It's Hellboy and Ghost in one comic.
Ghost/Hellboy Special - Mike Mignola

Do I really need explain the appeal for me?   I didn't think so.   Plus, I pretty much just love everything Hellboy...   Because, bless his soul, he's been raised by nazis and also kicks their asses on a regular basis.   He's kinda swoon-y in a non-sexual, but I love that fact about you way for me. 

 

So, yeah, love pretty much everything Hellboy.   Although I heard the new movie blew so I skipped in in theater and hope it's not as bas as it seems when it comes time to stream it...

Cold Moon Over Babylon
Cold Moon Over Babylon (Valancourt 20th Century Classics) - Michael McDowell,Mike Mignola

Can Michael McDowell write a bad horror story? I don´t know yet, because Cold Moon Over Babylon, my third book by this author, has been excellent … truly excellent, in the most terrifying kind of way. I had to look numerous times over my own shoulder, because I got the impression that someone (or something) was standing there, lurking over my shoulder. I´m not afraid to admit it, this novel freaked me out. And I loved every second of it.

 

What really works for me in a McDowell book is his writing. He knows how to create atmosphere in his stories. The dense and dark pine trees, the deep and muddy waters of the river or the looming sphere of the moon – the most ordinary objects get turned into something menacing. And how he matter-of-factly turns up the gore and the scariness is highly entertaining. I´m already looking forward to my next McDowell.

 

I have read this book for Halloween bingo. It qualifies for Southern Gothic, Slasher Tales, Ghost Stories, Terror in a Small Town, Genre: Horror. I call the square Southern Gothic.

This was an intense, scary, creepy, eery and excellent book to kick off the official start of Halloween book bingo 2018.

 

I fear, though, falling asleep tonight might be a difficult task.

This book is so creepy ... BT, I don´t think that ordinary store-bought chocolate will be comforting enough. I need stronger stuff, like Madame Pompfrey´s anti-Dementor chocolate.

 

And while reading this book I decided to change the square for this (my initial call was Genre: Horror). This novel is as southern gothic as it possibly can get.

The first chapter, the river, the woods, the atmosphere, that man in the woods ....
