Guy Davis has been penciling B.P.R.D. for years now. A change would be welcome. It’s not that
Mignola and Arcudi's decision to draw Daimio’s story into the occult history of the Pacific theater is a welcome development. Some of Mignola’s best material (visually and thematically) is his pulpy interpretation of the real-life Nazi fascination with the occult. Now, Mignola and Arcudi finally try their hands at the Japanese side of WWII. Bravo, boys.
Years of vague, Lovecraftian mysteries surrounding the origins of Abe Sapien are finally addressed in this issue. Abe still can’t remember his past, but his friends remember him, and something about their warm welcome is unsettling.
Worth the money? Yes, because the layout is still great, and the usual Mignola atmosphere is there.
