This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is:
Hellboy in Hell (v.1 & 2)
Story by . . . . Mike Mignola
Art by . . . . . . Mike Mignola & Dave Stewart
From Goodreads (v.1):
After saving the world in The Storm and the Fury but sacrificing himself and Great Britain, Hellboy is dead, cast into Hell, where he finds many familiar faces and a throne that awaits him.
Mike Mignola returns to draw Hellboy’s ongoing story for the first time since Conqueror Worm. It’s a story only Mignola could tell, as more of Hellboy’s secrets are at last revealed, in the most bizarre depiction of Hell you’ve ever seen.
From Goodreads (v.2):
After facing off for a second time against the Vampire of Prague, Hellboy, dead and in Hell, comes down with a fatal illness and seeks the help of an incompetent team of doctors. As he explores the geography of Hell, learning little from a confused pair of mapmakers, Hellboy gets a glimpse of the new World Tree that he helped to create, stands accused by his own sister of a terrible murder, and causes the destruction of Pandemonium itself in the climactic chapter of the series that the LA Times calls “the best work of [Mike Mignola’s] career.”
Our hosts for this episode are Brant Gillihan-Eddy, Joe Preti, and Tobiah Panshin. On our next episode we will be reading Injection, Vol. 1 & 2.
