Thanks for posting four stories. They made my evening. Bravo, sir.

>>77713741
no problemo, just spreading the love for my favourite comics universe ever

actually I'm considering doing the other old British adventures as well. Any interest?

>>77713477
Hellboy is great

Thanks for this. I love the English Hellboy stories, especially when they go to places I know. I used to live near Avebury and see the stones quite often, and now I live in Boudicca's old territory.

Gotta love the short Hellboy stories. Probably my favorite comics.

>>77724508
I'll agree that Witchfinder vol 2 probably lands pretty low on the list but I would probably not say that I didn't like it. I could blame this on saying Hellboy comic and not Mignolaverse but that seems like a cop-out. So I will rephrase. I have not read something with Hellboy in it that I didn't like.

Also, more Rivera.
>>
>>77711074
I love how Hellboy never takes that spooky stuff for completely granted.
>>
>>77724853
He's probably seen a few hoaxes in his days.
>>
>>77725002
Have there been Hellboy stories where it was all a hoax in the end? I'd imagine that they had investigate a good number of those but the stories never tell about them. I think that would be an interesting change of pace.

No disrespect intended but she just looks like an old woman, not a resurrected Egyptian mummy.

If there's something I've missed and she actually now IS just an old woman, I apologise.
>>
>>77725180
No offense taken. I might not have taken it far enough. But I do think that that she looks mostly like a really wrinkly old lady so that was what I pretty much went with. I did look at other people's take on her but in the end it might have been me not taking it far enough.

Is A Christmas Underground in any of the Library Editions?
>>
>>77725162
Not that I can remember, but now I think there should be one.
>>
>>77725313
It's in Library Edition Volume 2.
>>
>>77725180

I take it you've never seen Ardath Bay, then?
>>
>>77725373
nice. thanks anon
>>
>>77725388
It's the only Library Edition I own, so I checked my actual physical copy.
>>
>>77725310
Cool man, decent drawing, though!
>>77725387
I don't know who that is.....
>>
>>77725533
so why are you sometimes vollsticks and sometimes vollstix? or is it multiple people?
>>
>>77725481
i just ordered the first 3 volumes and don't really plan on getting the rest since there's no more mignola art. glad to know i got that story
>>
>>77725533
Supposed to be Ardath Bey. Aka Boris Karloff from The Mummy.
>>
>>77725574
I'm pretty sure more of his art shows up in other volumes but not that much of it. Volume 6 has the work he did in The Bride of Hell and Others from what I understand. And In the Chapel of Moloch should be in another volume. But If you are looking for Mignola only then yeah, I think you're good.
>>
>>77725559
It's all me, just depends on how lazy I'm feeling. Since I (apparently) am such a huge hipster shitposter with an "effeminate" writing style (whatever THAT means), you should be able to recognise me whether it's sticks or stix, Anon.
>>77725623
Oh, okay. The old, good Mummy or the shitty Brendan Fraser efforts?! Thanks for the info, though, Anon.
>>77724691
He's inking himself, yeah?
>>
>>77725759
It's the classic one from the 30's. I've been meaning to give those classic Hammer films a watch. I've only seen the Bela Lugosi Dracula one.

I believe I read that his father is inking him.
>>
>>77725708
yeah i'm aware, i torrented the rest. not really worth it to shell out another 130 bucks just for a couple stories, fegredo is fine but i'm not a fan of corben's
>>
>>77717531
Passing Bat helps the plot along by questioning Gruagach. Ever so helpful to the storytelling.
>>
>>77725832
I recommend The Black Cat.
Boris Karloff is pretty handsome in that one too.
>>
>>77726004
I might give it a look. I believe I've seen a review of it some time ago. I should probably take care of Frankenstein, The Mummy, Wolf-Man and perhaps the Invislbe Man first. Maybe The Creature from the Black Lagoon.

Hellboy's sister is a Draenei?
>>
>>77726328
The horns do look alike.
>>
>>77726385
Pretty close rather, but they don't seem to curl as much.
>>
>>77726385
Mmm. Does she get lewd?

>>77726466
I guess this is the closest with the whole /ss/ vibe besides her laying on the ground later.

Whenever there's a storytime of Midnight Circus there's always a few people waifu-ing over Gamori

>>77725759

>>77726524
Wait. Ain't dat hellboys sister?

