The Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defence (B. P. R. D.) faces a new threat to the world. Dangerous and deadly creatures roam the earth. We are introduced to new characters along the way.
We learn more in-depth information about each character, and the characters develop nicely.
The art is outstanding. The storyline is interesting with good dialogue, but the story really unfolds with what is left unsaid.
Mike Mignola is known for the popular Hellboy series, and the writing in this collection is beyond entertaining. However, I would expect nothing less from Mignola. He’s an absolute pro when it comes to graphic novels. He never disappoints.
It’s 408 pages of comic book / graphic novel pleasure.
I was sent Hell on Earth Volume One to review and I thought that would be fun and a way to get back in touch with the series. The last MM-verse book I read was his love letter to Hammer Horror, "Mr. Higgins Comes Home" and enjoyed it, so I assumed I would enjoy this as well.
I didn't. I loved it. In many ways the apocalypse is exactly what BPRD needed to make it interesting and relevant again. They're not only fighting foul beasties, but each other, various governments and humanities. In many ways, the inter-personal relationships between characters has never been better and it reminded me a lot of the old JLI series, but without the humour. The characters are so well definied, you almost forget it is the end of the world.
A lot happens in this mammoth hardcover, which re-collects the first three TPBs and some extras. I enjoyed seeing Abe take center stage for a while, along with learning what happened to Liz, the craziness of what is going on in Russia and the return of the Wendigo, one of my favorite monsters. This was so good it convinced me to preorder the second hard cover and purchase the first of the three hardcover Abe Sapien collections and I don't regret a thing. I'm really glad I had the chance to pick this up as it has brought me full-fold back into the Hellboy universe and I wish I had never strayed.
