By request, a small selection of the Beasts of Burden story from Dark Horse presents #6 from last year.

I don't have #4.

When I found out that the Beasts of Burden had another story added to this latest collection from Dark Horse comics, I had to get it. Ok, not true, I wanted the follow up to what happened to Hellboy once members of the B.P.R.D. found out he had died, but out of all the stories this one got me good.

Beautiful art, wonderful storytelling, real characters that I care about, and honest-to-Roth emotion that changes from page to page. Love, friendship, joy... and horror.

Grab the hankies, and keep your loved pets close to you after this one. Just don't squeeze them too tight.

First post! Long time lurker from the LJ-days, first time poster on Dreamwidth. If I'm doing anything wrong here, please let me know and I'll fix it asap. It's still Halloween, and I can't think of a better time to post some Scary Godmother!

First, I have to apologize for the quality of the scans. I'm scanning the pages directly from my book, and the book is as flat as I can possibly get it on the scanner bed without completely messing up the spine. The blurry edges cover up some dialogue, but it's still mostly readable, I think. If anything needs clarified, I can go back and edit. I had to make the scans a bit bigger than usual, since the text is so tiny.

Anyway... 11 and a half pages from the 40-page Scary Godmother: My Bloody Valentine special, definitely not safe for dial-up!

Pages may contain groan-inducing puns, campy skeletons and more sugar than your entire bag of Halloween candy! )

As usual, the creators at DarkHorse for this project deliver a sharp tight story with good art, great characterization with real emotion, drama, risk and danger and a good pay off. And the addition of Hellboy and his universe to it just spices it up more for Halloween.

Just good old fashioned fun.

Spoilers behind the cut.

Boom. )

So, the fourth anthology story.

It's been mentioned in the threads of other posts, but I don't think it's ever been posted, and this must be rectified! Eight pages of a twenty-four page story behind the cut.

This whole limited series (and I wish they will make more) is one of the reasons why Scans_daily is so great. I never would've gotten this on my own or discovered it if not for the posts and love from the board, and I would not have recommended it to other comic book fans who now have picked it up themselves.

The adventures continue in #3.
Dark Horse has the preview.
