I had no idea what to expect going into this, and it absolutely blew my mind. I loved it, and I can say that as soon as my bank account allows it, I'll be buying up the whole series at once and binge reading.
Everything from the art to the story to the dialogue was smooth, fast-paced, and unexpected. It's such an ingenious story and captured my interest completely. All three major characters, Hellboy, Liz, and Abe, were unique and fully three-dimensional. The story filled in enough backstory to give a good idea of who and what each was, while still leaving it open enough for a good mystery.
I absolutely loved the art, as well. It came right off the page and into my imagination. It's one of my favorite art styles that I've seen and I'd read the books just for it. The fact that it's so full of vibrant colors definitely helped.
I do want to watch the Hellboy movie at some point (it's on Netflix now) but I can't decide if I want to read some more of the graphic novels first. If you haven't read this series, I really recommend it to everyone, particularly those fond of fantasy and urban fantasy. Here's a link to goodreads so you can add it your shelf.
