This is Hellboy Volume 6: Strange Places

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

After leaving the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense, Hellboy's travels take him briefly to Africa, then for a two-year stint at the bottom of the ocean.

An ancient witch doctor, a giant fish woman, and the keeper of the secret history of the universe force Hellboy to either accept his role in the coming apocalypse, or have that role stolen from him. Weird undersea creatures and talking lions populate this turning-point adventure, which reveals secrets buried since Hellboy's very creation.

This volume collects Harvey-and-Eisner-award winner Mike Mignola's
Hellboy series The Third Wish and The Island with over a dozen unused pages, and a new epilogue.

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

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

“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

“A superb series of graphic novels.”
