J'ai tendance à préférer Hellboy sur des récits assez courts, basés sur un concept et une narration solide. J'ai toujours pensé que les formes longues lui allaient mal au teint, qu'elles étaient tout de suite moins funky, avec lui.

Hellboy in Hell se situe pile entre les deux. Si c'est une aventure de longue haleine, la descente aux enfers du diable rouge, qui s'accompagne d'ailleurs d'un changement de ton assez net de la série, ce voyage dans le grand "en bas" est constitué de péripéties à l'enchaînement assez lâche, qui donnent à l'ensemble un côté presque onirique. J'ai beaucoup aimé l'histoire des soldats napoléoniens, par exemple.

Et puis graphiquement, il y a des pages magnifiques, crépusculaires, épiques. Un très bel album de ce point de vue là.

Positively Shakespearean in Scope 14 mai 2014
Par Pop Bop - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
This may well be the best presentation yet of Hellboy, from his birth and his father's intentions for him to the end of this particular story arc we see much more of who and why Hellboy is than ever before.

A tragic figure, the chapters of this book echo Hamlet, Richard, Henry and perhaps most of all MacBeth as Hellboy struggles with his kingly destiny on an empty throne in Hell.

Will he assassinate Satan? Will he defeat his scheming brothers to hold the throne? As the witchfinder Edward Grey serves as Hellboy's Virgil in this richly imagined Hell, what will we learn and how will Hellboy decide his own fate? What you know for sure is that it will be weird and Hellboy won't be impressed.

The big deal here is that the story and all of the art were done by Mike Mignola, so this is the Grade A stuff.

This volume, ("The Descent"), collects issues 1 through 4 of the ongoing series "Hellboy in Hell", and the story "Three Gold Whips", (sometimes identified as issue 5, and much more of a stand alone even though it takes place in Hell). The overall story will continue with additional issues, but in the meantime this is a solid entry and worth a few rereads because of the numerous inside jokes and references.

Please note that I received a free advance ecopy of this book in exchange for a candid review. Apart from that I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book.

Another excellent Hellboy title and a potential entry point for readers new to Hellboy. 4 juin 2014

Hellboy in Hell (Vol. 1): The Descent by Mike Mignola

I'm a huge fan of Hellboy. I love all the books and both movies. I think the character is funny and endearing and perfect in every way. I really like Mike Mignola's art, too. So it was with great pleasure that I read Hellboy in Hell: The Descent, which is the first Hellboy book in many years both written and drawn by Mignola. Though he's continued to write many if not most of the Hellboy tales, he has not written all of them, and a good number of them are drawn by artists imitating his style. But in this latest volume, Mignola returns to his creation, with the masterful Dave Stewart adding colors and Clem Robbins acting as letterer.

This volume of Hellboy starts with a very brief, one-paragraph summary of the Hellboy story, ending with a one-sentence explanation of why Hellboy is in hell: "Shortly thereafter he fought a dragon and was killed." I won't give any spoilers about what happened before "shortly thereafter," but I do want to suggest that if you are interested in Arthurian Legend and have never read Hellboy, you might want to read this series from the beginning. However, if you don't want to start at the beginning, this volume makes for an excellent starting point, since in it, we find out about Hellboy's origin.

As the story opens, Hellboy is falling into the Abyss, or the outer edge of hell, and once there, he must deal with his past. Mignola has an appropriate scene for revealing the structure of this comic book: Hellboy, in another part of the Abyss, witnesses a strange, street puppet show performing A Christmas Carol by Dickens. Hellboy will also face his past, present, and future with some guides. However, he has one primary guide throughout most of the story, and this guide takes him to Pandemonium, the heart of hell, the Citadel of the Fly, where Hellboy is shown the throne and crown (which eerily floats in flames), both of which he has refused. His guide suggestively tells him: "Your father's sword . . . His ring of office . . . All rightfully yours to take." But Hellboy refuses them again. He also is given the opportunity to kill Satan who has been sleeping for 2,000 years. And Hellboy decides to . . .

