    B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth #120 is a superb romp that proves that even with a seemingly innocuous premise that the creative team and this title still have more than a few tricks up their sleeves. Needless to say it easily comes recommended. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Zack Roberts Jun 17, 2014

    With the intensity of B.P.R.D. and its huge overarching narrative of Hell on Earth, the way Mignola chooses to break up the series by placing smaller arcs, of 2-3 issues, between the larger 5 issue runs makes it easier to follow. It makes it easier to relax and enjoy the stories unfolding as opposed to becoming a hard, labor of love to endure marathon that it could easily be. As always, there are points in this issue, as there will be in the concluding chapter next month, that will be picked up later on; but it is doing so in a way that is enjoyable without being too heavy.

    That is the general takeaway from this issue: Anticipation for what is to come. One almost envies a future trade reader who will be able to simply flip the page and see what's next. But that anticipation also elevates the sense of dread and heightens the horror: well worth checking out. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Joey Caswell Jun 18, 2014

    The latest installment of B.P.R.D. was yet another incredible addition to this always-amazing series. This particular issue felt quite different from the more recent story arcs which preceded it, but it was a great change of pace that resulted in an immensely enjoyable reading experience. Even though this is only the first part of the Devils Wings arc, it seems as though its already safe to say its a shame this one will be a short two issues. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Chris Bennett Jun 17, 2014

    With a few cameos that will make the fans happy, a plot point at the end that will make for an interesting arc, and a nice jumping on issue for new readers, this issue hits all the marks even if it is a little slow at getting going. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Brian Salvatore and David Harper Jun 18, 2014

    Even though I have lots of questions, I did really enjoy this issue. It was a weird one that gave us a taste of the next arc, and it started weaving in some of the big guns by the end, but really, it reminds me of Killing Ground. That's one of my all-time favorite B.P.R.D. arcs, and I like the idea that they aren't even safe in their own home base. They do a remarkable job of instilling that feeling in us as readers, and it also is an excellent character study at the same time (solid money on O'Donnell saving the day). Read Full Review

    Front Towards Gamer - Lido Jun 20, 2014

    On the whole I would definitely recommend this issue of B.P.R.D. It's a breath of fresh air change from the doomsday tedium the series had descended into and really reminds you of the potential this concept has to it. The artwork is amazing and creates a truly foreboding atmosphere of dread and horror to the story. It's also surprisingly new reader friendly as no one ends up so wedded to past character continuity that they can't be enjoyed as just individuals, there's nothing about them that would come off as alienating or difficult to understand except some stuff with Fenix that shakes out to be pretty inconsequential, here's hoping the next part is just as good.

    This 2-parter will be short and sweet, made all the better by it actually being TWO stories in one. The primary being a long overdue focus on Kate Corrigan that promises serious developments. The other features the old crazy researcher as our 'crypt-keeper', if you will, uncovering a lost tale of young HellBoy and BPRD boss Trevor Bruttenholm! I can already see that this mini will be better crafted then some recent BPRD arcs, and probably more rewarding. Possibly a great jumping on point for new & lapsed readers!
