And the next day.


I have just read the Hellboy 9 (The Wild Hunt) collection and I have to say that it is absolutely, absolutely, (and again ... absolutely) fantastic. Fegredo's illustrations are completely spot on and convey the mystery and mysticism superbly. The drawings make an effective use of light and shade for the eerie tones of the text and I think the drawings of Hellboy himself follow the Mignola ideals with excellence. Fabulous colours too. Well done guys! However, the best part really, is the use of ancient legend. King Arthur! Astonishing but not absurd. An imaginative and engaging concept - can't wait for number 10!
