The general rating is an average result of individual ratings given to each short story contained here.Creative Team Creator, Writer Illustrator Mike Mignola FINALLY THIS THING HEATED I have to admit that I wasn t that impressed on the first two TPBs, Seed of Destruction Wake the Devil 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.Still, I have watched the films live action and animated and I quite liked them, so I want to give to this series a couple ofchances, buying the third TPB, The Chained Coffin and Others, and the eighth TPB, Darkness Calls Why those Why not 3rd and 4th Oh, well, mainly because doing some research I found out that 3rd TPB has a following story to the events developed in the 2nd TPB, and the 8th TPB supposedly I haven t read it yet a follow up about Rasputin main villain in the first two TPBs Also, one important thing about Hellboy s stories is that they aren t linear and or written in chronological order, so basically, you can jump in any TPB or novel and you won t feel confused.I am glad to say that finally I enjoyed a lot the reading Nope, the characters development keep zero, BUT since they were short stories I can live without characters development in short stories, also, Mignola used several elements of Irish, Russian and other countries folklore, so honestly, I liked a lot the reading experience with this one, and now I know that I can keep reading other Hellboy stuff in comic books and prose format, which was my intention but I wanted that the series clicked on me first.So, since this TPB is a collection of short stories mainly developed in two comic book issues tops, so I will review it as I usually do in anthologies THE CORPSE Rating 4 stars This is an old game and I ve got to play it their way. Ireland, 1959.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 THE IRON SHOES Rating 2 stars Anybody homeIreland, 1961.Hellboy goes into a kinda demolished old tower to find a dangerous fairy who isn t affected by iron, in fact the monster wears a pair of iron shoes not like horses but actually shoes made of iron.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 THE BABA YAGA Rating 5 stars It tells you something She has curious habits It s not for you and I to understand. Russia, 1964.Hellboy is tracking a very powerful witch with several habits, some odd, some nasty, but one thing is sure, you won t realice the real extention of her powers until it s too late.This adventure was mentioned in Wake the Devil, but it s until now that readers are able to know the details about it When you think that the short story finished, Mignola hits you with a final punch raising the whole impact of the tale A CHRISTMAS UNDERGROUND Rating 4 starsAnd there are stones in that place older than any Christian grave. England, 1989.It s Christmas Eve, and Hellboy is summoned to find the missing daughter of an old lady who is just about to die The young girl dissapeared in a hole at the grounds of the property Yes, I guess what you may think, but this isn t about madness, it s about evil.Mignola adapted folklore stuff into a Christmas story with a creepy good ambiance and development There are some odd relevance about the date, but taking in account that scholars have put in doubt when was really the day that Jesus born, I found odd that Mignola didn t bother about that, but again, it s a Christmas story, so I am forgiving about that THE CHAINED COFFIN Rating 5 stars But what really happened hereEngland, 1995.Hellboy tells through a letter to his friend and BPRD colleague, Abe Sapien, about his visit again to the place where he born Hellboy never cared to check that place before in 50 years, but now he is getting to understand why he was so reluctant Something that can scare even to Hellboy isn t meant to know for mere mortals.Wonderful piece which give the name to the third TPB and adding a key event involving the origin of Hellboy THE WOLVES OF SAINT AUGUST Rating 5 stars If I m right, this town has an ugly little secret. Eastern Europe, 1994.Hellboy and Prof 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 ALMOST COLOSSUS Rating 4 stars You smell itYeahSomebody s cooking. Romania, 1996.Hellboy and Prof Kate Corrigan are sent by the BPRD to find what happened with 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 findthan they are expecting and maybethan they can handle.This is direct continuation of the events developed in Wake the Devil will haveimpact of you may imagine in the future of the series

