    A terrific conclusion to a three part tale that shows that modern horror in comics is led by the B.P.R.D. Recommended. Read Full Review

    The B.P.R.D. team deliver another solid book. While the story could be stronger, the art is outstanding as always in this series. We're nearing the end of the Hell on Earth cycle so there's not a lot we know about the direction this is going to take moving forward but I hope we'll be able to see Ashley again soon.

    Like any good mystery the big reveal is satisfying and interesting. The main character gets to throw down with one hell of an evil beast too, but it does suffer from a lot of dialogue and no scene (or locale) changes. Read Full Review

    This is a really simple issue that really doesn’t contribute all too much to the overall story arc. The only thing that might move things forward is when Ashley says she might go back to the B.P.R.D. This comic has a really eerie tone to it, which is typical of the Hellboy franchise’s books. It truly does depict Hell on Earth, but it’s contained. Nothing too chaotic happened, so I’m kind of bummed about that. The creative team, however, did a fantastic job with this issue’s execution, so I’m pretty happy. For any and all fans of Hellboy and the B.P.R.D., this is a must-read. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Matthew Strackbein Jun 16, 2016

    Although this series arc wraps with the 3rd installment, its unclear what lies ahead for Agent Ashley Strode. Will she reunite with the B.P.R.D. and continue the fight on a global scale, or will she remain a one-woman army fighting demons on the street level? Will she continue to master the craft of exorcism or has she learned all there is to know? One thing is for sure, if its a B.P.R.D. book, then you can count on lots more mayhem before its all over, not to mention new mysterious with each revelation. Hopefully, teasing the end of Hell on Earth doesnt mean ending B.P.R.D. if only because these characters are just too rich with lots of story potential left to tell. Read Full Review

    Excellent art and a problematic script lead to a very uneven issue, especially in terms of characterization. Read Full Review

    BPRD and Abe Sapien are often titles that have ambiguous stories where the meaning has to be carefully teased out. This arc has been the opposite -- everything is shown in the art and then explained in the word balloons, often redundantly. What's this doing in the middle of the careening Hell on Earth finale?
