The way this book ends, you can’t help but feel dicked around. When I bought the first issue in the arc, I expected a self contained story that may or may not be a smaller part of a bigger story.

This arc should just be called “Mystery Behind Abe Sapien that you won’t know”, but instead it tricked us into thinking we’re getting an adventure about a girl prophet.

Let me preface this and say that I am not a big B.P.R.D reader so this arc may ONLY be for the die-hard BPRD fans. But I’ve read the first four Hellboy trades and 1946 & 1947 issues, loved them all.

While reading this, I felt like I was dropped in the middle of a 60 issue arc and I don’t think that’s fair.

As far as story telling, it’s actually good. It kept me interested, until I realized there is no payoff. The art is very good. My biggest problem was that these three issues do not make an arc and it’s not a great place for a jumping on point. This issue should have been #36 in the 60 issue arc of Plague of the Frogs, or whatever …

This is a perfect example of the book being less than the sum of it’s parts.

Overall: 3/5
Story: 3/5
Art: 4/5

Story: 3 - Good
Art: 4 - Very Good


  1. I thought that it was just another chapter in a larger BPRD book (having just finished this 3 issue miniarc) And is there any relation with this ‘Gods’ arc and the following ‘Monsters’ 2 issue arc? Maybe that’s the way Dark Horse does the BPRD, they feel compelled to give some sub-title to the particular story lines. I really like BPRD, and yeah I too loved 1946 and 1947.
