A collection of shorts in the pulp tradition, uneven art and brevity are trumped by variety and whimsy. ( )

The short stories, or "weird tales", contained within this volume are very short and they're not really all that detailed. Most of them were very short and sweet, which doesn't bother me having read all of the other Hellboy volumes. My appreciation for this volume came from seeing Hellboy through the eyes of other artists or writers. The illustrations were drastically different from Mignola's original volumes, and even between each small story contained within this book they were unique. Some of the art styles were so cool to see one of my favorite characters in. Some of the stories were a lot better than the others, but they were all serviceable enough to me. ( )

This is not a through-line story, and is not a Mike Mignola treatment of the Mignola characters. However, they are entertaining. I particularly enjoy the first entry, by Craig Thompson (creator of Blankets), in which HB vacations in Hell. Some of the stories do not even feature Hellboy, but are still pretty engaging. ( )
