It had to happen! Because you demanded it! Hellboy and the gang go to the fiery pits of HELL! How did they get there anyway? ALSO, our B.P.R.D. heroes’ search for Sasquatch continues! But what does Rasputin have to do with all this? OOOOH! Is he just trying to scare us? You WILL find out in this exciting issue!!!

* Highly recommended by Franco’s mom.

Oh, Hellboy is just so gosh darned cute. There's a sentence I never thought I'd type, but there you have it. Art Baltazar and Franco have rendered Hellboy and company to the point of precociousness with this series.

This time around l'il Liz gets some time in the spotlight alongside HB, first with some banana pancakes (is that a thing in the grownup version, by any chance?), and then when the gang gets sent to Hades by l'il Baba Yaga.

Oh yeah, this is Baba's time to shine, too. Throw in those adorably tiny Hellboy hellspawn and you might have the cutest issue of Itty Bitty yet.

There are only two issues left now, and I can only imagine where they intend to go with the kiddified antics. My familiarity with Mignola's creation is sorely lacking, I find, as it feels like I'm missing out on some of the winks and nods that the writers are coming up with for this mini-series.

As a bonus this time around, there is some fan art included in the letters section from a Denmark reader. Neat stuff, and considerably less controversial than the last collection of artwork I saw from Danish cartoonists.
