Cover for Hellboy Omnibus Vol. 4: Hellboy in Hell by Mike Mignola

Title: Hellboy Omnibus Vol. 4: Hellboy in Hell

Author: Mike Mignola

Series: Hellboy in Hell #1-2

Pages: 288

4 stars out of five
4 stars – It was really good

Hellboy has been cast into Hell, where he meets some familiar faces who continue to reveal new secrets about his origins. Hellboy has forever changed Hell and it will never be the same. 

This was a sad and yet powerful ending to Hellboy’s story. He went out with a bang saving the world and now he is in Hell finding new truths about his history. We see how much the residents of Hell fear his return but Hellboy finally uses this time to find some peace. Yes, he still has a few battles, but nothing like his time on earth. He still makes huge changes to the realm of Hell, even while trying to stay out of the war. 

This ending is not the powerful all out battle I was expecting, we don’t get to see Hellboy let loose as a demon, instead it was a somber and quiet ending. Don’t get me wrong I still really loved how Mignola ended his story, but it was surprising. Maybe now Hellboy can finally have some peace.
