Exquisite ‘Corpse': Why The Best ‘Hellboy’ Short Story Is A Perfect Comic Book [Fantasy Week]

Hellboy: The Corpse, Mike Mignola

Hellboy: The Corpse is a perfect comic book.

Originally published in two-page installments back in 1995, it's of the best stories in Mike Mignola's considerable catalogue, and still stands over 20 years later as the single greatest Hellboy short. It's a great introduction to Hellboy and his world, action packed and full of a moody atmosphere that's spooky without being scary, built on the foundation of half-remembered folktales and Jack Kirby monster comics; but more than that, it's an incredible example of craftsmanship and accessibility.

And it all starts with Hellboy fighting a baby.

ogrdu-jahad-feat

When thinking about favorite monsters, I wanted to go to one of the biggest, most uncontrollable and terrifying concepts that have ever hit the comics page. Dinosaurs and demons are all well and good, but they offer a threat that doesn’t dig deep beneath the skin. What really frightens me is unknown, unseen terror that exists in fugue; horrors like the Ogdru Jahad, creatures we've seen only briefly in Mike Mignola-created books including Hellboy and B.P.R.D..

Before there were heroes, there were monsters. Or at least that's how the story of Marvel Comics goes, with the Jack Kirby-driven success of the publisher's monster comics leading to a superheroic renaissance in the early 1960s.

The Monsters Unleashed event, which launches with Monsters Unleashed #1 on January 18 2017, promises to bring back those monsters of primordial Marvel and pit them against the current crop of superheroes.

But wait, you may be asking, didn't Hellboy die and go to Hell? Yes, and unlike so many other comic book heroes, he remains dead. But Hellboy's story was never very linear, and there are still adventures from his long life that we don't yet know about.
