Sixteen years after its first appearance in Hellboy: Seed of Destruction, is the frog menace over at last? A rogue mission to the center of the earth leaves the B.P.R.D. with a lot to answer for -- and uncertain fates for their most terrifying enemies -- as the longest-running plot in the Hellboy line wraps up. * King of Fear concludes the Scorched Earth trilogy!

    This was not my favorite issue of B.P.R.D. Its definitely a cut above most other comics on the stands--it is a Mignolaverse book after all--but King of Fear #5 ultimately fails to offer a completely satisfying conclusion to the War on Frogs cycle. Neither poorly written nor poorly drawn, the conclusion to King of Fear seems nonetheless handicapped by virtue of its inclusion in the ongoing industry-wide effort to continuously and artificially inject perfect jumping-on points into otherwise cohesive and engaging serials.
