I thought this tenth volume would continue the ninth, The Wild Hunt, but should have realized it wasn’t since they were released too close together. This collection of a few Hellboy stories are OK, especially “The Crooked Man” wherein Hellboy deals with rednecks’ legends, and “In the Chapel of Moloch” which is a welcome return of Mignola’s art. It is the latter that reminds me that Hellboy and Mignola’s art really go best together. It is a shame that the character is so popular to allow Mignola to concentrate of the one aspect of the work and ignore the other.
