    Let's hope it doesn't end up like Hickman's S.H.I.E.L.D. #5 & 6...I don't think I will live to see that limited series completed.

That would stink. Thankfully I'm very sure that won't happen here. A lot of the Hellboy in Hell books have been spaced very far apart publication wise and it sort of makes sense why these would have an even bigger delay if he wants them to come out close together. Thankfully there have been other Hellboy stories to help fill the void.

    Maybe being a man of the cloth preempted the brother's destiny...still Hellboy should only be the second male descendant of Modred.

Okay, I went back and reread the Chained Coffin and I think I understand how it works now. Even though his brother was born first, Hellboy was conceived before him. Hellboy's father says that Hellboy was conceived back when his mother, as a young witch girl, first asked for his power and he was within her all through her life(scan attached). So he was the first conceived male descendant even though he wasn't actually born until after his mother's death.
