  1. spooky

  2. I really want to start reading Mignola’s books but have no interest in spending the countless months reading in order to catch up with everything, is this book approachable for an outsider/new reader like myself? hollllaaaa back

    • I jumped in a couple of years ago and had no real problem figuring it out. Hellboy is dead and it will be a little while before we’re getting new Hellboy issues. BPRD is awesome and all you really need to know is that there is an apocalypse on Earth and that Abe Sapien is currently in a coma or in stasis. All of the non-Hellboy Mignola books are great too i.e. Lobster Johnson (a retro pulp hero tale), Baltimore (vampire hunter in WWI era), and Witchfinder.

    • I would say that jumping on with no previous knowledge of the universe could be kind of rough. Both Hellboy and BPRD reference things that happened way back at the very beginning of Hellboy and there is a lot of information being thrown around. You would be better served just catching up.

      BPRD is probably more new reader friendly though. I started by reading the first 2 hardcovers and jumped on with Hell on Earth – Russia and while some stuff goes over my head I don’t feel lost. Just my opinion though.

    • Thanks fellas

    • the title page has a list of the main characters and a brief description of each that is updated from time to time. for that reason, i find each mini to be fairly self-contained.
      jump on in. it’s easy enough to follow. and if you love it, then you can go back and collect the trades if you want.
      the mignola universe is a wonderfully dark place. very different in the most awesome ways.

  3. I haven’t read BPRD in issues in years (behind on the trades, as well) but hope to jump back on with this one. I agree that it’s difficult to keep up with everything that’s happened, but Mignola is so awesome I just don’t care.

    • I jumped on board the ‘Good Ship BPRD’ during the Hell on Earth:Russia series and fell head-over-heels for this universe. I realized there was some history lurking throughout the story, but, like you, i just didn’t care because I was experiencing an awesome display of comic book making!
