Hell has come to earth. Battles are raging across the world and BPRD is now under federal jurisdiction. Liz Sherman and Hellboy are still missing in action, leaving Abe and the rest of the team to continue on their work...and spread themselves thin. In one town Abe discovers that people are missing. Vanishing suddenly without a trace...and one woman seems to be at the center of it all. In other areas of the world the team continues to battle the creatures that are appearing and dealing with the public backlash. It's a changed world and only BPRD can protect us.

First of all I have to say I haven't caught up on Hellboy...and that definitely affects the reading of the story as I have no idea what happened in the rain of frogs or who some of the characters are or their relationships with each other. It makes it a bit confusing in some places, but that's not necessarily the fault of the story just that you have to have some of the backstory. The overall story though is quite excellent and once you get past not knowing who some of the characters is quite easy to follow and get caught up in the excitement and the mystery. And it's nice to see Abe take the lead and show some anger. Mignolia shows us entirely new worlds, but makes them ones that we can easily understand and grasp--even though they are often so different.

If you're an avid Hellboy/BPRD fan then this is definitely the book for you. If you're like me and a bit behind go ahead and read it, but be prepared for a bit of confusion of the characters.

Having not read the complete B.P.R.D. works and only made it through half of Hellboy I was a bit lost about the background of certain characters. Abe Sapien for example comes off as angry and unhinged, which stands in contrast to the calm demeanor seen in his solo series, Hellboy, and the films. That being said the story still managed to keep my interest with some original tales. I think the book is best suited for someone that has read B.P.R.D., but it also serves as a good introductory into the world of Hellboy as well.

Format: Paperback
The first Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defence (BPRD) cycle finished with "Vol 14: King of Fear" and the second one starts anew with "BPRD, Hell on Earth 1: New World". While the first cycle more or less became concentrated on the "Plague of Frogs" storyline, this series purports to be about something else - but what?

From the looks of it, its BPRD business as usual. A Lovecraftian monster is up to no good and the BPRD set out to stop it. Abe Sapien and Johann Kraus are led by Kate Corrigan, acting head of BPRD while Manning's elsewhere, and they're joined by an ancient poltergeist called Panya. Liz Sherman is still missing and Hellboy's off doing his own thing.

So apart from a big scary monster stealing souls of ordinary townfolk in the Pacific North West, there's not much of a storyline going on here nor any hints on where this series is headed. Overall there isn't much here for any long-time fans of the series to sink their teeth into, and at the end I felt kind of bored by a very average effort from the usually great team of Mike Mignola/ John Arcudi/ Guy Davis. It'd be interesting to see where this series is going but don't expect much from this disappointing first book in the new BPRD series.

Having finally defeated the Plague of Frogs, the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense has gone public in a big way. They've even been commandeered by the United Nations, which is a very mixed blessing. Sure they have more funding, but instead of choosing what occurrences they will investigate, they now have to investigate everything, everywhere. The agents are stretched out across the globe investigating every subterranean monster that pops up as well as every freak volcano that erupts where it shouldn't (sorry, readers from Houston, but your city is wiped out).

Dr. Kate Corrigan is left in charge of the B.P.R.D. and tries her best to keep the team together. Abe Sapien is off investigating the Pacific Northwest, where he discovers a monster that has been stripping small towns of their populations. Out in the woods, he finds an old friend who helps unravel the mystery and explain the unthinkable horror that has descended upon them.

The book mostly follows Abe's exploits, though the internal dramas at the Headquarters are followed as a b-story, presumably setting up future story arcs and conflicts. The horror is delivered both on the psychological level and on the visual level, with Cthulhu-esque monsters prowling around the globe. I'm ready to see more of the gang picking up the pieces in the aftermath of near-world destruction by the frogs. Send more quick!
