    Comic Bastards - Jordan North Jul 17, 2013

    BPRD is never anything less than good fun (it's also always stunningly beautiful). A popcorn book if you will, and for it there are few, if any substitutes. Read Full Review

    Mignola, Arcudi, Campbell and the rest crushed this arc, and I am just so impressed by this. Wasteland is and was amazing. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Sean M. Thompson Jul 17, 2013

    You're down there in the streets with the agents, and you feel their fear, you can sense their outrage and disgust. Not to mention his scale work is phenomenal. Mutated humans are much larger than us, and you know this because of Campbell's fantastic proportional work. 8.5 Manages to tie into the Abyss of Time arc.Art is great, large in scale, great facial expressions, and scary beasties.Writing makes you feel for the agents, and survivors.How many times can one be expected to react to, in essence, the same story?

    Unleash The Fanboy - Daniel Alvarez Jul 18, 2013

    Overall, a solid finisher to Wasteland. This issue is filled with a tense atmosphere and some great action. B.P.R.D. continues to be one of the best horror/sci fi books on the stands, definitely worth adding to your pull list. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Sean A. Guynes Jul 16, 2013

    B.P.R.D. #109 is another fine addition to the Mignolaverse narrative, strong in horror-comic artistry and hitting home with a dead mother and a mysterious new character. Read Full Review

    Read Comic Books - Joey Caswell Jul 17, 2013

    The latest installment in the B.P.R.D. saga was one of the most exciting issues from this series in a while. The deeper story built upon in the preceding issues of Wasteland was concluded in a very satisfying way, and a potential new plot direction has been thrown wide open leading to plenty of anticipation for future stories involving agent Howards. The artwork by Laurence Campbell fits this book so well; it would be terrific to see him in the Hellboy universe again sometime. Although this issue may not be particularly easy to follow for readers unfamiliar with the series, those of us who follow the exploits of the B.P.R.D. regularly got a real gem in issue #109.

    Major Spoilers - Danielle Luaulu Jul 21, 2013

    Having read the previous installments of this story arc, I was kind of expecting a bit more of a payoff that just didn't come at the end. It wasn't a bad story, as it had it's interesting parts (like the reemergence of Howards), but I was left with a kind of bland taste in my mouth after reading it. While the art was good, I felt that the writers got a little sloppy when depicting a child and what a child would realistically do in a world gone to hell. Read Full Review

    . . $3.50, 22pgs. Minimal ADs. C- cover due to banner & excessive title. . . Another great issue of BPRD gives us a killer conclusion to the current 3-part "wasteland" arc. This issue, and the current series, picks up the action and reveals just how bad the world has become. The writing is very good, delivering quality characters, dialog and pace. The artwork, form top to bottom, is really growing on me to the point that i could enjoy this as BPRD style for a long time to come. If your not reading BPRD, and the Mignolaverse in general, you may be missing out on the best cohesive mini-verse on the market.
