As a longtime Mike Mignola fan (I've been collecting the single issue Hellboy since the beginning, as well as Mignola's other works), I'm slowing coming to the belief that BPRD is currently the better than the current Hellboy title.

It's understandable that the B.P.R.D. is preoccupied with death. In the previous volume, "The Black Flame," almost 2,000 people died in a confrontation with the monster god Katha-Hem, and one of the victims was very dear to the misfit heroes of the Bureau. So the conversation back at headquarters takes a gloomy turn as Abe, Daimio, Liz and Johann recount individual experiences with death that shaped their lives (Whoa! Daimio's face was bitten off by a nun!). During this coffee klatch, Kate Corrigan travels to a cursed village in France to bargain with a Mephistophelean collector for a book that could hold the blueprint for resurrection. Coz in comic books, every character comes back from the dead. Or do they? It's nice to see Hellboy back with his Bureau buddies, even if it is just a flashback, and it's an even bigger treat to have Mike Mignola himself handle the artwork for a very touching coda and bittersweet farewell to a friend.

As a longtime Mike Mignola fan (I've been collecting the single issue Hellboy since the beginning, as well as Mignola's other works), I'm slowing coming to the belief that BPRD is currently the better than the current Hellboy title. I was very disappointed that Mignola wasn't illustrating BPRD when it first got going. But I've been seduced by Guy Davis' artwork. The more I look at Davis' compositions the more I like it. The stories here in BPRD seem to be consistently a bit stronger than the current Hellboy story lines. The collaborative effort in this title seems to be it's strength. This is a fine collection that recounts the teams effort to save a team mate from death. Excellent all around. Strongly recommended.

I love this graphic novel series. This particular book was delivered a little damaged that I had not anticipated based on the condition rating.

I wasn't very satisfied with the BPRD stories, as as I didn't find anything in Volume 1 or Volume 2 very interesting, but with later issues it just kept getting better and better - and this is a serious climax, if an unlikely one. It centers around a voyage by Kate Corrigan to recover an alchemical tome, and the mystery that she sinks into trying to do so; it's broken up by anecdotes from Benjamin Daimio, Abe Sapien, Liz Sherman and Johann Kraus that relate somehow to how they dealt with death. We get one of our our first looks at Kraus in his earlier former human form, Hellboy steps in (he's almost never seen in a BPRD adventure, even though he had been a non-stop BPRD member for both of the films), and Mike Mignola draws a few poignantly beautiful pages at the end! Wow!!

The book starts off with a carpet bombing that closes the door on The Black Flame story, and then Kate's journey to France, to a haunted village, an old book store, a strange book store owner, a BPRD flunky, and a descent into strangeness that unfolds with menacing horror. Corrigan seems like she's about to become a victim, before she shows her hand like a boss. Great! There are several truly classic scenes, one of which involves a wolf and a phonebook, another involves an amputated finger. Amazing how quickly tables can turn - the mystery is deep and intriguing, and you can see a sophisticated strategic battle being fought in this incredible repository of arcane books and objects. "MORE WIIIIIINE, MARQUIS?" Freaky demon battles tightly condensed. Amazing pacing, breathless stuff.

In comparison, the personal anecdotes that dot the story seem a bit inferior, but they are actually significant - the story of Benjamin Daimio's death (bloody guts, a werewolf nun biting his face off, Bolivian jaguar gods, wow!!), Johann Kraus' bizarre love confession of bad judgement and misbehavior ("You are too sad [for me] to hate."), Abe Sapien's adventure with Hellboy in Canada tracking a wendigo (a spooky, weird creature called Darryl), and a sad tale from Liz Sherman.

The coda at the end, a meeting between Kraus and Roger, is really beautiful, and the final panel is heartbreaking (and a reference to an earlier BPRD issue). Nice, very nice.
