    The story itself is a throwback to the older Hellboy, the spookier Lovecraft-inspired Hellboy of days gone by, with haunted mansions, cults and necromancers in plenty. The narrative flows smoothly and with practised ease and the artwork is of course top-notch, as one would expect in a BPRD book. It leaves you with a sense of haunting. Something missing from most of the comics out there that like to stake claim to the horror genre. A nice, short, eerie comic book. My only gripe with it: it could have been a little longer. Twenty-five pages flew by too fast. A recommended read for everyone. Read Full Review

    The deliciously deviant fall of a man into insanity. There's nothing else to say but, “Ammem. Nogoth. Habbeth. Nem-Ett.” Read Full Review

    Side note: As soon as I finished reading the book, I immediately hopped onto my phone and messaged BDs own Lonmonster (I know Im pretty special), and told him how blown away I was and that he must read this one. Read Full Review

    When everyone looks bizarre, when regular humans have pop-eyes and expressionistic body styles, the impact of the actual weirdness is lessened. Read Full Review

    I’m sure that long time readers of Hellboy and B.P.R.D. will enjoy this one-shot, but I really think that anyone can pick up this issue and find something to enjoy. I won’t pretend to know a lot about the universe’s history, but I was able to follow along just fine with the story and past characters mentioned. That’s the charm of this franchise is that you can always jump on at any given moment and as long as you don’t focus on it like it’s #93 in a series (which it is) you’ll be fine. Read Full Review
