Synopses & Reviews
This third and thickest Hellboy collection compiles all material not included in Seed of Destruction or Wake the Devil. Mike Mignola's story notes accompany the long out-of-print one-shots "Wolves of Saint August" and "The Corpse and the Iron Shoes," as well as "A Christmas Underground," "The Chained Coffin" (in color for the first time), and "Almost Colossus," with new story pages. This 176-page collection includes a pinup gallery featuring Kevin Nowlan, Duncan Fegredo, and others, as well as an all-new tale.
Mike Mignola's story notes accompany the long out-of-print stories, giving insight into their creation and inspiration. Some consider Mignola's short stories better than the full-length novels, and this collection makes a strong argument for that, especially with Mignola's masterpiece, "The Corpse."
