Hellboy, Vol. 1: Seed of Destruction - John Byrne, Mike Mignola Star Rating Art: 4 Stars
Star Rating Story: 3 Stars

Self purchase for my Kindle.

First Impression: A bit of a disappointment.

I was really hoping I’d like this series since I liked Hellboy: Midnight Circus (I got as an ARC from Netgalley) so much.

Characters: The sorcerer who originally brought hellboy into being is a very wordy person. Also, very boring and uninteresting. Hellboy- he rocks, has some great lines.

Chapter one- a little on the confusing side at first until you see where it is going. Wasn’t thrilled with first chapter (3 Stars) Second chapter things are starting to look better (4 Stars). Chapter three goes downhill again as the stupid sorcerer rambles on and on. I can’t read it it’s so annoying. (2 Stars-) Chapter four- more ramblings from the sorcerer. 3 Stars

I did go ahead and purchase volume 2 in the series because I suspect it gets better. Now that the introduction and history crap is out of the way, I think I’ll like it more. But if Volume 2 isn’t a lot better, I may have to give up on the series.
