ah so this one is called a compendium. i got the second one. it contains the box full of evil, conquerer worm, third wish and island all in color. sadly no more are on the market right now.

2 compendiums = 100 euros :/ worth it :D

 

on a sidenote: conquerer worm is shitty translated, the german transcript calls it more like winner worm, while the poe-verse is usually translated closer to the english meaning.

 

i love the comics. also i must say that the movies did a really good job, but the atmoshpere of the books is something special.

As much as I like them, I have always felt there was something off with the tone of the Hellboy movies.

It'd be very hard to capture the haunting tone that runs through the original Mignola-run on Hellboy.

The movies are more just fun romps, for a mass-audience.

The body is there, but not the spirit that animates the Mignola comics as being amongst the best comics ever written.
