4.0 out of 5 stars Greater depth 29 May 2010
By John Platt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Consider this volume a breather. It provides some greater depth and understanding of the ongoing conflict in the BPRD series and how it affects the characters we have come to know and love. It's not essential reading for the bigger story, but it's effective and well done.
2.0 out of 5 stars Not worth a look 1 Mar 2014
By Surferofromantica - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Probably the weakest BPRD collection, it gathers five separate tales of frog-fighting, agenda-driven, and in some cases fairly strange. It steps back from the Scorched Earth storyline, showing a time when Benjamin Daimio and Roger the Homunculus were still on the BPRD. The first tale is a return to Cavendish Hall to dispose of the two Cavendish brothers, the original frogs. Not a bad story, but nothing special either (and, given the importance of the original frog episode, perhaps treating them a bit lightly). Strange frog love. Chapter 2 shows a strange tent revival with a little girl faith healer being a frog witch, and eventually prey for a crazed Benjamin Daimio. Chapter 3 is a sort of Alien-like story, about a single frog creature taking down a squad of BPRD guys one by one, it’s probably also the best tale in the book, even though it doesn’t have even one of the main BPRD characters participating directly – it’s one for the grunts. Oh well… Chapter 4 has Kraus investigating where the souls of dead frog creatures go. Great art, and amazing fuzzed-out coloring, totally trippy… The last tale is a sensitive one, about a female BPRD agent who idolizes Liz Sherman. Great sketches at the end, including a few nice ones of Liz. Next.
4.0 out of 5 stars Good but mostly filler 21 Mar 2013

This book was pretty good, but it didn't really advance the BPRD story any. It was just a few specific battles from the war, and it all takes place before the previous few books.
3.0 out of 5 stars Background Tales 28 Dec 2011
By David - Published on Amazon.com
Mignola, etc., began the war on frogs storyline in the third book. This war consists of Lovecraftian beings who have released spores into Earth that turn humans into shape-shifting frog creatures dedicated to returning the world to the old gods. I find my enjoyment of these kinds of graphic novels very dependent on how much I enjoy the villains. I find the frogs as interesting as zombies, and I am bored and repulsed by zombies. I only like the frog stories when they had up front more interesting protagonists than them - i.e., Memnan Saa - or awe-inspiring images of what the end of the world might look like: i.e., The Black Flame.

I was reminded in the first story of a change I didn't like. Roger's body might have died during the frog wars but his character's interest died when he was changed from a gentle questioning child-like being into a Daimio clone. I was glad that during his investigation of the frog war's ground zero he showed some of his old humanity.

The frogs are among other things religious zealots in the service of gods, so they could pose as tent evangelists devoted to healing and conversion with very little hypocrisy. Ben Daimio expressed the thought that may get me into hell: this world isn't so bad as it to make him wish for a better one.

I liked the third story best, a monster-in-the-dark-picking-people-off tale. These men are soldiers and at least one of them gets to be a hero as well as a victim.

As with Roger, I like Johann Kraus better when he is in his original role, as a disembodied medium, as opposed to being an action hero in Killing Ground and The Black Goddess (and his heroics didn't turn out well for him, did they?) Here Kraus leads frog ghosts into their light, and learns that their heaven resembles his hell. Huh. Their heaven may be his hell.

I have wondered how Liz would have developed as a character if she hadn't been delivered to Memnan Saa by the writers. I am ticked off to see that she might have had a sexy girl friend. I would that more interesting than constant moping.
4.0 out of 5 stars Any fan of the BPRD will enjoy this collection. 12 July 2010

Each issue adds a little something to the mythology of the War on Frogs. The art is varried do to each issue having a different artist but they all look great and fit into the BPRD universe. Well worth owning.
