  1. I was on the fence and disinclined until I saw Moon and Ba’s name on it. Those guys are too good.

  3. How can you not be excited for new BPRD.

  4. Fábio Moon AND Gabriel Bá AND Hellboy? All in one? How can you not buy this!?

  5. I love everything Hellboy-related, but I buy very little of it. I think I was waiting for that wond’rous point in my life when I’ll lounge all day on mountains of cash and buy everything Mignola has done in one fell-swoop. Finally breaking down and getting the new BPRD I think is me coming to grips that the money-pile dream may still be a while coming…

  6. Haven’t picked up BPRD in a while.  Figured this one would be good.

  7. And don’t forget, not only it’s more BPRD, which is always good, and drawn by Moon and Bá, both who are stunning on everything they did so far, it got Joshua Dysart, who not only wrote the amazing BPRD:1946, but KILLS it on Unknown Soldier for Vertigo every month. This should be really good.

    Hellboy in pajamas! 


  9. Classic.

  10. This is the first BPRD book I’ve ever read, and, although I feel like I would’ve gotten more out of it if I’d read the prequel, I thought this was really, really good. A fantastic 4/5 stars.

  11. Cool read.  I’ve always liked the post-WWII era stories in Hellboy and BPRD.  Really had a lot of fun with this book.

  12. Didn’t realize the twins were on this, luckily I read the credits at the shop.

  13. I’ve only read only one other arc for BPRD (The Warning), so I don’t have a whole lot of background knowledge w/ this title (or any Hellboy stories).   But I really enjoyed this issue.  Kind of creepy.  Ends on a cliffhanger.  And the art was top notch.

  14. This is my first soujeune (spelling?) into the world of Hell Boy and I am suitably impressed. Looking forward to a neat little series.

    For everybody who enjoyed this as their first exposure to BPRD, check out BPRD 1946 (now in trade). The regular BPRD series is set in modern times. You’ll probably like that too.  

  16. *coughs* If you’re on Amazon, you should also write a review (for the BPRD 1946 TPB). It’s got an average (average from one review) score of 2 stars, mainly because the reviewer disliked Azaceta‘s brilliant turn on on it. A cryin’ shame if you ask me. */coughs*
