This one took me a while to get into, and, if I were being honest, I wasn't totally sure what the hell was happening for the first half. I understand that the Baba Yaga is pissed about her eye and wants revenge on Hellboy, but, beyond that, I wasn't entirely sure who was who and why things were happening. However, I dug the epic sense of coming confrontation, like the big terror is still to go down. Also, with this collection and maybe the previous one, this series may be slipping from horror into fantasy. It's not so much monsters, mystics and the living dead. It's making our world seem like a holy land of gods, spirits, demons and witches. SHIT'S GONNA GET GNAR.
