Hellboy returns to his birthplace in the mortal world to be greeted by sounds of thunder, and giants...

Dylan Dog vs. Hellboy: A Study of Pulp and Pop Pastiche

Horror stories and Mignola's cultural project with Hellboy, at home and abroad. If Hellboy is the all-American, indestructible demon with the Right Hand of Doom, then Dylan Dog is his handsome, eccentric, phobic (and horny) European cousin, with a penchant for the clarinet.
