SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL
Think. Why burn down the world when we can be its masters?
That dialogue is a great teaching to all those stories where the bad guys are planning to destroy the world...
...where are you gonna live after that, morons?!!!
Conquer the world, I can understand that (it doesn’t mean that I sympathize with the concept) but destroy it? That’s dumb! Sure, there are many dumb suicide evil guys but still there is not point to destroy a planet if you can better conquer it (but certainly the heck of managing that world after conquering can get even the best goody-doody tyrant to nuts!)
This volume, Wake the Devil, is a direct sequel to the events of the TPB Seed of Destruction, in fact, that previous story ended in such epic cliffhanger that you will certainly need to read this volume at hand. But be advised that hardly this thing ends here. Later you will need to read too: Conqueror Worm and Darkness Calls (I know that I will need to do it!).
Wake the Devil is a hell better reading than the previous TPB, Seed of Destruction. The character developing is still almost non-existent (if it wouldn’t for the movies, I wouldn’t have a clear idea of what to think about characters like Abe Sapien or even I wouldn’t realize how relevant are characters like Liz Sherman). There are some characters (specially from the BPRD) that they are basically cannon fodder where you hardly know their names but not even if they have powers or not before they bite the dust.
However, the dialogues are crafty and smart and a delicious experience to read them.
In this book, you are introduced to Dr. Kate Corrigan (BPRD liaison to enhanced field agents), that even with the limited character developing, you will realize how cool she is and wanting to read more about her.
This book also has an introduction written by nothing less than Alan Moore, an additional epilogue that it was published only in this collected edition (not in the single comic book issues) and even you have priceless comments by Mignola himself revealing how was his initial vision of this second storyarc.
So, if you read Seed of Destruction and you weren’t that impressed, I believe that if you give a chance to this second volume, your opinion about Hellboy comics will be in a better light.
Good Tip for Potential Evil Masterminds: Put a plastic cover to any dang facilities’ self-destruct buttons! (You will thank me later! Have a happy world conquering!)
Too long lost among humans. You have nearly lost yourself... ...turned your back on your own kind... ...and worse... ...you are soaked in their blood.
You had a glorious purpose, but when you denied it you forced me to create your replacement. Now you have no purpose at all... ...and nature hates a purposeless thing.
In this second volume, Wake the Devil, you will learn more about the original purpose for Hellboy, and how he even has denied himself his own “true form” when he started to work for the BPRD.
The most powerful agent of the BPRD can be its own most dangerous menace.
Destiny versus free will.
Also, even the BPRD isn’t aware that they put its trust in a secret enemy, compromising the reliance on its technology and vehicles, and putting at risk the lives of its field agents.
Rasputin, the Mad Monk! Nazis (real ones from WWII, not lame Neo-Nazis)! A Vampire Lord! A Demonic Ancient Goddess! You can’t ask for more threats to fight against!
Hellboy and his teammates from the BPRD will have the hands full on this!

Read information about the authorMike Mignola was born September 16, 1960 in Berkeley, California and grew up in nearby Oakland. His fascination with ghosts and monsters began at an early age (he doesn't remember why) and reading Dracula at age 13 introduced him to Victorian literature and folklore from which he has never recovered.
In 1982, hoping to find a way to draw monsters for a living, he moved to New York City and began working for Marvel Comics, first as a (very terrible) inker and then as an artist on comics like Rocket Raccoon, Alpha Flight and The Hulk. By the late 80s he had begun to develop his signature style (thin lines, clunky shapes and lots of black) and moved onto higher profile commercial projects like Cosmic Odyssey (1988) and Gotham by Gaslight (1989) for DC Comics, and the not-so-commercial Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser (1990) for Marvel. In 1992, he drew the comic book adaptation of the film Bram Stoker's Dracula for Topps Comics.
In 1993, Mike moved to Dark Horse comics and created Hellboy, a half-demon occult detective who may or may not be the Beast of the Apocalypse. While the first story line (Seed of Destruction, 1994) was co-written by John Byrne, Mike has continued writing the series himself. There are, at this moment, 13 Hellboy graphic novel collections (with more on the way), several spin-off titles (B.P.R.D., Lobster Johnson, Abe Sapien and Witchfinder), three anthologies of prose stories, several novels, two animated films and two live-action films staring Ron Perlman. Hellboy has earned numerous comic industry awards and is published in a great many countries.
Mike also created the award-winning comic book The Amazing Screw-on Head and has co-written two novels (Baltimore, or, the Steadfast Tin Soldier and the Vampire and Joe Golem and the Drowning City) with best-selling author Christopher Golden.
Mike worked (very briefly) with Francis Ford Coppola on his film Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992), was a production designer on the Disney film Atlantis: The Lost Empire (2001) and was visual consultant to director Guillermo del Toro on Blade II (2002), Hellboy (2004) and Hellboy II: The Golden Army (2008). He lives somewhere in Southern California with his wife, daughter, a lot of books and a cat.
