    This is definitely an issue that Hellboy fans should pick up this week! It's hard to believe that this is only a two part story considering the amount of stuff that happens in the issue, and it definitely feels like Mignola and Arcudi could extend it if they really wanted to. It's a fun horror comic and the writers capture the mysticism and overall danger of the events very well. Great pacing, gorgeous art, beautiful story. I highly recommend this to veteran Hellboy fans and new readers alike. Read Full Review

    Abe Sabien is a good character because he isn't as invincible as Hellboy appears to be. Abe is a more sensitive character and seems to relate to humans better than most in BPRD. All of this comes out in this book to help establish just how serious the trouble is that Abe finds himself in by the end of the book. This was just an all-around excellent comic. Read Full Review

    I've always said that I never read too much B.P.R.D. and what little I did, Iquickly discovered that I wasn't a big fan of Abe's. I just never got into hischaracter and so I wasn't expecting much from this issue. Fortunately, Abe andcompany didn't care about me liking them and delivered a great story thatheavily connects to the bigger stories happening throughout the Hellboy-verse.If you've been digging Hellboy and B.P.R.D. then picking up this book is ano brainer.
