Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.: The Seven Wives Club

Words by Mike Mignola. Art by Adam Hughes.

Experts of their respective crafts, Mignola, Hughes, and Robins have truly delivered a fantastic one-shot. From the gruesome mystery that lays at the story’s core to the exemplary artwork, everything in this book works together beautifully. Though an over-sized one-shot could have given the story a bit more breathing room, the issue works well regardless. Do not miss out on this terrific entry into the Hellboy mythos. (9/10)
