    Comic Bastards - Jordan North Aug 21, 2013

    Being a reader of Mignola's Abe Sapien title I've never felt more like these two books are connected than in this issue, where Abe usually favors a more intimate approach to the disaster and those that inhabit the world after it, BPRD tends to focus on a team and scale things on a city-wide level. This issue of B.P.R.D. gives us the best of both worlds mixing those types of moments. The continuity established here is impressive and I look forward to more refreshing departures from the established framework and storytelling experimentation. Read Full Review

    Overall, Lake of Fire is off to a great start. The story is engaging from start to finish, I think this could be the best B.P.R.D. arc in awhile. Read Full Review

    It's a rock solid issue with unclear motivations, but it is still a high quality issue of B.P.R.D. Read Full Review

    If you've been feeling burnt out on B.P.R.D. or are looking to get into the series I actually recommend this book as a good jumping on point for new readers and a pretty solid fresh start for old fans like me getting tired of having to dig out all our old B.P.R.D. back issues every time a new issue is released, consider this one recommended.

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Aug 21, 2013

    It's also a comic book that makes me pine for more adventures of "Frankenstein: Agent of S.H.A.D.E." "B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth" seems to be a good choice as a surrogate to that title. I'll have to stick it out a bit, do a little research, take a few notes to keep characters straight, but that's testament to the complexity of the world Mignola and Arcudi construct. This isn't a great issue for new readers, but it is enjoyable, with good character vignettes and solid plot construction that seeds plenty more story to come. I just hope the learning curve for this newbie lightens up a bit in the issues ahead. Read Full Review

    . . $3.50, 22pgs + 4pg Prv. Solid B cover. All ADs@back! . . . Finally Liz returns for her first full arc since the end of the War on Frogs. Its about time since we have only seen the barest of glimpses of her in too long. Still she is not the same Liz and is just recovering from a near death experience. Hopefully she will be up and at 'em soon. This issue is especially good due to the strings that are starting to come together. Specifically Abe, Liz and Fenix in a way unique to the Mignolaverse. In no way do you need to read all the titles, but if you do you will get a greater feel for the world-building and characters. A fantastic title and a good time to jump on for lapsed readers.
