Von Jan-niklas Bersenkowitsch VINE-PRODUKTTESTER
Format:Taschenbuch
Bis auf zwei, wurden alle Geschichten in diesem Band weiterhin von Mike Mignola gezeichnet. Dabei bieten sie gewohnt gute Unterhaltung, zeigen jedoch auch Freude zum Experiment, wie man an der Titelgeschichte "The Troll Witch" (ein bewegendes Märchen, mit sehr düsteren Ton) und "The Ghoul" (ein interessantes Experiment, in der Mignola seine Begeisterung für die Sprache von William Shakespeare zum Ausdruck bringt) und deuten auch langsam an, was bis zum Jahre 2012 lange Zeit Programm sein sollte: Hellboy wird von anderen Zeichnern gezeichnet, etwas wovon Mignola früher nie wissen wollte (sieht man von der kleinen Geschichte "Hellboy/Ghost" einmal ab), aber auf Grund seiner damals immer mehr zunehmenden Pflichten als Autor scheinbar wohl unumgänglich war.

Die Gastzeichner in diesem Band sind dabei P. Craig Russel, der mit "The Vampire of Prag Prag" eine unterhaltsame, soll heißen urkomische Hellboygeschichte zu Papier bringt und Richard Corben, der den Zweiteiler "Makoma" zeichnet.

Makoma.

Ehe der Rezensent auf die Geschichte an sich eingehen möchte, sollten wir vielleicht noch einmal kurz bei den Zeichnungen Corbens verweilen. Sieht man Duncan Fegredo ab, der die letzten drei Hellboy-Miniserien zeichnete, hat wohl kein anderer Gastzeichner so viele Seiten gezeichnet wie er und mit "Makoma" feierte er seinen Einstand, zeichnete Hellboy zwar auch etwas gedrungener, nichtsdestotrotz jedoch für all seine Fans deutlich erkennbar. Und auch seine restlichen Zeichnungen weisen einen erdigen, bodenständigen Stil auf, der so gut zur sandigen Kulisse Afrikas passt und es vor den Augen des Lesers greifbar und auf eine unbestimmte Art und Weise "schön" macht.

Nun zur eigentlichen Geschichte.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Depending on your Poison 14. Oktober 2007
Von TorridlyBoredShopper - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
The 7th installation in the Hellboy graphic novel releases is something good to acquire, BUT acquiring it depends on what you want from your Hellboy.

First and foremost, the stories herein are mostly collected tales from fragmented places. The Troll Witch, The Hydra and the Lion, Doctor Carps Experiment, and The Ghoul are pieces from the "Dark Horse Book(s) of the..." (Witchcraft, Monsters, Hauntings, and The Dead respectively). These range from five to eight pages depending, and all of them have something to offer. The best piece in the book HAS to be The Troll Witch, and I personally liked Doctor Carp as well. The Ghoul is a Shakespeare adaptation and the Hydra and the Lion is, as Mignola admits in its forward, a bit odd. If you want these and don't want to pick up all of those books, then this is a good way to do it.

Second, there is some random stuff here and some new stuff BUT some of it isn't the best stuff out there.
The Penanggalan is an older story that came out of a Wizard magazine release, and covers a beast spawned from Malaysian folklore. It is a big odd but also a bit predictable, covering ground that Hellboy covered back in 2004. The Vampire of Prague is unique to this series but isn't really one of my favorites. P. Craig Russell did the artwork and, to be frank, it looks a bit rudimentary. When reading Hellboy I guess I've been spoiled and I want Mignola to cover every aspect. The story is small, good to read but normal, and Mignola could have sealed it for me and didn't. I guess that's something that is up to individual tastes.
And the last is Makoma, the longest addition to the book by far, covering some of Hellboy's younger years when he was in Africa. I liked the story and liked the quest artwork of Richard Corben, with everything clicking in that folklore sense that Hellboy often delivers. There's a mixture of Mignola there, too, and that made it worth a read.

And the extras - little etchings of characters and rudimentary cover art - don't really make me want to invest in Graphic Novels. I DO enjoy the forwards that come before each story, telling where the ale came from and how people became involved therein. Mignola is nothing if not a storyteller and this aspect adds to the read.

