After a disastrous séance at the Chesbro House, Hellboy finds himself battling a giant ghost prepared to kill everyone in the room. After the spirit wreaks havoc and causes the death of the medium, Hellboy discovers the dark truth behind what happened to Sarah Chesbro and what caused the curse that stalks the family.
After discovering the true source of the evil, Hellboy must find the final heir who is under the influence of both his greed and the spirit of the man responsible for the curse. Hellboy will find himself in the battle of his life to prevent an unholy terror from being unleashed on the world.
The Story: Mignola and Golden craft an incredibly fun and exciting conclusion in this issue. The story is filled with great action, adventure and humor throughout. The plot is impressive and everything in the story from the dialogue to the story progression makes me long for more. I would love to see more stories like this one because it reminds me why I love the character of Hellboy so much.
The Art: Shawn McManus does a beautiful job with the art in this issue. The visuals are lively and exciting and the action is fantastic.
