    Giant Robot Hellboy is why we read comics. Mike Mignola has crafted a story that lovingly pays tribute to classic monster movies and 70s espionage action, while also featuring some amazing connectivity to his own franchise. Series artist Duncan Fegredo is clearly having a blast with this series. Fegredo is already one of the best Hellboy artists of all time but here he creates an entire new wing in his Hall of Fame exhibition for the franchise, bringing his trademark immaculate detail to a type of story that would have seemed impossible for Hellboy. To make it even better, it’s a great one.

    Mignola continues to surprise with this Hellboy story where he not only makes references to the kaiju and mecha genre, but also involves a theme of cosmic horror.

    Duncan Fregedo creates the perfect atmosphere of terror, mystery and action for this story that places Hellboy in a complex situation and leaves him in a vulnerable state, raising the tone of mysteries with his art so organic and detailed.

    Giant Robot Hellboy is not only an amazing pulp romp where giant monsters clash in spectacularly cinematic fashion, but it also serves as a must-read for anyone who’s been keeping up with the ever-expanding lore of the Hellboy universe.

    This is another standout entry into the modern mythology that Mike Mignola is crafting and is destined to stand alongside Lovecraft and Howard’s for generations to come.

    Monkeys Fighting Robots

    Giant Robot Hellboy is a ton of fun, but it’s also so much more than that. It delivers more colossal cage matches than you’d dare hope, while slowly teasing out themes and connections to a much bigger story.

    Forget all the kaiju movies and TV shows out there: Giant Robot Hellboy is the best way to enjoy big monster action. This is a monster book with highly detailed art that’ll awaken your inner child and put a big smile on your face.

    The Super Powered Fancast

    The Story: An entertaining follow up to the first issue. There is non-stop action throughout the issue. I continue to enjoy the world of this story and how action packed the story is. I look forward to seeing where this story goes next and how it will end.

    The Art: Fegredo delivers some beautiful art in the issue. The visuals are fun, exciting and filled with great action.

    The Fandom Post

    Giant Robot Hellboy is delivering exactly what I expected – and wanted – from it while being pretty fun and creative. The action is where it’s at its strongest and there are so many fun visual moments here and watching a giant robot Hellboy is exactly as delightfully silly as you’d expect. Jian’s storyline feels like it could lead to something bigger – or already played out elsewhere – but just feeling that this is part of something larger is enjoyable even if it doesn’t capitalize on it here. What we get is what the title delivers and a bit more, making it thoroughly enjoyable.

    Multiversity Comics

    “Giant Robot Hellboy” #2 is a comic of immense weight and scale, but without a clear direction or objective it often finds itself shambling forward without consequence and propped purely on the talent of its byline.
