First off anything even remotely Cthulhu influenced that is drawn by Richard Corben is already a good thing.

The first story is, I think, the better of the two, there was an overall creepy feeling to it that I really enjoyed. The way that Sullivan got his just deserts was poetic justice at its finest. However, I also had a sense reading it that it wasn't anything that I hadn't read before and that hurt it quite a bit.

The second story was also enjoyable, but was perhaps to short for me to really get into strongly. Like the first story I enjoyed the poetic justice that was Donald's fate.

Overall, this issue was good, but not great. There are lots of things that I enjoyed about it though.

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.

Story: 7
Art: 9
My Score: 8

Abe Sapien is great. He's my favorite character from the Hellboy universe for sure. His arc throughout the course of B.P.R.D. is fantastic.

Oh I'm not bashing anyone, I'm just surprised that there are this few reviews. By now there's normally a lot more than two.

I'm really busy but will get a review up before the cut-off as long as it's still no earlier than Tuesday morning.
