worth watching
27 September 2012 | by (Peru) – See all my reviews

Like the title suggest, this little motion-comic is basically a retelling of first scenes of the second live-action Hellboy film (Which I liked a lot)

While the result isn't as great as the other works directed by Brooke Burgess (Particularly his great web series, "Broken Saints") or visually impressive as the animation sequence included at the beginning of "Hellboy II: The Golden Army", I consider this "Prologue" to be a reasonably well made motion-comic, well narrated, with very good art and a great atmosphere.

A worth-watching addition to the "Hellboy" franchise.