All that said, I enjoyed the series and thought people would enjoy it as well depending on what they want. If you missed the Dark Horse Book of series then there's a lot of tales here that are interesting and this format is a lot cheaper to acquire. The additions are good but are not necessary in pushing out a storyline and the book, on the whole, is just fragmented tales that cover some of Hellboy's adventures.
Keep that in mind before purchasing.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good, but not Hellboy's best 1. Oktober 2007
Von CB - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I always await the new Hellboy volume with anxious anticipation, and this one was no exception. "The Troll Witch and Others" is a collection of Hellboy short tales and is generally good, but with a few disappointments; it's not the best volume in the series, to be sure.

There are a number of triumphs in this volume: the title story, "The Troll Witch," a retelling of a Norwegian folktale, is a touching as it is chilling; and the steampunk-tinged haunted house tale, "Dr. Carp's Experiment," is beautifully bizarre. And "Makoma," an African folktale retold masterfully by Mignola and drawn by both Mignola and Richard Corben, is humorous and weighty at the same time.

Others, however, don't work so well. "The Hydra and the Lion," by Mignola's own admission, is just plain bizarre, and "The Vampire of Prague," a tale written by Mignola and drawn by P. Craig Russell lacks the gravitas of the other stories. Mignola notes that he gave Russell a lot of leeway in drawing and pacing this story, and it shows: it's far too slapstick and silly to be a real, classic Hellboy yarn and Russell's artistic stylings just don't fit. Overall, however, this is a good volume of Hellboy tales, although not the best by far. Worth it for Hellboy fans.

Five of these are drawn by Mignola and two are not. The stories are all Mignola, though.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Review of Mignola's Hellboy, Volume VII 23. Juni 2010
Von Ryan Mease - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
The stories in this collections are a bit too fragmented for my tastes. All expect the last story are short, energetic tales that end with a battle between Hellboy and some monster. I couldn't extract a feeling of sympathy from or for the characters, and so I had a hard time finding entertainment in these pages. The final story, which has a longer, more interested plot, was my favorite.

I do appreciated Mignola's forwards to the stories. It's interesting to consider the sources of his inspiration.
4.0 von 5 Sternen The Troll Witch 18. April 2012
Von jonathan briggs - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This volume marks a transition in the Hellboy series as Mike Mignola laid down his pencils and inks and turned the book over to other artists, setting off fanboy wailing that can be heard to this day. In fact, I'm wailing as I type this, and the people in the desks around me are staring. But Mignola, still at the writing helm of the book, brought in more-than-able replacements in P. Craig Russell, Richard Corben and later Duncan Fegredo. "Troll Witch" is a collection of scraps and one-offs, few of consequence or even much substance. They're larky little experiments that give Mignola a chance to riff on the multicultural folklore he loves so much. Mostly it works like this: Hellboy visits a faraway locale, learns a little bit about the hometown spook, then gets his ass kicked before somehow managing to triumph in the last couple of panels. Hellboy has a lot in common with Ash the Stud from the Evil Dead movies: He's supremely confident but not equally competent. He visits Malaysia for a run-in with the Penanggalan, a blood-drinking noggin that took flight with a tail of intestines when a woman got so startled she accidentally kicked her own head off. "That might be the stupidest thing I've ever heard," sez Hellboy, a hulking red demon with a ponytail and soulpatch, who wears shorts and a trenchcoat and carries a rosary and likes to smoke cheroots and eat giant stacks of pancakes. He goes to Prague for a smackdown with a rather pitiful little vampire. He socks it out with a hydra in Alaska. Norway's Troll Witch captured the book's title, but the collection's real showpiece is "Makoma," the first Mignola/Corben collaboration, a nerd's dream team pairing that's always guaranteed to produce something special. An encounter with a talkative mummy at the New York City Explorers Club launches a romp thru African mythology that includes elemental giants, ant-men, a city of singing corpses, a fire demon and a seven-headed dragon. Corben gets to draw a small zoo's worth of monstrous beasties for Hellboy to bonk on the head. Mignola notes ruefully that "Richard got to do the fun stuff." This anthology reads like there was plenty of fun to go around during Mignola's playful exploration in other cultures' sandboxes.
