The Wolves of Saint August / The Corpse and the Iron Shoes
The Corpse and the Iron Shoes
In Hellboy: The Corpse and the Iron Shoes, the Monaghans have a problem—faeries have stolen their baby.
Tam O'Clannie's problem is he wants a Christian burial, and he's already getting pretty ripe. Hellboy has more than his share of problems with border goblins, dead men, and war monsters, as he tries to make everyone happy in one night, roaming the Irish landscape looking for a Christian graveyard and finding only pagan monstrosities.
In the backup "The Iron Shoes," Hellboy enters a battered medieval tower to take on a footnote from Irish folklore.