This collection of five individual comics is episodic in nature, but in a good way: Hellboy finally has explained to him how he got his strange hand; he meets his two elder, and very angry, brothers; and he witnesses a man who has sold his soul for gold. As always, Mignola smoothly incorporates literary allusions, from Dickens to Shakespeare's MacBeth and Milton's Paradise Lost. Though Lovecraft is not cited, Lovecraftian creatures seem to be the inspiration for some of the creatures we see in Hell. The story about selling the soul for money, of course, is a well-known story, but Mignola puts his own twist on it, and by having Hellboy meet one man right before his soul is claimed, we get to see our main character interrupt the action and disturb in his own odd way the expected outcome.

It's been a year or so since I've reread the first Hellboy book, so I hesitate to make too bold of a claim: I think this book is not quite as good as that first one, but it might be that I'm merely overly familiar with Hellboy now, and as a result, he's unavoidably lost a certain amount of novelty. Still, this new trade collection is very good, and it offers one more way to enter the world of Hellboy. I would suggest starting with this book, the first Hellboy ever, or even the movies. At the very least, though, start somewhere: You don't want to go through life without enjoying Hellboy, one of the best modern creations in the world of comics. In a field of art where the most popular characters are still ones that were created between 1938 and 1968, Hellboy, created in 1993, is still a rare exception.

Underwhelming but atmospheric 24 mai 2014
Par Sam Quixote - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
The short version of why Hellboy’s in hell is that at the end of the last Hellboy book, The Storm and The Fury, he slew the dragon and saved England but died when he was caught off guard and the ghost of the witch Nimue plucked out his heart. This is what happened next…

Hellboy in Hell isn’t just the title of the book but a pretty accurate summary of what happens in the book. There isn’t a plot, it’s just Hellboy wandering around hell looking at stuff with a variety of different Virgils explaining what he’s looking at. This is weirdly the book’s strength and weakness because this is the first Hellboy book Mike Mignola’s both written and drawn in years, and his art has only improved with age. So while Hellboy meanders, the creatures and backgrounds he comes across are visually incredible.

Here hell isn’t the fire and brimstone Christian stereotype but in Mignola’s hands becomes an ethereal, perpetually twilit land of eerie shadows against Victorian buildings. The effect is quietly chilling as wonderfully ancient structures give an old world atmosphere and provides a gorgeous backdrop to the flying demons and Lovecraftian monsters that float around. Pandemonium sits in the midst of the muted yet ominous Lake of Fire, a looming collection of ancient Roman-esque architectural buildings surrounded by creepy talking statues housing the seat of hell’s power, the Citadel of the Fly, and the Devil himself. If nothing else, Hellboy in Hell is worth picking up for Mignola’s first-rate art.

But when it comes to story, things get a bit messy. Ideas like Hellboy going to the place where he’s been banishing monsters for decades, like a cop sent to prison and meeting all the criminals he’s put away, is touched on for a spell before being shuffled away and forgotten. Literary allusions pepper the script from Dickens’ A Christmas Carol being parodied, to lines from Shakespeare and Milton being quoted, all of which give the impression of a deep, complex read when it really isn’t. Hellboy doesn’t want the throne of hell so Mignola throws in a line or two from Macbeth which says something similar – kinda obvious.

The more successful elements of the narrative are things that have been explored in previous Hellboy books – Hellboy’s purpose for existing and his right hand of doom, which mark him out to be the heir to the throne of hell. Mignola re-treads some of this material but adds more detail behind Hellboy’s birth mother and introduces his demonic half-brothers who want Hellboy’s power even if he doesn’t. What happens when Hellboy encounters Satan himself is the most interesting part of the book as it makes the reader wonder what happens to hell afterwards but Mignola doesn’t take that thread any further (maybe to explore in later issues?).

