    I almost thought this one wouldn't ever see the light of day.

    Well, it was originally solicited for March 30th, 2022, but now looks like it's suppose to be released on June 28, 2023.

    And the reason for the delay:

    It would appear that she is doing better now, which is nice to see.

    Story wise this was pretty decent, your typical Hellboy smash em' up where he get's called in for something simple and see's it's something weirder and then he punches it into submission...but in places the art was pretty unfinished looking. I've read that Sampson had cancer, hence the delay, so I don't want to be too critical but Hellboy just looked really doughy and misshapen. The human characters were all beautifully done and the Were-Tiger was decent but Hellboy's face lacked any sense of depth or texture and his facial hair looked like when you would scribble mustaches on pictures of people in the newspaper with a pen when you were a kid. And the dichotomy between just how well the other characters were and how amateurish Hellboy looked made it all the worse. It almost looks like it was done by two different people.

    I finally got a copy after it wasn't sent to my LCBS when it came out. It was alright. I agree with TWG on the art.
    Does Virginia Payne join the BPRD later?

    It's been a while since we had a great Hellboy book with superior art.
