Jason Pearson makes his grand return to Dark Horse with a story about firestarter Liz Sherman. Pearson writes and draws half this issue, plus provides the cover. John Cassaday continues his classic Lobster Johnson serial, while Mark Ricketts (Nowheresville) and Eric Wight (Art Director for Buffy Animated) reduce special agent Kate Corrigan to tears and temper tantrums at the hands of her dead mother. Finally, Randy Stradley and Seung Kim, artist from the Jackie Chan animated show, place Hellboy himself in a demonic hot spring.
This eclectic mix of stories about the World's Greatest Paranormal Detective and his friends and foes continues, driven by some of the most interesting mainstream and up-and-coming artists in comics.
