With the first issue of the new six-issue mini-series Hellboy creator Mike Mignola turns his attention back towards Koshchei, the cursed immortal sent to kill Hellboy by Baba Yaga in Hellboy: Darkness Calls. Opening with Hellboy and Koshchei in Hell, Koshchei the Deathless #1 takes place mostly in an extended flashback of the immortal sharing his tale including his apprenticeship under a dragon, his fame as a warrior, the tragedy of his marriage leading to death and immortality, and his first meeting with Baba Yaga.
Ben Stenbeck is a good choice for the comic's artist, fitting well into the look of the Hellboy universe. Although we don't get much of Big Red, I do like the look of Koshchei, the dragon, and the various others to pass the immortal's path.
While he's the furthest thing from a sympathetic character, I'm intrigued by this look back into the past of Koshchei. The framing of the having the story told in a pub in Hell is a nice touch as well. If I have concerns it's with Mignola finding enough content to fill six issues. Worth a look.

"Eezy Freezy" is a bit of lighthearted fun featuring at team-up of Batman (Kevin Conroy) and Plastic Man out to capture Mr. Freeze (Peter Stormare). The short includes Plastic Man (Dana Snyder) taking on the shape of Santa's sleigh (with Santa no less) as well as a makeshift stand-in for the Bat-Cycle's front wheel after accidentally crashing into Batman. Not the most memorable of shorts, but fun nonetheless.