>>77726524
damn, that Dave Stewart colouring. Really nice difference between the real world and the fantasy one. Reminded me of the two artstyles in BPRD 1947 (Ba and Moon are so wonderful)

It sure is.

That's . . . kinda hot.

The Draenei/Eredar pretty much are the demons of the Warcraft universe. Suppose there's only a certain number of ways you can draw smoking hot chicks with horns and hooves.
>>
>>77726656
I think we can also attribute some of the effect to the washes and inks of Fegredo who is also really great. Probably my favorite Hellboy artist after Mignola.

Long storytime is really LONG. Thanks OP for this! Right on time for motivating this anon before going out for the day.
>>
>>77727650
I love that Hellboy stories usually go for the easiest solution. Either that or just beating the crap out of it.
>>
Is Hellboy one of the most likable protagonists ever created?

I want him to be my brother, dad, best friend or husband and would appreciate him all the same.
>>
>>77728120
There's a reason it's said that you can cross him over with anything.
His character is very... universal is probably the wrong word, but his struggle is very applicable. In the end he is just simply a nice guy who is trying to carve out his own way in life while everyone else in the world seems to think they have to tell him what to do.

While this is being posted, I want to let you guys know that these storytimes got me into Hellboy and have led me to buy every main Hellboy story, plus a few BRPD bits. Thanks a bunch.

Considering how universally acclaimed Hellboy is, why are the sales numbers so low ;___; I know that a lot of the fanbase tradewaits, but it's still sad.

(Yes, I realize it's basically impossible to jump into BPRD/Abe right now without reading everything else. And Abe's writing isn't quite as good as everything else. But Hellboy should still be doing better.)

Well, turkey's the main thing, but you know, it's like a Christmas dinner. You've got that main thing, like a turkey or a ham or a goose, but you've gotta have sides and stuff, and a dessert, and other people will bring food too if they're visiting for dinner.

In our case it's gonna be turkey, biscuits (the flaky dinner kind, mashed potatoes, gravy, two kinds of stuffing, pumpkin pie, and cinnamon cookies (which I believe you call biscuits).

Daaamn.
I love how this comic consistently gives me an underlying sense of dread. Like, you REALLY shouldn't be there.
And messing with a child? That's just low, half-demon or not. But then we ARE talking about hell's pawns.
Thanks a ton!
>>
>>77725832
Here's a cool bit of comics trivia (if you didn't know it): Bela Lugosi was Hugo Pratt's cousin (?) or cousin once-removed--anyway they were related.

You have any info on Paolo Rivera's father? Industry vet, something like that? Cheers for info, Anon.
>>
>>77731503
All I know is that he has been inking Rivera's stuff quite a lot from what I can remember.
>>
>>77731503
And I didn't know that. That's pretty cool.
>>
>>77731110
I hope we'll see more Bruttenholm stories, he's great. I love the dynamic between him and Hellboy.
>>
>>77726614
I know I can, totally, Anon, but thanks for the kind words, it means a lot. I was just kind of shocked at the last shelf thread how many Anon's were ripping the shit out of me (tho' a few came to my defence). Yeah, I know 4chan ain't a hugbox but since coming on here in 2010 I had never, in all that time PUT TOGETHER, experienced as many attacks as I did in that shelf thread. I'm a grown-ass man so I DID ignore 'em but some people on here just ALWAYS want a fight. Hahah I sound like a right boo-hoo!
>>77732841
Cheers. He didn't ink his earliest Spideystuff, though, did he?
>>77732930
Yeah I hoped you'd enjoy it! It's easily googled, in fact I think I might've read it on Lugosi's wikipedia entry, can't quite remember.
>>
>>77733102
I'm pretty sure his father was inking his Spock stuff but I'm not so sure about his earlier stuff.
>>
>>77710855
Damnit man, I wanna know what Hellboy's doing in Hell!

World has gone to shit, the Apocalypse is basically happening, Abe's fucked, Liz has gone Super Saiyan...but at least Hellboy is awesome. Really pulling for that guy.

Yes, but some stories are meant to arc towards an overarching resolution from story to story. These are not that type of story, you cannot say they go 'nowhere'.
