This was the only dissapointing in the TPB, Mignola done it just to fill the remnant pages of the original comic book where the previous short story was re-published, but definitely is too brief to have real time to enjoy it.

A wonderful collection of Hellboy short stories. Mignola has stated that when he first completed the story he thought that the limitations of the two-page format meant that chqined was the worst he had ever written, but feedback from people he respects has caused him to change his mind and he now believes it is one of the best.
