The Dark Horse Book of Witchcraft conjures up weird tales of horror and magic the likes of which one seldom sees in graphic novels. Mignola returns with another Hellboy story; Thompson (Scary Godmother) and Dorkin (Dork, Hectic Planet) return to their characters in the stunning Stray' story, the surprise hit of the first volume in this series. Morse (Ancient Joe, Soulwind) presents an evocative and carefully researched tale of old Salem, digging into the madness of the accusations leveled there, which ended more than thirty lives in a few short months.'… (more)

Another collection of tales from the folks at Dark Horse, this one focusing on the dark arts of witchcraft.

To kick it off in high style after Scott Allie's introduction, we get an illustrated version of Macbeth's witches. There is another Hellboy tale, "The Troll Witch" and a Beasts of Burden story called "Unfamiliar," both of which are excellent. Also included is a Clark Ashton Smith story illustrated by Gary Gianni, along with an interview with Wiccan High Priestess Phyllis Curott. Of course there is a story from Salem, and a creepy, beautifully drawn tale called "The Flower Girl."

Some good stories with fantastic artwork, just like The Dark Horse Book of Hauntings. ( )

Reading the whole line for the Beasts of Burden backstory. This collection was definitely creepier than Hauntings, although still mildly so. The high number of ambiguous endings was a little risky. Hellboy story reliably good. Particularly liked the Salem one as well. ( )

This was pretty cool. T really liked the art (and the story) for the Clark Ashton Smith story (Mother of Toads). The interview with a real life wican high priestess was cool and the dog/cat story was surprisingly great. The Hellboy story was good too.

I've got another one of these collections that's about monsters so I'll probably check that out soon. ( )
