A layover on a remote island drops Hellboy into a web of intrigue involving government secrets and foreign agents waging their own cold war over a weapon that might be right up the BPRD's alley. In England Bruttenholm uncovers more secrets, indicating a worldwide supernatural conflict about to boil over.

"The art by Brian Churilla was a real shining star. Not only because of his ability to use artistic metaphors, but in his ability to capture Hellboy in his art."-Bounding into Comics

    A story smoothly presenting characters and problems combined with visuals that create an authentic and fanciful past make this perfect reading. Two continents of supernatural delights for readers to be swallowed by. Recommended. Read Full Review

    A promising start to a new arc, but with some problematic character continuity issues. Hopefully "Hellboy and the B.P.R.D." can tighten things up going forward. Read Full Review

    Given the amount of cutting back and forth into established and ongoing subplots, isn't it about time Dark Horse started numbering this according to the "in a series" number on the credits page? The abrupt segues into scenes with Bruttenholm and Sandhu make no sense as part of a "first issue".
