Review by regularguy5mb
Hellboy and monster fighting luchadors? YES! Two of my favorite things come together in the same book as Hellboy finds himself fighting monsters in Mexico and lamenting the loss of a friend by getting drunk and fighting as a luchador (masked wrestler for the uninformed).Mignola cites Universal horror movies and El Santo as his influences (having never seen any El Santo, just liking the idea of them), and it's a beautiful thing.This book is just fun. One thing I love about Hellboy is how the story can go from zany monster fights to poignant moments of reflection with well done ghost stories. Hellboy walks a fine line between the land of the living and the land of the dead, and that always leads to some interesting moments with Hellboy talking to ghosts he doesn't realize are ghosts.
