Title: Hellboy, Vol 1: Seed of Destruction
Author: Mike Mignola
Rating: 4/5 stars
Mike Mignola's first collection of his Hellboy series, Seed of Destruction sets the tone and feel for the rest of the series. With a story and art by Mike Mignola and a script by John Byrne, Seed of Destruction introduces us to Hellboy, a demon brought over to our dimension by Rasputin in an effort by the Nazis to gain supernatural help during WWII. Hellboy is brought to our dimension as a young child, hence the name that sticks, and when we are introduced to him as an adult, Hellboy is working for the Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense, or BPRD, where he investigates supernatural phenomena. Truth be told, I don't think there was too much to this story, but it was a well-crafted introduction to the mythos and characters of Hellboy.
I simply want to read.
I'll more than likely occasionally post on here what I've been reading, and if there is something that really blows my mind, I'll probably have more to say about it and may write up a proper post, but for right now, things are going to be very quiet around here.
As always, happy reading!
2017 editI will continue to blog according to my health and ability, and connecting my posts thru Goodreads, so please be patient if things get quiet around here again this year. 2017 edit #2I am happy to report that my bone marrow transplant was a success and that I'm feeling more like myself everyday. That said, I'm going to try to start blogging a little more frequently, but please bear with me as I still continue to recover.
