Hellboy Vol 11: The Bride of Hell and Others (2011) Mike Mignola, Richard Corben, Kevin Nowlan, Scott Hampton

By all rights, I shouldn’t like the Hellboy comics at all.

Except, how can I not love a story containing dialog like this?

HEY EMILE!

Cut it out. You’re making the dead people nervous.

That bit was from “The Whittier Legacy” though I think that my favorite story from this book was “The Sleeping and the Dead” which required two readings before I put it all together.

But, I also really liked the first story, “Hellboy in Mexico,” and not just because it featured Day of the Dead skulls.

This is another collection of short stories, which adds another data point that I strongly prefer the Hellboy short story collections over books with a single story.
