Hellboy, the Corpse

 HELZ   (Dark Horse, 2004)

and 1996, 1998, 2004 Mike Mignola

Released around the time the Hellboy movie was hitting multiplexes across the country, this done-in-one 25-center from Dark Horse establishes the basics of the character for new audience members and offers up a gripping mystery for longtime fans. A baby is missing in rural Ireland, and Hellboy must bury a cursed corpse if he wants to recover the child. Trouble is, finding a graveyard with a vacancy is tougher than one might think. Can the demon operative for the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense take care of business and get the kid back to his worried parents? Writer and artist Mike Mignola delivers the answer in this introductory one-shot.
