Hellboy, Vol. 7: The Troll Witch and Others - Richard Corben, P. Craig Russell, Mike Mignola One star just for the art, which is amazing.

All these wonderful, rich and ancient fairy tales! Ironed out and pinned up as 2d backdrops so Hellboy can come in, punch someone, and run off. Why would a writer keep repeating the same formula like that, always skimming along the surface of these lush, magical stories. Why would people enjoy that, when all you can see is how much better it could be.
