Hellboy: Seed of Destruction

First appearing in Dark Horse Presents (and as a comic character in Next Men), Hellboy now appears in his own multiple Eisner award-winning series. His story begins as the Third Reich began ticking down its final hours. The Nazis made a last, desperate attempt to turn the tide by summoning unearthly powers to come to their rescue. What they got was a strange red child—Hellboy.

Hellboy fell into the hands of the Allies and has now grown into adulthood. No stranger to weird phenomena, he now makes his living as a paranormal investigator. In “Seed of Destruction,” he takes on his strangest case yet—the murder of his adoptive father. Joined by Elizabeth Sherman, a pyrokinetic, and Abraham Sapien, a genetically engineered man-fish, they’ll take on all manner of danger in order to solve the case. And before it’s all over, Hellboy will have come face-to-face with the sorcerer who summoned him into this world…
