    "B.P.R.D. Hell On Earth: The Long Death" #1 is a very smart comic in how it handles plot and character with gorgeous visuals. Mignola's "Hellboy" universe books are usually very good but this is one of the best I've read in some time. I can't wait to read the next issue. Read Full Review

    But personally it is the little scenes that I am appreciating the most in B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth and specifically in this new mini-series, The Long Death. Dark Horse has been building up to something big for awhile now, and 2012 promises to be a complete game-changer in Mignola's shadow-haunted universe. But I like the road they are taking to get there; more personal and intimate instead of getting lost in the big picture. Read Full Review

    Shit's going down in the Mignolaverse. Hellboy's dead (he's still dead, right?) and most of the B.P.R.D.is down and out. And I'm back on board to find out what's next. Read Full Review

    I don't know if anyone needs a review for B.P.R.D., but I sure enjoy talking aboutthe book. I try to keep the spoilers lite so that the book is still enjoyable,but it's becoming increasingly difficult with this series as "Hell on Earth"continues and we approach "Hellboy in Hell." I can't say that this book is thebest to start on for new readers since I've been reading it for a year now, butI can say that it recaps the last series very well and hints about everythingelse happening in the world. If you still haven't checked out anything from theHellboy-verse I encourage you to give this book a shot. It's some of the bestserial storytelling in comics today. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - George Chimples Feb 21, 2012

    The Dark Horse's B.P.R.D. line consistently puts out some of the best stuff in comics, and it fills a horror-themed comics niche that few of the other big publishers were doing well (up until Animal Man and Swamp Thing). Right now isn't the most forgiving time for new readers storyline-wise, but it is definitely worth it to catch up to what is going on presently in the Hellboy universe. The Long Death is a strong start to what promises to be another great arc, and it's a chance to seefierynew talent James Harren at work. B.P.R.D. Hell On Earth: The Long Death #1 earns itself a grand four out of five stars. Read Full Review

    CHUD - Jeb Delia Feb 17, 2012

    Not the best start for a new series, but it has a lot of good will. There's dread and atmosphere a plenty, but it's all very familiar: Special forces team is sent to deal with supernatural threat and most of the team is wiped out, leaving a mismatched duo to fend for themselves while hashing out personal problems. It's competently done, but the maudlin mood and murky art isn't welcoming for new readers, and can't manage to recreate the old spirit for fans. Read Full Review
