Hellboy and the B.P.R.D: Night of the Cyclops

Set in the 1960s, the Hellboy one-shot Night of the Cyclops features Hellboy being led to a cursed village in Greece where its inhabitants believe him to be the hero foretold to end their suffering. To do so all Hellboy needs to do is fight a cyclops and stand up to the goddess Aphrodite whose jealousy led to the curse generations ago.

Hellboy and the B.P.R.D: Night of the Cyclops is a simple single-issue story that comic sellers seem all too reluctant to print these days. While it doesn't offer much in the way of action (although it does deliver on the title with Hellboy fighting a Cyclops), and Hellboy technically isn't even the one to stop Aphrodite, it's a fun tale featuring some interesting art by Olivier Vatine and yet another unusual situation our hero has found himself in.
