When Hellboy was in Rumania, he defeated a beast: The Beast of Vargu, with the help of a gipsy woman. Now that woman is dead, and her daughter needs his help before her fatal hour arrives.
It all has to do with a classic demon disguised as a lover boy, who wants to marry this girl. However, the mother will not have it, not even after she is dead; of course she died under mysterious circumstances…
The great thing about this story is that you don’t even need to fit this inside a particular time frame, because Hellboy will be summoned in his sleep, and defeat the demon accordingly.
There is also a second story, where Hellboy must fight a ghost. Somebody has died in dire circumstances, after stealing a sacred book from Iceland, and now the ghost wants the artifact back. However, B.P.R.D. has many useful people in it, and sometimes you just need a rusty nail and some knowledge of Icelandic lore…
