    This was a hell of an issue, highlighted magnificently by some of the best art from James Harren that readers have ever seen. His work in Conan The Barbarian was stellar, but he has really upped his game for this chapter of B.P.R.D. There is a lot more to come from this series, like the first mini-series where Mike Mignola turns his complete attention onto Vampires for the first time, so by waiting to jump into this story you're only adding to your inevitable stack of trades and collections. This is the kind of stuff you've always wanted in a comic series. Read Full Review

    An enjoyable, short little run in the BPRD line up. It has a Conan flair to it. A very heavy fantasy vibe. The art is great, and the plot is cool. While time travel is derivative, as are fighting with a sacred weapon frankly, you can get past this and still enjoy the book for what it is. And what it is is a fun little visit to the past, with a random BPRD agent. Read Full Review

    Overall, this is a beautiful issue. We get a great story with solid dialogue, complimented by some truly stunning art. The only real problem here was the fact that the story felt a bit predictable -- there was no real element of surprise. The issue was a bit too "formulaic" and really felt like something I had read before. Still, it's a great story, with very pretty and well done art work. Read Full Review

    Harren's action sequences are always a highlight, and these are no exception. It is hard to draw a sequence where the readers are, more or less, clueless about what is happening, and Harren walks that line between utter insanity and deliberate visual storytelling. The last ten pages or so were just a master class in how to draw action. Read Full Review

    In the letters column for "B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth" #104, it's mentioned that Harren's next "B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth" comic will "satisfy everyone who's had complaints about the direction of the book." That actually gives me hope, if only because it recognizes that for many readers the book's started to wander afield a bit too much as of late. So while the bad news is that "B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth" #104 is one of those issues that does just that, the good news is that this comic looks gorgeous and that it'll be getting fixed sooner or later. In the meantime, though, with a surprisingly lackluster and out-of-the-blue ending, this issue of "B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth" feels like it's aimed at die-hard fans only. Read Full Review
