Praise for the comics that comprise the B.P.R.D. series of trade paperbacks: "A wonderful throwback to the old spooky "Hellboy" storylines, this comic works wonderfully. The artwork is just plain awesome, and the writing as always top notch. If you are looking for a goodmystery/horror short story look no further than this. (And then read everything else of BPRD). My only gripe with the story was I wish it were longer." "-Comic Addicts"
Mike Mignola - John Byrne - Hellboy - Seed of Destruction
''Hellboy is a brilliant example of how to elevate the comic of the future to a higher literary level while achieving a higher pitch of excitement. Its story line combines traditional concepts with modern frames of reference, the whole being swept along by the vitruoso treatment of dazzling artistic effects . . . This is far from the 'pop art' of the Andry Warhol world or the inane imagery of the drug culture. The creative aproach found in Hellboy is a newly evolving art from its own, addressed and attuned to today." from the introduction by Robert Bloch
