Hellboy: House of the Living Dead

Hellboy: House of the Living Dead (Hellboy - Richard Corben, Mike Mignola This was another good Hellboy story. I just wish it had been a bit longer. The story is real simple: Hellboy is sent to Mexico in the 50s to investigate a case, and he disappears for a few months. Years later, we learn the story. It is a story where he meets a local Dr. Frankenstein, a Wolfman, vampires, and a damsel in distress. And all at a time when he is working as luchador (wrestler) for hire. The comic draws on various elements: the old Mexican wrestler movies, like those of El Santo (some of which I watched in my youth by the way, the Mexican wrestling traditions, and the Universal classic monsters, but Mignola gives them a twist of his own. It is a pretty good tale, and I read it pretty fast. I only wish it would have lasted just a tad longer. But it was a good read, and one I think fans of Hellboy will like.
