Hellboy Weird Tales Volume Two.

This second compilation of short stories by some of the best artist of the comic field playing with Mignola 's creation is even richer than the first one. It even has a Lobster Johnson serial, but it lacks as many humor as the fist part. One couldn't get all.

PRAGUE
Well, some people could consider this only an ilustration but it is in fact a one page - four panel comic. Hellboy fights the Golem at Prague. We can see his doer and the sheet of paper that gives him life. And Hellboy relaxes at the sight of one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Art by Lee Bermejo.

MY VACATION IN HELL
Craig Thomson is one of my favourite artist ever and this short story didn't disappoint me. It is a fake and humorous medieval tapestry of Hellboy on vacation in Hell. Just relaxing again and fishing... Leviatans.

A LOVE STORY
A ghost love story with happy ending and dogfight. Cool. By Tommy Lee Edwards and Don Cameron.

SHATTERED
Hellboy is asked to return to B.P.R.D. with the Xul Chalak a vase that made him see so many things that he return with it, but in peaces. By Marz and Starlin.

FRIDAY
Doug Petrie and Gene Colan has Liz suffering from loneliness while fighting an strange guy. But Abe helps her.

COMMAND PERFORMANCE
Amazing art by P. Caig Russell to tell a story by Pfeifer about a haunted guignol that Hellboy must defeat on stage.

LOVE IS SCARIER THAN DEATH
J. H. Williams III and Haden Blackman go for romance when a Goatman attacks Hellboy and Emma. No fat chance of a luxury time for our heroes.

THEATER OF THE DEAD
A zombie headless gangster makes justice by killing his summoners with a Thompson. By Pascoe, Fassbender and Wilkins.

TOY SOLDIER
Japanese approach to Hellboy. Our guy must fight a puppeter that turns to life his creeations. A monk is a new adition to the league of friends of Hellboy. By Yoshida and Asamiya.

PROFESSIONAL HELP
Dorkin presents Roger in a setting I read in a Spanish comicbook where a rock band that want to rescue the old European gods (the similarities end here), allied with nazis and create a big-big baby. The adventure ends with a fight.

FIFTEEN MINUTES
¡Ah! Jill Thompson. Another reason to buy this book. This is a fun story where skeletons complain about the treatment Hellboy gave to them while fighting a giant Were-rat.

LONG DISTANCE CALLER
Johann aborts an alien invasion by only being there. Amazing art by Kev Walker.

COOL YOUR HEAD
Hellboy on vacation talks to an old man that turns his mind outside down. By Scott Morse. 

LOBSTER JOHNSON
After a Hellboy gallery (Cho, Kaluta, Noto, Williams III, Stewart Fields, Templesmith, Stevens and Purcell), a fake Lobster Johnson comic serial, estimated 1939. By John Cassaday. It is followed by an sketchbook.
