But when The Bureau of Paranormal Research & Defense dispatches a team of

dimension of ghosts, monsters, and feudal mayhem. Now, while pyrokinetic Liz
Sherman and fishboy Abe Sapien battle one very pissed-off dragon, a lost and

Hellboy will have to battle harpies, hellhounds, a giant werewolf, and even the