    I thoroughly enjoyed this It s basically a bunch of short stories, with Hellboy coming up against random folk tale baddies, and doing what he does best taking a whooping until he gets the upper hand, and then punching a monsters face in I liked how these focused on Hellboy, without too much extra stuff going on My two favorites were The Wolves of Saint August, because let s face it, I m a sucker for a good werewolf story, and Almost Colossus, which wrapped up the Wake the Devil miniseries I thoroughly enjoyed this It s basically a bunch of short stories, with Hellboy coming up against random folk tale baddies, and doing what he does best taking a whooping until he gets the upper hand, and then punching a monsters face in I liked how these focused on Hellboy, without too much extra stuff going on My two favorites were The Wolves of Saint August, because let s face it, I m a sucker for a good werewolf story, and Almost Colossus, which wrapped up the Wake the Devil miniseries All of these were really good, but those two stand out They were also the longest two The art was also amazing, as always I highly recommend this to anyone who is a fan of the Hellboy franchise, of folk tales and monsters, action, or short stories

    Mignola s first collection of shorter stories and it s a fantastic one A lot of these appeared in other anthologies and the like first or were one off issues You get both great stand alone stories like The Wolves of St August and stories that ultimately matter to the ongoing narrative like The Chained Coffin or Almost Colossus Regardless, you can rarely go wrong with Hellboy.

    I m really getting into Hellboy now I wasn t quite sure I was liking it for anythingthan it s clever use of history, its esoteric occult or science 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 as 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 was liking it for anythingthan it s clever use of history, its esoteric occult or science 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 as 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 vignettes as much as I d have preferred a good solid arc, but I did

    A great collection of tales that further world builds and character builds.I have pretty much everything that is Mignola and I find that at the beginning of his run on HB, it was the short one shots that were his most effective and entertaining stories and The Chained Coffin collection is a perfect example for that World It s HB and the Mignolaverse, if you ve read through 2 trades that means you know what to expect It is rich in mythology, subtle and slow world building and choked full of loc A great collection of tales that further world builds and character builds.I have pretty much everything that is Mignola and I find that at the beginning of his run on HB, it was the short one shots that were his most effective and entertaining stories and The Chained Coffin collection is a perfect example for that World It s HB and the Mignolaverse, if you ve read through 2 trades that means you know what to expect It is rich in mythology, subtle and slow world building and choked full of locations and characters that are interesting and odd This collection was great in that because of the multiple short stories, we get a lotworld building in terms of history and life of HB it s a good thing to see.Story There are so many gems here that I won t go into all of them, there is still an underlying arc that is slowly revealing itself since Seed of Destruction, however each individual story is self contained, focused and fun We have some stories that are there to firmly establish some new characters and old, but also tales of world building and history building I especially like tales such as Baba Yaga that feels like it s a throwaway but actually is building towards something bigger Then there is the awesome Chained Coffin and Iron Bootsgood stuff.Characters Short and sweet stories actually make for some good character development HB is still HB but we actually get to learn about a couple of charactersintimately, Kate, Abe and Liz come to mind The characterizations is still very straight forward and basic but as I said, the world building is slow and meticulous and eventually it will pay off.It s a wonderful collection and it shows Mignola s art and creativity due to the variety of stories and art in this collection Onward to the next book

    Re read 8 1 15 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 the series commitment to myth and legend as opposed to the companion series B.P.R.D., which emphasizes the paranormal investigator aspect I still love The Wolves of August, but this time I was also drawn to A Christmas Underground, which is a very creepy variation on The Twelve Dancing Princesses Re read 8 1 15 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 the series commitment to myth and legend as opposed to the companion series B.P.R.D., which emphasizes the paranormal investigator aspect I still love The Wolves of August, but this time I was also drawn to A Christmas Underground, which is a very creepy variation on The Twelve Dancing Princesses Even so, I look forward to a return to the main storyline.6 19 12 With this third volume, I feel the limitations of reading 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 probably The Wolves of August I was very surprised to learn from Mignola s notes that in Almost Colossus he was planning to kill off Liz Sherman because he never knew what to do with her Really She s got to be the most mythic character he s got second to Hellboy , and the way 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
