Synopsis: Hellboy is on a mission in Mexico 1982. They tumble on a cottage which brings memories of Hellboy’s past back in 1956. A group of quite silent wrestlers’ve got a vison from Virgin Mary and they started to fight with Hellboy against demonic vampires.
Comment: The story was pretty graphical and there’s not much to talk about. Many things happened briefly because of short telling space. I liked a lot the frame story, since it did not explain anything what happened before; where Hellboy and insides of trunk were coming from. The action was loaded in the end of the story and the very end was left open as well. Graphically story was brilliant. If the script was not that memorable, the demon and his vampires were a lot. See also the sequel for the story, Hellboy: “House of the Living Dead”.
Extra: This story is called as Hellboy: “Camazotz” on Corben’s own web site.
