To Hell and Back

It's funny how many comics are being, or have been, turned into movies. One of my favourite comics is Hellboy by Mike Mignola which is currently being made into its second movie. (Check out Neil Gaiman's blog for more details).
The comic follows Hellboy and his teammates as they investigate supernatural happenings around the world.
Mignola has a great eye for mythology, and incorporating it into his stories, as well as an expressive style of art. Combined these two talents make Hellboy a great read, with lots of interesting references to fairy stories, legends and myths.
This series may not be to every one's taste, but for those willing to give it a go you may find it quite enjoyable.
