Ep. 33: "Hellboy Omnibus Vol. 1" (Seeds of Destruction)

We are trying a new format (on the show and in the notes)! Please let us know your thoughts!

What do Nazis, Rasputin, and re-imaginings of classic religious and mythological imagery have in common? Hellboy Omnibus Vol. 1. We discuss the launch point for Mike Mignola’s Hellboy, the historical context (or lack thereof) for Nazi’s and their alleged obsession with the occult, the legacy of Rasputin, and of course, the tragic hero that is Hellboy.
