Beneath the treacherous South Seas and under a ravaged monastery,
Abe Sapien and the other weird agents of the Bureau for Paranormal
Research and Defence (BPRD) uncover homesick bones, mad science
and the junkyard at the centre of the Earth...
Earth & Other Stories takes
a sideways look at the Hellboy universe. But, instead
of having Hellboy as the central character, this collection
follows the other members of BPRD as they go about uncovering
supernatural events - a little like Big Foot and the Lochness
Monster solving cases on The X-Files.
collection of stories gathered are entertaining enough, but
without a major appearance from Hellboy there isn't the same
dynamics amongst the other characters.
artwork is incredibly well constructed - the guest artists
have managed to capture Mignola's style (which itself borrows
from the late Polish artist Stanislav Szukalski) perfectly.
And the stories are well plotted.
you have all of the Hellboy collections then this is
must. But newcomers to his world may feel a little confused
as to what is going on.
