The general rating is an average result of individual ratings given to each short story contained here. They were well done, but they lacked of character development and since it was the beginning of t The heat is on!!! They were well done, but they lacked of character development and since it was the beginning of the series, I expected to get to know what made thick each character. Also, the action was fair, but not something that awesome and leaving stuff without concluding properly.
Why not 3rd and 4th? I am glad to say that finally I enjoyed a lot the reading. Hellboy is asked to rescue a baby who was kidnapped by fairies, to be able to do this, he had to make a task solicited by them, but the clock is ticking and the time is short. Mike Mignola merged in a masterfully way several Irish folktales into this thrilling adventure.
This was the only dissapointing in the TPB, Mignola done it just to fill the remnant pages of the original comic book where the previous short story was re-published, but definitely is too brief to have real time to enjoy it.
She has curious habits. When you think that the short story finished, Mignola hits you with a final punch raising the whole impact of the tale. The young girl dissapeared in a hole at the grounds of the property. Mignola adapted folklore stuff into a Christmas story with a creepy good ambiance and development. Hellboy never cared to check that place before in 50 years, but now he is getting to understand why he was so reluctant. Wonderful piece which give the name to the third TPB and adding a key event involving the origin of Hellboy.
Kate Corrigan are sent by the BPRD to investigate the mysterious deaths of the entire population of a town, happened in one night. Along with those deaths, a priest, old friend of Hellboy, died there too, the same night. Creepy good adventure, introducing the wonderful character of Kate Corrigan, and presenting a delicious mystery. Kate Corrigan are sent by the BPRD to find what happened otherrs a homunculus found in Wake the Devil which can be crucial to save the life of Liz Sherman who lost her pyrokinetic powers to it and now she is dying.
Hellboy and Kate will find more than they are expecting and maybe more than they can handle. This is direct continuation of the events developed in Wake the Devil will have more impact of you may imagine in the future of the series.

Jul 02, Bradley rated it it was amazing Shelves: I’m really getting into Hellboy now. I wasn’t quite sure I was liking it for anything more than it’s clever use of history, its esoteric occult or ofhers bits, or everyone’s acceptance of a big red demon carrying on paranormal investigations in the fifties and sixties. How does no one mind this???
However, by this volume, I’m now emotionally invested chainwd well. It’s just a little, but it’s something. I love the Fae and the Golem bits the most. I wasn’t quite sure I’d get into all these tiny vign I’m really getting into Hellboy now.
I wasn’t quite sure I’d get into all these tiny vignettes as much as I’d have preferred a good solid arc, but I did. Jan 07, Lata rated it really liked it Shelves: I really enjoyed each story in this collection. I just wish Kate and every other woman in theses stories hadn’t been damsels in distress. The artwork continues to impress.
Sep 15, First Second Books added it Shelves: It’s embarrassing how late I am to loving Hellboy. Mar 15, Melissa McShane rated ciffin it was amazing Shelves: I’m increasing my rating of the collection because I appreciate the thematic unity better than I did before. Each of these stories is based in folklore to some degree, underlining helboy series’ commitment to myth and legend as opposed to the companion series B.
Even so, I look forward to a return to the main storyline.

With this third volume, I feel the limitations of vhained the comics in bound form instead of as single issues. The stories are good, but some refer to previous issues that in this version were printed later.
My favorite is coftin “The Wolves of August. She’s got to be the most mythic character he’s got second to Hellboyand the hellbot he’s designed her pyrokinetic abilities should be an obvious starting point for a major storyline.
Good thing he worked that out, because she’s my favorite. Sep 23, Sesana rated it really liked it Shelves: I think this may be the volume that’s gotten me hooked to Hellboy. I love the way Mignola uses folklore as a starting point to his stories. And I loved the notes he added to this collection. Most of the stories here are very short, but none of them felt too short, or stretched out, for that matter.
The Corpse in particular was nearly perfect in every way.

The character of Hellboy makes for a great lead in these sorts of stories: My one criticism is how Mignola hand I think this may be the volume that’s gotten me hooked to Hellboy. My one criticism is how Mignola handled Liz.
He acknowledges in his notes that he didn’t know what to do with her, and that’s a shame. Even in the one story she appears in, which is meant to be centered around her life-or-death struggle, she barely shows up. I hlelboy her when she showed up previously, so it was a shame.

Lots here for longtime fans, and also a great book to give to somebody if you’re trying to introduce them to Hellboy and the Mignolaverse.

This is the first such volume. And it’s a brilliant one!

Each of those stories come with an introduction hwllboy Mignola himself, and they are a great insight into how the stories were created. It’s a phenomenal read, and the first truly great volume of Hellboy — ant the first two were already quite good!
Anyway, if you have not read Hellboy yet, you owe it to yourself to pick up this series. October 24, Rating: October 15, Rating:
