Meh - move on to Vol 3,
This review is from: B.P.R.D. Volume 2: The Soul of Venice & Other Stories: Soul of Venice and Other Stories v. 2 (Paperback)
This is a collection of one off BPRD stories, mostly not by Mike Mignola, many entirely missing the mark in getting the Hellboy/BPRD atmosphere right, with variable art. There are some that are OK to good, but a few which are, well, disappointing.
Not as nearly as good as volume 1, but don't be put off because Volumes 3 and 4 (with Mignola back on writting duties) are much better. Buy if you're a completest, but otherwise move on to Vol 3.

I would agree that this collection is weak compared to what goes before and after, but there are some incidents that contribute to the continuity as well as some great incidents and panels. Much of the pleasure of the series is following the characters and their interplay, so on balance I would recommend folk get this one, but be aware volume three is far stronger.
