I liked this volume of Hellboy stories much better than the first. This group of writers seems to have a better handle on the characters. There was also a much greater ratio of hits to misses for me than the first book.
The first story in Odder Jobs, The Brotherhood of the Gun, is so enjoyable that it has found a special place in my heart amidst my other Hellboy all-time favorites such as Pancakes, the Corpse and the Third Wish. This volume also features Mignola illustrations with the sixteen stories. Lots of fun; Hellboy rocks! Better than prior volume. Always a problem when you have multiple contributers. This was still wonderful, but overall did not grab me like the other anthologies.
There were definitely some very high highs and I would still recommend it to any fans of the character or fans of pulpy, short horror stories.

Author Charles de Lint even crosses over his own characters from his Newford series with the BPRD as they take on a kraken deep underground my other favorite story from this collection. Odder Jobs is a good follow up to the previous Odd Jobs collection. As with any assortment of short stories, some are better than others. For those lovers of Hellboy these short stories really fun.
Not so sure about the few stories at the beginning, but got better towards the end. I’d say that ‘The Vampire Brief’ was probably my favourite from the collection. These short stories by various Hellboy-fanboy authors are a hoot. More Odd Jobs, please! This is a great collection of stories.
