Hellboy Volume 8: Darkness Calls - Mike Mignola

Everyone’s favorite “destined to destroy us all” superhero returns to confront the forces of darkness that are gathering to destroy our hero so, presumably, they can be the ones that destroy us all. While this isn’t the first story where Hellboy has to save the world, it is the longest storyline (it isn’t concluded here) and has the most apocalyptic feel to it as numerous former enemies return. Duncan Fegredo does an OK job imitating Mignola’s art style and I suppose the tale couldn’t have been told without him, but it just isn’t perfect, and lacks making the beneficial mistakes that Mignola makes in the layout (wherein he has to fill in an extra panel for example) that somehow just pay off so beautifully.
