Interesting. Fun.

But kind of a short one...

It wasn't what I was expecting, but it wasn't bad. I thought it was going to be information about what cultures they got their inspirations from monsters from, instead it was six short comics (I didn't read the synopsis, lol).

I Witnessed the End of the World - 1 star
Didn't care for this one at all.

The Hydra and the Lion - 4 stars
About Hellboy and Hercules. Different, but interesting.

A Tropical Horror - 0 stars
Totally skipped.

To Weave a Lover - 3 stars
Weird. Dude, was a nutcase.

The Horror Beneath

This anthology was okay, but I really only liked about half the stories ... Hellboy is a given, and then the stories by Busiek and Dorkin. I actually found the Evan Dorkin tale kind of heart wrenching. Actually I take that back, the Scott Allie story was pretty good too.

The first three collections in this series seemed to steadily improve, but this one dipped back down a bit. The Beasts of Burden story was the strongest of the lot, but nothing else made much of an impression.

I loved the one about the archaeologists in the desert and the short story by William Hope Hodgson. Oh, and the Beasts of Burden short story.

Some good artists & creators here, but nothing is very memorable. Perhaps the pieces are just too short.

A decent collection of monster tales. I liked "A Tropical Horror" by William Hope Hodgson and "The Horror Beneath" by Moore, Reppion, and Green best.
