Horror News Network’s Comic Awards 2019: Best One-Shot

Horror News Network is proud to present Mike Mignola, Duncan Fegredo, and Dave Stewart with the award for Best One-Shot of the Year for Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.: The Beast of Vargu.

As is the case with any of the Mignola-verse ongoing titles, mini-series, or one-shots, The Beast of Vargu delivers superb artwork, a determined, hard-boiled protagonist, and a lesson in folklore and myth.  This tale featuring Hellboy in one of his early solo adventures portrays an earnest, caring version of the character who finds himself in over his head with an enormous beast, with little support from the B.P.R.D. office in Fairfield, Connecticut.  As usual, Hellboy uses his brawn and charm to appeal to some more localized assistance, and Mignola, Fegredo, and Stewart deliver an engaging yarn that a seasoned reader as well as a newcomer to the character (or comics in general) will enjoy.

Although Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.: The Beast of Vargu was released in the summer months, due to the nature of one-shot specials, it may still be on the shelf  at your local comic book shop.  A digital version of Beast of Vargu is currently available through Dark Horse Comics.
