his respite and into the heart of Russian folklore, where he becomes the quarry of the powerful and bloodthirsty witch Baba Yaga. Bent on revenge for the eye she had lost to Hellboy, Baba Yaga has enlisted the aid of a deathless warrior who will stop at nothing to destroy Hellboy.

Since his creation in 1993, Mike Mignola's
Hellboy has accumulated dozens of industry awards and become a favorite of fans and critics alike. Now, Mignola turns over drawing duties to Duncan Fegredo (Enigma, Ultimate Adventures) for a new chapter in the life of the World's Greatest Paranormal Investigator.

• Collects the entire six-issue miniseries, along with two new epilogues – one drawn by Mignola, and one by Fegredo – and an extensive sketchbook section from both artists!

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.

“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

“Hellboy restores my faith in the joy of comic books.” – Clive Barker

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.”

The AV Club

“The character that made [Mike Mignola] an industry legend.”
