After facing off for a second time against the Vampire of Prague, Hellboy, dead and in Hell, comes down with a fatal illness, and seeks the help of an incompetent team of doctors. As he explores the geography of Hell, learning little from a confused pair of map makers, Hellboy gets a glimpse of the new World Tree that he helped to create, stands accused of murder by his own sister and, in a way, brings about the destruction of Pandemonium itself.
Praise for the first volume of Hellboy In Hell:
“… Mignola’s simple but elegant panel design should be studied by everyone who is or who wants to be a cartoonist. The script is a delight, too, as Hellboy’s down-to-earth anger and everyman astonishment remains funny and refreshing.” –Publishers Weekly
“The master of modern horror comics.” -IGN
“Mike Mignola and Dave Stewart work magic on those pages.” -Multiversity
