Following the deadly events of The Return of the Master, the reanimated director of the Russian occult sciences division leads a rescue mission through a blizzard as the B.P.R.D. engage in battle with more bat-faced monsters.

    AiPT! - Sean Mar 20, 2013

    Is quick story, much like Sledge-hammer 44, but engages readers with actions and plot of why mission so important. Pick up issue if you wish for quick battle in Russia, and to hear more of SSS, and perhaps for you to find out what is up with the fish man, Abe Sapien. Read Full Review

    Peter Snejbjerg makes these characters his own. His big monsters are as good as Mignolas or Guy Davis's. I love how these books are always about some giant evil monsters invading and attacking the earth and that it never seems old. I never tire of this masterfully played tune. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Sean Tonelli Mar 20, 2013

    B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth #105: Cold Day in Hell is the start of a great new arc, and the best time join to the Bureau. As a newcomer myself, I never once felt lost, in fact, I was completely enthralled and can't wait to see the exciting conclusion when part two is released. Until then, I'll tide myself over with next week's B.P.R.D. Vampire. Read Full Review

    his issue gives us a lot of little bits, and takes a few more step forward as far as the overall story is concerned, but for the most part you really can't help but wonder about Abe Sapien. What does he think about waking up in a world that has literally gone to hell and is completely overrun with monsters and crazy beasts of all shapes and sizes? I guess we'll have to wait to find that out. Let's just hope he doesn't go locking himself in a tank to avoid these monsters that have all but taken over the world. What a dumbass move that would be... Read Full Review

    If you've been keeping up with B.P.R.D. then you know things are about to get bad, which for us, the reader, is good news. Mignola, Arcudi and Snejbjerg, like any great horror team, thrive when crafting unimaginable terror -- something this book has in spades. Read Full Review

    ___$3.50, 22pgs.+ pinup; all ADs @ back. ____ Looking to be a great 2 parter, which will please any regular reader with any interest in Varvara or the Soviets. ive felt that BPRD has slipped away from its roots and characters. Stories too populated with new cast, far too mundane. But ive spoken too soon, just as Liz has made a recent resurfacing. Another of the old team is back, awoken to a very different world. .The art looks great and Stewart continues the coloring that just 'makes' the Mignolaversefor me. i look forward to the next issue!
