Review by kivarson
Great collection of shorts, with artwork not only by Mignola, but also Richard Corben and P. Craig Russell.
Review by regularguy5mb
Another collection of shorter Hellboy tales, and they are magnificent. Makoma was especially amazing, especially with the switch in perspective between Mignola's artwork (real world) and Richard Corben's (the story of Makoma). I also like how Hellboy dreams himself as Makoma, especially since they appear to have similar fates.One of the things I've always liked about Hellboy is that we jump from his arrival on Earth in 1944 to his (at the time) current timeline of 1994, this gives Mignola and any other Hellboy writer a lot of history to create over time. In these short tales, we go from the 50s to the year before Seed of Destruction, 1993.Also, there is such a fantastic love for folklore and mythology from all over the world that comes through in all the Hellboy stories.

Makoma was freaking excellent.

Mignola not only works with odd folklore but with odd artists. Refreshing.
Review by BrookeAshley
I've found myself enjoying the short story collections more than the main storyline collections, and this volume was no exception. I really liked the two stories that were drawn by people other than Mignola - they used colors that aren't normally used in the series, and it was nice to see it visualized a little differently. Plus, the ghost using scissors to snip the dividing line on the 2nd page of The Vampire of Prague? Totally awesome.
