Unless anyone has forgotten, it's 2012, the last year before the final farewell (for those who believe in an upcoming end of days). And the team over at DarkHorse Comics is putting the Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense through their paces.





Lot's of solicits from now til summer, but THIS has been building for some time now, and I am looking forward to the resolution of this conflict.

And as usual, in the BPRD universe, there is no reset button.



B.P.R.D. HELL ON EARTH: THE LONG DEATH #1

"A B.P.R.D. task force is assembled to solve a new series of disappearances in the deadly woods from New World. As the team works together to find the monster responsible, tensions arise over one another's loyalties!”



B.P.R.D. HELL ON EARTH: THE LONG DEATH #2

"Agent Johann Kraus, the ectoplasmic man, leads a special task force through monster-filled northwestern woods packed with mangled campers in order to hunt and kill the man he blames for the host body he lost in Killing Ground.



B.P.R.D. HELL ON EARTH: THE LONG DEATH #3

"In a frozen camp full of slaughtered agents, two monstrous, long-running characters go head to head in a life-and-death battle!”

Were-Jaguar God vs. Wendigo!!!

I absolutely agree with this. Mignola, with a property less than what, twenty years old, has shown more ability to stick to his guns and see a storyline - even the death of his biggest character - through to the end. It's showing more balls and more guts than either of the big two, frankly, because he's willing to develop. He's willing to explore stuff that he wouldn't be able to otherwise. And everything seems so well thought out. I don't think I've ever seen anything that remotely resembles a retcon in one of the books.

And I also love the variety and diversity of the threats they encounter, and how Mignola is utterly willing to turn what could just be another recurring Doctor Doom-style villain in Rasputin into a chump, basically, rather than tell the same old stories with him over and over. Progression might not work with everyone, but the Big Two could really learn some lessons from him.
