Hellboy ― volume 2: wake the devil. John Arcudi is the lead writer with Mike Mignola. Unlike the previous cycle, which was visually defined by mostly a single artist, Hell on Earth had many artists on the title. Hell on Earth Collections.

They have been featured in numerous miniseries, one-shots, back-up features, crossovers, and guest appearances. The following list includes all miniseries, one-shots, back-up features, crossovers, and guest appearances of Hellboy and related characters sorted by date of publishing.

The Bureau is walking into the biggest disaster in its fifty-year history! Also in this five-issue series, Mike Mignola and Dark Horse are proud to introduce the newest mysterymen on the block, Gary Gianni's.

Mike Mignola's fascination with ghosts and monsters began at an early age; reading Dracula at age twelve introduced him to Victorian literature and folklore, from which he has never recovered. Starting in 1982 as a bad inker for Marvel Comics, he swiftly evolved into a not-so-bad artist. By the late 1980s, he had begun to develop his own unique graphic style, with mainstream projects like Cosmic Odyssey and Batman: Gotham by Gaslight. In 1994, he published the first Hellboy series through Dark Horse.

Mike Mignola took over sole writing duties for Wake the Devil after John Byrne's stint on Seed of Destruction. Mike Mignola never really wrote a full-scale plot and story for any comic he's drawn, but his inexperience in Wake the Devil is minimal. Nazis and vampires and ghosts, oh my!

Previous issues of The Devil You Know indicate a coming apocalyptic confrontation with the devil Varvara, who is trying to transform Earth into a demonic paradise capable of replacing the now-empty and desecrated Hell.

A murder in a New York wax museum and a missing corpse lead Hellboy and the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense into ancient Romanian castles on the trail of a sleeping legend: the nobleman vampire, Vladimir Guirescu. Nazi scientists, revived in Hellboy: Seed of Destruction, prepare for the return of Rasputin and the end of the world, and Hellboy confronts his purpose on earth. This 144-page book includes the complete, sell-out Wake the Devil miniseries, plus a new five-page epilogue and pinups by Bruce Timm, P. Craig Russell, Dave Cooper, Jay Stephens, Olivier Vatine, and Derek Thompson.

If your'e a fan of goth, horror, detectives, stylized art, or good comics, this is one for you. Mignola delivers another great yarn in the Hellboy mythos. This time out, Hellboy comes face to face with what might be his true nature and purpose on earth. By way of a hallucination the story of his origin is recounted to him in visions. Hellboy is thrown for a loop when one of the visions adresses him directly. The fun of this series is in getting to this point in the story. And even more fun is seeing the humanity in the demon detective when he gives the apparition his reply. If you're a fan of art like I am, you'll love the guest pin-ups in the back. I liked this book because it presented us with a more in-depth look at the character's backround and it was consistently better than the offerings that preceeded it (which were all great!)If you like this book, there are other Hellboy books in print as well as a text novel by Christopher Golden with illustrations by Mignola. Not to mention the great body of work he's only illustrated. Why don't you stop reading this and order it already!
This is the second Hellboy graphic novel. It is an improvement over the first one, as we get to know the old characters better, and interesting new characters are introduced. Creator Mike Mignola's Kirbyesque artwork is terrific, and this time he handles the writing himself (the first graphic novel was scripted by John Byrne). I don't want to give away too much of the plot, but I will explain that Hellboy is a paranormal investigator who appears to be a demon. This book is dedicated to Dracula, which should give you a clue as to what he encounters this time. This book should be especially appealing to people who like The X-Files or Buffy The Vampire Slayer, but I would encourage anyone who is a fan of sophisticated comic books to check it out.
An improvement over Hellboy, Vol. 1: Seed of Destruction (v. 1), this is where the ongoing story of Hellboy truly begins. First off, Mignola handles all the writing this time around, and his style really starts to show, as there's a lot less narration and a lot more showing what's happening. Things really get rolling for the rest of the series, with cliffhangers and villains introduced, instead of the complete story told in the first volume. This may be its main flaw, as there's no real resolution at the end, but it certainly makes you want to read the rest.

The art is, as always, stylish and great-looking. Mignola's dark, flat colors make this one of the most unique comics around, and I open it up quite often just to flip through quickly and take in the beautiful scenes inside. All around I really recommend this book, and the entire rest of the series.
I think what makes some of the Hellboy stories so interesting is the missing pieces. Mignola has such a deep history with this character that he doesn't always explain everything, which is a good thing. If he took the time to extrapolate on every thing he ties into the story, the story itself wouldn't go anywhere. The art is awesome and every volume I pick up makes me what go out and get every tpb involved in the world of Hellboy.
I love the supernatural, so Hellboy was a natural choice to read. I was very pleasantly surprised by the art. I love the drawing style and the ink work is amazing!
interesting storyline
Another great addition!
All of the wonderful macabre adventure and thrilling dark hero comics for that you've come to expect from Mike Mignola's Hellboy series.
