About the Author
Mike Mignola's fascination with ghosts and monsters began at an early age; reading Dracula at age twelve introduced him to Victorian literature and folklore, from which he has never recovered. Starting in 1982 as a bad inker for Marvel Comics, he swiftly evolved into a not-so-bad artist. By the late 1980s, he had begun to develop his own unique graphic style, with mainstream projects like Cosmic Odyssey and Batman: Gotham by Gaslight. In 1994, he published the first Hellboy series through Dark Horse. There are thirteen Hellboy graphic novels (with more on the way), several spinoff titles (B.P.R.D., Lobster Johnson, Abe Sapien, and Sir Edward Grey: Witchfinder), prose books, animated films, and two live-action films starring Ron Perlman. Along the way he worked on Francis Ford Coppola's film Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992), was a production designer for Disney's Atlantis: The Lost Empire (2001), and was the visual consultant to director Guillermo del Toro on Blade II (2002), Hellboy (2004), and Hellboy II: The Golden Army (2008). Mike's books have earned numerous awards and are published in a great many countries. Mike lives in Southern California with his wife, daughter, and cat. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From the looks of it, its BPRD business as usual. A Lovecraftian monster is up to no good and the BPRD set out to stop it. Abe Sapien and Johann Kraus are led by Kate Corrigan, acting head of BPRD while Manning's elsewhere, and they're joined by an ancient poltergeist called Panya. Liz Sherman is still missing and Hellboy's off doing his own thing.
So apart from a big scary monster stealing souls of ordinary townfolk in the Pacific North West, there's not much of a storyline going on here nor any hints on where this series is headed. Overall there isn't much here for any long-time fans of the series to sink their teeth into, and at the end I felt kind of bored by a very average effort from the usually great team of Mike Mignola/ John Arcudi/ Guy Davis. It'd be interesting to see where this series is going but don't expect much from this disappointing first book in the new BPRD series.
Twisty plotting, exciting storylines, interesting characters, and rough - almost crude - yet effective art (in places, reminiscent of woodcuts) drives the stories forward and has me, for one, wondering what on (or in, under or above) earth is going to happen next.
And I never trusted Panya, so I'm vindicated to see that she does indeed seem to be up to no good. What happens next? We'll just have to wait and see!
