I didn’t know who or what this character was untill an issue of Savage Dragon where him and Dragon fight a giant mummy and a bunch of Vampires. In 2004 directed by Guillermo del Toro staring Ron Perlman the movie came out. I was hooked, I still have not read every single Hellboy comics but I do like the ones I have read. There were two animated movies put out as well and those are really good. Hell boy has a spin off book and I have not read it but I heard its most excellent. BPRD. Hellboy currently is the king of Hell and a lot of people think its leading up to a big THE END of Hellboy story line as the world he lives in is a disaster. The comic is published by Dark Horse who also publishes Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel/Faith. If you go to your local comic book store you can pick up a Hellboy 20th Anniversary sampler. Hellboy was created by Mike Mignola back in 1994.

Buffy returns to comics with Season 10 this time with the team of Rebecca Isacks and Christopher Gage who worked on Angel and Faith S9 (for anyone unfamiliar with the books there was no S6-8 of Angel it was called that to show where in the time line it takes place with the Buffy Comic, all mini series and one shots carry the SEASON subtitle). The entire S8 and 9 are in tpb thru Dark Horse comics so make sure you go read it. Buffy and the gang are still dealing with the Zompires and now have the threat of Vampires with all new powers, shape shift into bats, wolfs, mist and can with stand sun light. It also takes more than just a poke of Mr.Pointy to stop them. Spike it right by Buffy side in this book, Billy the Vampire Slayer and his bf/watcher also returns as well. Its a action packed great way to kick off the series. In the end Faith shows up with Willows ex gf slayer and they are about to get into a big fight with the new evolution of Vampires run by Vickie the Vampire, yes Vickie the Vampire and her and Buffy make fun of each other’s names. Its a great book the art is AMAZING I loved the artist Rebecca on Angel and I love her on this book as well. Pick this new book up and follow it thru the end of Joss Wheadons final Buffy The Vampire Slayer chapter.
