Hellboy – part Indiana Jones, part Satan-spawned Hulk – and his occult hero pals star in this short-story anthology by various top talents. ”Big-Top-Hell-Boy” showcases Captain America penciler John Cassaday’s crisp artistry, yet the spectral circus yarn is a ghostly imitation of his superior Planetary work. Best of the creepy lot is ”Children of the Black Mound,” written by Fabian Nicieza and drawn by Stefano Raffaele, wherein Joseph Stalin has a formative encounter with Hellboy foil Baba Yaga. A must for fans of Mike Mignola’s retro-cool creation – but newcomers beware.
