Hellboy Omnibus Volume 1: Seed of Destruction Reviews

    The first Hellboy Omnibus shows its characters taking themselves just seriously enough and the stories being just spooky enough to manage an enjoyable escapist balance that let's Mignola's energetic imagination run rampant. Having backed the Hellboy: The Board Game kickstarter as a fan...

    I've read these stories before (included here are the first two arcs plus some side stories, including the one that introduces Roger the Homunculus), so it's only lacking the spark of originality. Everything else is wonderful. Hellboy is a great character, almost always either over it ...

    There is something so seductive about he work of Mike Mignola and Hellboy himself (I cannot be the only one with board games and a reboot of the film franchise around the corner). And finally my wishes have been answered - the collected stories are finally coming out in Omnibus edition...

    I love Hellboy. I love the comic book series and the movies. The art is minimal, distinctive and definitely not pretty - but perfect for Hellboy. The paranormal storyline is one of my favorites, and reading the Hellboy narrative in chronological order was a revelation. Let's face it - ...

    Story of Hellboy's origin. Magnificent omnibus edition containing story of Hellboy's conjuring and follow up stories in which Hellboy tries to find more about himself while constantly tripping over Rasputin and his machinations. My first contact with Hellboy was a little bit weird -...

    In an attempt to squeeze some more money out of the Hellboy franchise, Dark Horse Comics is republishing the stories in internal chronological order (starting with Hellboy's birth in 1944 and going on to his afterlife in Hell) with a bunch of "Omnibus Editions." The plan is to have fou...

    Right from the start, Hellboy's mixture of humor, pathos, and genuinely creepy Lovecraftian horror just works. The character and his world feel like they've always been there, even in Mignola's earliest stories scripted by John Byrne. Sometimes things just work in ways that defy outrig...

    Took me long enough, but I finally started reading Hellboy. Maybe waiting for this omnibus to come out was a good idea. If your like me and not sure where to start with Hellboy, this volume is for you. Dark Horse is not only putting these out faster than most omnibus editions, but thes...

    So two things crossed my mind when I picked up this title. Glad I waited because Hellboy (So far) is complete. So I'll be able to read it all. Second though after finishing this title is why in the blue (or red) hell did I wait so long to read this!?!? So if you don't know anything ...

    3rd time's the charm, I guess. Read through the trades, read through the Library Editions and now its time to give the Omnibus a shot and boy this was no surprise...its just as wonderful an experience the first time. Although Library Edition was the definitive experience, Mignola's cha...

    There's a reason Hellboy has endured, so popularly, and it's probably because it was very good right from the beginning. I will admit to getting lost a couple moments, and think Mignola's unique black-heavy art is off the mark sometimes (like, in the snow in the mountains), but even in...

    Hellboy is one of my all time favorite comics. This is the perfect time to introduce yourself to Hellboy if you've never picked it up before. His entire core story is collected in these 4 omnibuses. Newer collections tell untold stories from Hellboy's past. I find myself going back to ...

    "We are what we are, and we have our paths to travel." I've had a few friends recommend the Hellboy books to me over the years, so I was expecting some solid entertainment from the series. What I wasn't expecting was a work of art that seamlessly blends a smorgasbord of literary ...

    How good was this. I really enjoyed the Hellboy mythos and world. Great story lines, action and amazing characters. This contained a couple of volumes and some short stories. They all really continued and overall story arc, with great background information on the characters ( good and...

    It's hard to remember that Hellboy came from the early 90's independent comics explosion, and shared space with Byrne's _Torch of Liberty_ character. That HB outgrew that space so quickly is testament to how creative and offbeat the character was from the get go, and the energy that Mi...

    You can find my review on my blog by clicking here. It?s a bit hard to not have heard of this giant red ape-like creature. His presence alone invades the atmosphere and his charisma steals the show. And to turn him into the world?s greatest paranormal investigator too? He?s ea...

    This is easily one of my favourite comics series of all time. I love the pulp story telling which is weaved with a rich mythos and great characters. Hellboy is a fantastic protagonist, equal parts snarky and cool, and his team are also great (much love for Abe Sapien, my favourite mind...

    Near the end of World War II, the evil Rasputin summoned a creature from another world -- a little red demon baby. And so starts Mike Mignola's distinctly offbeat "Hellboy Volume 1: Seed of Destruction and Wake the Devil," two interconnected action-factory stories with a bright-red ...

    Solid 4 stars. Very nice art, distinctive style, definitely. The story (or stories) is very much original. I always enjoyed how the color red is underused in the panels so that when Hellboy shows up, he really pops and stands out. He's a very vibrant, bright red that leaps off the ...

    The World of Mignola When it comes to Mike Mignola's most popular work, Hellboy is far and away the most popular series he has ever been a part of or created. And I have been to wanting read this book as well as the other 3 omnibuses for ages now. And I so glad I finally got into it...

    Behind a monk who's supposed to be dead, the relics portraying demons caste in stone by memo-americans hide in shadows, and we all miss his words because a portal to another world, another time, opens and some new nightmare bursts forth to end humanity. And to all this Red just sighs, ...

    Seed of Destruction **** The introduction to Hellboy and his universe. Fun and engaging while being a lot more wordy then what Mike Mignola usually writes (due to John Byrne's scripting the first 4 issues). Contains the origin of Hellboy and introduces the first main villian, Rasput...

    I got a real Euro-vibe from these early Hellboy stories. I wouldn't be surprised if Mignola was inspired by Tardi's 'The Extraordinary Adventures of Adčle Blanc-Sec', a great series about a French detective lady. Like Hellboy, Adele solves mysteries based on real life locations and ev...
