Il n'y a donc rien à redire sur l'objet en lui même, qui est de toute beauté.
Pour ce qui est du contenu, l'ouvrage compile les deux premières histoires de Hellboy dessinées par Mignola (que j'ai pris plaisir à relire, ce qui démontre qu'elles n'ont pas trop vieilli).
Et en bonus, des sketch, en grand nombre, dont une bonne partie sont inédits (en ce sens qu'ils n'apparaissent pas dans l'artbook "art of hellboy")...
Un peu cher en soi, mais le rapport qualité prix est imbattable !
Recommandé aux amateurs, donc.

I love how big it is and how well the art looks, the quality is fantastic for the price its totally worth every penny, i really can't wait to read more of it and can't wait to put Vol.2 right next to it. (which is already being pre-orderd on amazon :-D) I sure hope they do something like this for B.P.R.D. As well as hope they come out with covers like this for other popular dark horse series!!
Only thing i would have liked would have been a higher page count.
The only thing missing from the original trade paperback collections are the pin-ups by other artists but, really, once you see how beautiful Mignola's work looks printed in this oversize format you hardly miss them. The colors (by Mark Chiarello on SEED and James Sinclair on WAKE) are vividly reproduced on bright, glossy paper (be careful to avoid fingerprinting, though).
Any fan of HELLBOY, Mike Mignola, or comics in general should look into adding this book to their library. I look foward to volume 2.
The book is gorgeous. It's an oversized felt hardcover with wonderfully thick and glossy pages, and many extras(intros, sketches with commentary, etc.). Needless to say, the stories are genius. If you've ever read a Hellboy story, you know what I'm talking about. Mignola is the best at what he does. That is, nobody can write a fantasy/action/adventure/horror/weird/humorous story like him. He's the King. This massive book contains the first 2 TPBs(which are both fantastic by the way). I really don't know what to say about the stories contained here aside from the fact that I LOVE them! Hellboy is one of the coolest characters ever created. It's tied for my favorite series of all-time with, "The Mice Templar"(and possibly DH's "Conan" - which I've only read 3 books of so far, but have been blown away by 2 of them and very satisfied with the other).
Concerning "Hellboy", Mignola writes and draws such compelling and distinctive stories that, as I stated above, he has no equal when it comes to writing these kinds of stories. And no, I don't know how to really put his kinds of stories into words. They belong to a genre all their own. I haven't read anything else quite like them. They defy any one category and fit partially within many. His stories are heavily influenced by his love of mythology and folklore. While I find these two things in and of themselves to be interesting most of the time, sometimes they just aren't that entertaining. Mike knows how to deliver the goods when it comes to an entertaining read. With "Hellboy", he expertly weaves ideas from old tales of mythology and folklore with his own modern take on things and fresh new ideas to create these very cool and exciting tales that pay homage to the very stories that inspire much of his work. His prose is "blue-collar" in a sense, yet elegant, sophisticated and poetic simultaneously. His style of artwork belongs to him and him alone. No one else draws like Mike. His use of simple and bold linework along with his orchestration of where he wants the deep blacks and other vivid, mood-changing colors that he wants the colorist(in this case, the legendary Dave Stewart) to utilize make for a magnificent-looking book! Through his use of uniquely sequential panel-to-panel storytelling skills, and perspectives/angles that separate his work from anyone else, he invites you into his beautifully strange and wonderful world in such a way that you feel compelled to continue to delve deeper into his stories as you pore over the powerful images from page to page, imbued with a desire to find out what happens next. I FEEL something when I read "Hellboy". That is something I always look for in a graphic novel(or any kind of book really). And you find it in spades here in this "Hellboy Library Ed. Vol.1". I could go on forever talking about how huge a fan I am of "Hellboy" and Mike Mignola in general. But don't worry, I won't. I just wanted to give you an idea of how talented this Mignola guy is if this book is to be your first introduction to his work. For everyone else, I'm sure you can understand my desire to brag a little bit on this legendary comic book character and equally legendary creator.
Buy this book and all of the other volumes as soon as you can. You won't regret it. And oh yeah, "Hail to the King, baby!"
