Mike Mignola and fan-favorite artist Duncan Fegredo reunite in this all-new one-shot! This first issue in a new era of Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. sees Mignola and Fegredo send Hellboy to Romania for a pair of tales set in a small village with a centuries-old curse and a man-eating monster which culminate in a sinister puppet show and a demigod's ill-fated dinner.

Puppet Wednesday continues with Hellboy and the Beast of Vargu. Hellboy is left for dead. Having lost a fight with a mulit-generational murderous beast, Hellboy is helped by a gypsy and her daughter who help him to learn the truth is in the telling.
Hellboy creator Mike Mignola is helped by returning great Duncan Fegredo, making this the most Hellboy feeling Hellboy comic in some time. A wonderful little stand alone story.
I give it 9 out of 10 Grahams
