If you've only seen the movies, don't expect this book to be the action filled joy ride you are used to This hellboy is very dark, brooding and contemplative and the monsters he faces are much intelligent and cunning If you are even bothering looking at this page, you'll enjoy this book though, don't be disappointed by the differences between the movies and this, embrace them and indulge in hellboys adventures You will not be disappointed.
