    I think one of the things that I really like about this comic is that it shows that even when you think you've survived the biggest threat there could possibly be" there is always work to be done and sometimes that work may prove to be even more challenging that the threat you originally got through.

    The characters are beginning to converge for the fate of humanity after its greatest threat has been thwarted. This is not going to end well for several individuals. The story is gripping and the visuals create an unrelenting air of hopelessness. A compelling read for those that have been following the exploits of the B.P.R.D. Read Full Review

    B.P.R.D. The Devil You Know #1 may be a first issue, and a damn strong one, but it feels more like B.P.R.D. #148 than anything else. More than almost any Mignola-verse comic before it, The Devil You Know #1 is a story that expects a fairly expansive baseline knowledge from readers starting at the very first page. Read Full Review

    The Devil You Know kicks off another bold and dramatic chapter and is a great read for fans and best enjoyed during a rainy night with plenty of lightning in the background. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Jul 28, 2017

    Now I would not jump on this if I had never read a Hellboy story before; because, yes, then you would be totally lost. Having that basic knowledge of what the BPRD organization is is essential. Other than that you can totally jump on this story and have an enjoyable reading experience. This issue feels like the first 30 minutes of a good movie. We have a lot of stuff happening, and I am not really sure what is going on, but I cannot wait to see where the story takes me! Read Full Review

    After the fallout from "Hell on Earth" the Bureau's dynamic is pretty shaken up, but it's good to have "B.P.R.D." back. Read Full Review
