“Hellboy is a fine young man,” replied my father stiffly. “Just think of him as having a different background. Like a Gurkha or a chap from Africa. I met him in Malaya during the Emergency, got a lot of respect for the fellow.”
“He’s not a Gurkha,” I protested weakly. “He’s got a tail, and he’s red-”
“Salamander Blues” involves pancakes. It’s also about abducted frog creature eggs, and making peace with the other forces. Nice little tale. “The Thursday Men” is a silly little tale about dimensions intersecting with ours, and the trouble that inter-dimensional aliens can cause us, even when they don’t mean to. “Produce” is a very short, very strange tale about a kitten in a supermarket. Wow! “Repossession” is a spooky story about demon catching in Egypt and Mali – and we’re off to Timbuktu. Nice one. “In Cupboards And Bookends” is a freaky story involving the Reverend, that includes demons sheltering shattered child spirits. Spooky. Great quotes here too:
“Are you laughing at me, rise?”
“No, great boy, I am laughing near you. You ought to try joining in sometime.”
“Only if there will be pancakes later.”
Oh yeah… pamcakes again! There are other nice quotes too, like: “The BPRD chopper lifted off from a field one mile east of the Heath airport. Hellboy stood in the field, waved until the chopper was high enough, and then waved at the pilot. He never understood why he loved doing that so much, but he did, and what did it hurt?” (Sort of a M*A*S*H moment here) The story also has a Cheech And Chong reference (”Dave’s not here”), and it is in this story we also learn that Hellboy is afraid of ponies! That’s just wrong!!
“Feet Of Sciron” is an odd story about a rival BPRD, a phantom planet, the hollow earth, and ways in which our legends intersect with reality. Wow! “Monster Boy” is about a kid who loves monster movies, the old ones, and who has trouble with his parents, and the kids at school… but not after he spots Hellboy fighting a ghoul one night, well after midnight. Nice. And a very unique tale indeed, as Hellboy hardly appears in it! “Evolution And Hellhole Canyon” is a freaky tale of Hellboy’s adventures in the desert. “A Room Of One’s Own” goes on about literary endeavors, like the “Yellow Wallpaper”, and “The Curtains”. The title is a reference to Virginia Woolf… nice thought… but silly story.

Pluspunkt ist hier eher das weiterhin schlüssige Design von Mignola, und wie gut der Band zu den anderen Anthologien und Romanen aus dem Mignolaversum passt.
