On the frozen shores of Sweden, lightning strikes from a clear sky. The skeleton of a huge man is revealed, its fingers clutched around the handle of an iron hammer. No one who comes to see this marvel from Norse mythology can lift it -- no one but Hellboy, who lifts the hammer just in time for lightning to strike again, welding it to his hand and leading him towards a bizarre series of visions and encounters. Chris Golden, author of the popular Hellboy: The Lost Army novel, makes his return to the character in a novel illustrated by Mike Mignola, award-winning creator of Hellboy and production designer of Disney's summer blockbuster, Atlantis.

Hellboy has always been one of my favorites and in the absence of Mignola's stellar comics, the illustrated novels fill the void quite nicely!
This book is written by Christopher Golden (who had written other Hellboy novels) with spot illustrations by Mignola! What happens when a giant skeleton is found washed up on a beach with a giant hammer in its bony clutches? And why is Hellboy the only one who can lift the hammer?
Beats me but I'm going to find out tonight when I crack this baby open!
