Hellboy: Double Feature of Evil
With two trades and a few one shots under my belt I think I can safely say that I can't find a reason to get invested in this character. Sapien yes... Hellboy not so much. I think every story I've read has been enjoyable and I've yet NOT to like anything Hellboy. But at the same time if I was told I could never read another Hellboy story, I don't think I would be that upset either.
This one shot didn't change my opinion on that either. I really liked the first story a great deal. Perfectly paced and well executed. I would even say that I actually had a favorite line: "There you go." It was a great way to end a nicely told tale. The second story fell way flat for me. It felt like three or four throw away pages just to kill off the issue. Probably the least enjoyable Hellboy story I've read to date.
If you like Hellboy there is no reason not to like this, though for the money you reall are getting cheated on pages since the second story is very disappointing. Still I didn't come out of it feeling any different about the title character.
My Score: 8
"I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright.
I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more.
I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive.
I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger.
I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.
I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.
I wish enough "Hello's" to get you through the final "Good-bye.."