I appreciate Mignola’s ambitious vision where he’s literally creating his own idea of hell utilising numerous artistic sources throughout human history while making it distinctly his, and Hellboy’s, own, but I kept waiting for Hellboy to try to figure out a way to come back to Earth. He seemed more than happy to simply be just in hell – is this it? Is Hellboy going to be in hell, walking about while remaining nonplussed, forever? The final story in the book is a standalone piece where Hellboy’s having a smoke when a lost spirit asks him for help and they go on a little adventure. It seems indicative of Mignola’s approach to Hellboy’s new situation – that he’s content to keep Hellboy in hell for the time being and be in no particular hurry to return him to Earth, or point him in any narrative direction at all.

The Descent isn’t the best Hellboy book if you’re looking for a more driven narrative but it’s fine for what it does which is establish and explore the fascinating new setting for Hellboy – though I’m assuming this is done because Hellboy’s staying in hell for a while; if not, then this is a lot of pretty filler. I would like to feel that there was a point to all of this but the ambling way Mignola writes these days shows that urgency isn’t something he’s overly concerned with and that he prefers to show interesting things rather than tell interesting stories – a quality that doesn’t make for amazing comics.

The art really is gorgeous though and it isn’t hard to see why the book looks amazing when the art team is Mignola, Dave Stewart on colours and Clem Robins lettering, and parts of the book are entertaining to read but the overall impression of Hellboy in Hell Vol 1 is of a fragmentary and unsatisfactory story. Which is a shame because after Batman and Superman, Hellboy’s my favourite superhero and I really wanted Hellboy in Hell to be the masterpiece I hoped it would be but it turned out to be an underwhelming next chapter in the Hellboy saga.
Hellboy in full. 13 juillet 2014

Hellboy. The demon that forged his own path to be more than a prophecy, more than what light or dark chose for him to be...to be his own man....er demon rather. When we last saw him however, he had given his life to save the world. And for the first time he is returning to his father’s world. But the world is not all that it’s cracked up to be and Hellboy’s fight has not yet ended. Even though he has declared his intentions not to take the throne of hell itself, he must fight off others that would want it...and will kill Hellboy to do so. And before it is done, he must kill the Lord of the Underworld himself, if he is to have any peace for a time.

It’s hard to believe but Hellboy has been with us since March of 1994. In the twenty years he’s been around, Mike Mignola, has told us Hellboy’s story and expanded the universe to include other characters and groups. Both Hellboy and Mignola have influenced the larger world of comics, with the thick blocky line illustration and characters that stand on the edge of a knife, constantly battling their darker nature in the fight to save the world that hates them. And this maybe the best volume of Hellboy yet. Here we get to see Hellboy from his birth to his father’s intentions for him to why Hellboy has the power that he does. Mike returned to his roots and did the writing and illustrations for this volume, so it is classic Hellboy style from the master. This a great storyline and great chance to see Hellboy for who he is without anyone else surrounding him and of course it has some nice inside jokes and references. Oh and one of my favorite parts is the backmatter, where Mignola showcases some of his sketches and notes and other drawings. In this one he has some humorous little commentary next to the bug creatures including “Hello. I am a bug.” It just made me laugh a bit.

If you’re a fan of Hellboy then this is a must read. And if you’ve never ventured into the Hellboy universe at all, this is a good one to pick up and learn about the Hellboy universe. I give the book 4 out of 5 stars.
All Mignola and all awesome! 24 juin 2014

In 'Hellboy in Hell, Vol 1: The Descent' we follow Hellboy's journey after he sacrificed himself and died. It's all Mike Mignola and it's all just great.

After the events in recent Hellboy books, Hellboy kills a dragon, then has his heart plucked out by Nimue (of Arthurian legend). He finds himself in hell searching for answers. Along the way, more secrets are revealed, characters he's met before show up and in his own wry way, Hellboy manages to almost find more trouble than he can handle. He helps to regain a lost soul for a soldier. He finds his throne and is visited by three ghosts (just like Ebenezer Scrooge, sort of).

There are many literary and mythological versions of hell presented here. The art is great with huge chaotic cemeteries, abandoned old towns, tortured statues and giant bugs. I really enjoyed this one.

I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Diamond Book Distributors and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
