will be "a fast and furious story in the typical Hellboy fashion,"

Reed said, "After years as a fan it was a thrill to work on a Hellboy
involved had so much fun working on it that we already have more in the
works to be released as the year goes on."

also feature an original short story by Christopher Golden. The RPG
is an entry in SJ Games' "Powered by GURPS" line of roleplaying games
that use the award-winning GURPS rules, but come with the basic GURPS
system integrated into the text, making the book a complete game.
