$17.95 US (paperback)
*** 1/2 (out of five)

A goat monster, a headless gunman and a vacation in hell — yep, this Hellboy book earns the name Weird Tales.
This second collection of the anthology series that sees some of the comic book industry’s best and brightest take a 8-10 page stab at Mike Mignola’s big, red paranormal investigator is as diverse as those creating it.
Standouts include Craig Thompson’s aforementioned My Vacation In Hell; Will Pfeifer and P. Craig Russell’s Command Performance, a look at a death-defying stage act that the hero aims to close the curtains on; and Jill Thompson’s 15 Minutes, a glimpse at the hard work that goes into being a prop skeleton.
