Lobster Johnson is on the trail of a Squatch!

His search has led him to the deep woods, and Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. are going to help him the best way they know how! That's right—it’s a camping trip! One thing is for sure: when Liz is around you never need a flashlight, but you might need to bring your own marshmallows!

* The creators of Aw Yeah Comics come to Dark Horse!

*Art Baltazar and Franco reimagine Mike Mignola’s best-loved characters in the style of Tiny Titans and Superman Family Adventures!

The cuteness continues. You have been warned.

The backyard antics of Hellboy and friends persist, with more appearances from sort-of-familiar faces from the BPRD universe. If you didn't check out the first issue, just imagine the cast of Mignola's creation all kiddified. Just think The L'il Rascals if they were mutants and hellspawn. Now you're up to speed.

Anyway, I gotta admit that the novelty has worn off a bit for me. The first issue was fun, but with the attention span of a newspaper comic strip, there's not a lot in the way of story being propelled forward. And with gags being revisited already, I'm actually a little disappointed with this issue.

Am I expected too much from a comic book that is essentially designed to be a fun and irreverent take on Hellboy? Probably, but I just see so much potential with this project and the second issue felt like it kept things in first gear. I have my fingers crossed the third issue kicks it up, they have three more issues slated in this thing and the "someone wears Roger's underwear on their head" gag is played out.
