    A fun and intriguing winter romp that makes itself fit in the larger Hellboy story while still being a great standalone tale.

    The Story: Smith crafts a fun, entertaining and thrilling story in this issue. It is classic Hellboy in tone and lore with great action and thrills. I love visiting the world of these characters and this story has some great callbacks to other adventures and makes me want to see more Hellboy stories in the future.

    The Art: Smith’s art is as engaging and thrilling as the story. There are some great visual moments with the action and I found myself immersed in the world of the story through the art.

    When it comes to keeping fans appetite whetted, Dark Horse has to be one of the best companies around. Their one-shots and mini-series seem to have a point to make or a step in the characters journey, unlike other companies with a pointless six part run that goes nowhere! This book is a true winter solstice for Hellboy fans!

    Major Spoilers

    While Hellboy Winter Special: The Yule Cat is a good-looking comic and there are some fun moments to be had, this issue just didn’t have enough meat on its bones. It honestly read more like a backup story that you’d find in a collector’s edition of something else. This is a shame because the idea of Hellboy tracking down and investigating a giant cat sounded like a really cool thing.
