    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Feb 4, 2015

    Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.: 1952 #3 is a fast moving adventure yarn that understands the boundless realm of the supernatural. With a solid cast, worthy text and the fact that I'm absorbed by the world of the B.P.R.D. as it existed in 1952 it's no wonder that this comes highly recommended. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Dennis Burns Feb 5, 2015

    What can be said about Alex Maleev's artwork that hasn't been written before? His expressiveline work and use of shadow make the sleepy town in Brazil look bothdepressing and ominous; a perfect balance for Hellboy's first mission outside of the B.P.R.D.'s walls. I have been aching for more Maleev in my life since the end of his run on Moon Knight, and this newest miniseries does notdisappoint in the slightest. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Tyler Goulet Feb 9, 2015

    Once again, Hellboy and the BPRD shines and it provides just enough Hellboy to continue the long stretch until we get another Hellboy in Hell issue. Hellboy as a character will never grow tiresome, because theres just so much depth to this character and his history. These guys make it look easy, but once again Mignola and crew have another winner on their hands. There's not a better time to get into the world of Hellboy and the Mignolaverse. Read Full Review

    I just really, really enjoy this book. It continues to feel like a perfect hybrid of "B.P.R.D." and classic Hellboy, and it's just a hell of a lot of fun. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Feb 4, 2015

    For the most part, Hellboy And The B.P.R.D. #3 is a well crafted issue by talented creators. It has a major problem with pacing, but on the whole I was entertained. The pieces are in place for an explosive finish and I am excited to see how Hellboy's first mission wraps up. Read Full Review
