Thanks for reading! Hellboy is a pretty good read whether you’re looking for some cool occult action or something with a little more depth, so I bet you’d enjoy it.
I still need to get around to reading Hell on Earth, I’ve been picking my way through all of the early BPRD stuff like 1946.
The only major complaint I have about the series as a whole is that it starts to get away from the Nazi occultism stuff, so I’d have liked to see more scenes like that intro with Rasputin and the Thule Society. For some reason that’s all weirdly fascinating to me
I liked the first movie for what it was but the second one was definitely too cheesy for my liking.
Something that I thought they didn’t really carry over to the movies very well was how generally amicable Hellboy seemed to be. He’s definitely more laid back in the comics.
The pacing definitely gets faster but I’m not sure you’d much more enjoyment out of the subject matter. I actually really enjoyed the first one so it’s kind of hard for me to gauge how you’d react.
I just finished up the omnibuses for Plague of Frogs, is Hell on Earth a good continuation of the story so far?
I definitely approve of Ron Perlman being chosen for this role.
