The hero: forty years after being rescued from Axis powers at the end of World War II, he's a top field agent for the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense. He questions the unknown, then beats it into submission. And he's a blood-red, cloven-hoofed demon with a tail and a stone right hand. The mystery: Around 525 BC, a Persian army fifty thousand strong vanished from the face of the earth while crossing the Egyptian desert. Two millennia later, amid mounting hostilities between Libya and joint allied forces, a group of British archeologists has met the same fate, disappearing without trace along the edge of the Great Sand Sea. From the legendary oasis of Ammon, the dead warn Hellboy and his companions: leave now or die. Digging deeper beneath the sands of the Sahara, the paranormal investigation team find a danger far greater than they bargained for. In the immortal sorceror Hazred, has Hellboy found a foe beyond even his supernatural powers?

Review:

Hellboy creator Mike Mignola wanted to take his comic book creation, the world's greatest paranormal investigator, into different territory. So he hooked up with Christopher Golden, author of Of Saints and Shadows to write a prose novel featuring Hellboy. The result is this 208-page story about a team of archeologists who head toward the Great Sand Sea near Libya to exhume evidence of a missing army of 50,000 men that disappeared in 525 B.C. When the archeologists go missing, the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense sends Hellboy to investigate. This edition features 68 black and white illustrations by Mignola.
