Hellboy is gone, and the B.P.R.D. managed to fight off the monsters on earth long enough for humanity to just barely escape underground, but Edward Grey must return to Hell to confront a familiar foe and finish what needs to be done to truly save the world. Continuing after B.P.R.D.: The Devil You Know ended in 2019, this one-shot is written and drawn completely by Mignola with colorist Dave Stewart, featuring a cover by Mignola and Stewart. A full issue written and drawn solely by Mignola!

    Impulse Gamer - Chris O'Connor Dec 14, 2021

    Fantastic to see what has happened since the events of The Devil You Know and certainly fascinating to see it from Sir Edward Grey's perspective. Obviously I recommend this highly! I only feel a little guilty that I may have been visibly more excited about the teaser at the end than I was for this issue itself. This issue is absolutely a must buy" but I was not expecting what is teased and am looking forward to what is to come! Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Dec 2, 2021

    Sir Edward Grey: Acheron reads like a story that has marinated in mythical tales and Greek lore for decades and is only now finally ready for comic book consumption. It's a work that feels etched out of stone and filled with as much knowledge and history as a rock with secrets to tell. Sir Edward Grey: Acheron is a magnificently drawn one-shot rich in the mythical atmosphere that is its background. Read Full Review

    Sir Edward Grey: Acheron #1 is a haunting look at one of the most mysterious beings of the Hellboy universe, and marks Mike Mignola's return to writing and illustrating comics. Hopefully, this is only the beginning of a resurgence, as I'm happy to read anything Mignola puts on the page whether it's Hellboy related or not. Read Full Review
