Hellboy in Love #1

Set in England at the tail end of 1979, the first issue of Hellboy in Love features an archeologist named Anastacia who was robbed by goblins while transporting valuable artifacts bound for the British Museum. Thankfully, the B.P.R.D. put Hellboy on the train, which the goblins have been robbing on a regular basis, for protection.

As the issues suggests, there's some strong chemistry between the gruff Hellboy and the flirtatious and adventurous researcher. There's also plenty of action here with Anastacia and Hellboy squabbling cutely while working together to track the goblins and the artifacts down. Their path leads them eventually to a punk rock concert as the issue comes to a close but with answers possibly in sight.
