CBR Review: Hellboy: Double Feature of Evil #1

I recently reviewed Hellboy: Double Feature of Evil #1 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "The lead story has Hellboy investigating a house that makes its owner kill people. The pacing is slow and meticulous, allowing for Corben’s art to raise the tension. It’s a story of mood, contrasting the seeming normalcy of the owner with the absurdity of his problem. Corben is very good at making ‘normal’ people look creepy or abnormal. The shift is shown on a page and handled through some fantastic body language. Of course, he turns on Hellboy, but how different he is visually before and after is fantastic. It’s as if being in the house really does change the man."
