The Hellboy universe has really been moving and grooving recently such as the death of title character Hellboy in ‘Hellboy: The Fury #3’. In this latest chapter of the B.P.R.D. (Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense) we find scientists who had discovered a Russian mine which doubles as a graveyard of slime covered horrors. Characters Dr. Kate Corrigan and the ghost in the plastic man bubble Johann are sent to Russia where citizens who spontaneity mutate are the norm.
It was wonderful seeing artist Tyler Crook‘s (B.P.R.D. Monsters and The Sixth Gun) work here which captures the original Hellboy charm which Mike Mignola (Hellboy and B.P.R.D.) originally introduced to fans of big red back in the day. Mignola and John Arcudi (The Mask and Major Bummer) brings us a terrific story here that hits the nail on the board on all points.
I can’t way to see what Russia holds for the B.P.R.D. agents in this story by Mignola and Arcudi. If you’re new to the whole B.P.R.D. thing this is a perfect jumping on point for fans of Mignola, Hellboy, or just looking for something awesome and weird to read.
