The Monaghan's 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.

The story "The Corpse" was partially serialized in Capital City's Advance Comics #75-#82. Here, it is printed in whole-- with an all-new back-up, "The Iron Shoes." In "The Iron Shoes," Hellboy enters a battered, medieval tower to take on a footnote from Irish folklore.
