Mike Mignola has a formula now: take a character from one graphic novel, make him the hero of a new novel or series of novels, create a background using material from classic pulp and crank sources, include characters from his own mythology, end it all in a catastrophic battle that the reader is assured will be futile in changing the depressing outcome. If this sounds like I at least am becoming bored, well, I am.

Yet the best part of this tale is the oldest element: the sufferings of the poor monster, which always makes me disgusted with his tormentors, even though in real life I would probably act like them. Mignola pities him too, apparently, for he gives him a Hyperborean princess as a spirit guide, deus ex machina, and, finally, goddess of a paradise where he might find peace. ( )

This one didn't capture my attention at all.

Recommended for Hellboy completists only (yes, this is a Hellboy spin-off). ( )
