Young Hellboy: Assault on Castle Death #1

The creators of Young Hellboy: The Hidden Land reunite for another four-issue mini-series featuring a young Hellboy's adventures. The Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense has relocated to Connecticut, much to the dismay of our title character who is also fighting some kind of mystery illness that appears tied to the forgotten memories of his island adventure.

Tying back the previous mini-series, we're introduced to the Italian monetary hellbent (so to speak) on killing Hellboy before his is prophesized to bring about the apocalypse. Although their agent wasn't able to complete his mission over the Pacific, they have other sleeper agents awaiting to be awoken. The name of the mini-series is only mentioned once, by a surprise guest-star. It's uncertain just what the Castle of Death is, or how it might relate to the cult out to kill the young Hellboy, but may just be the cure for his homesickness.
