A great jumping on point for people wanting to enter the world of B.P.R.D.
B.P.R.D. HELL ON EARTH: RUSSIA #1
Story: Mike Mignola & John Arcudi
Art: Tyler Crook
Colours: Dave Stewart
Letters: Clem Robbins
Cover: Dave Johnson
This start of a new story is a excellent paced comic which both creates a new case and also gives some backstory as well. Two of the B.P.R.D., Kate and Johann head to Russia to help with a problem that is starting to grow. Here they meet up with their opposite numbers in the Russian version of the Bureau.
We start with a discovery in Russia that sets off a chain of events still to come but there is still time for humour here with the Russians displaying some comedic moments.
The story is engaging and the art is colorful and well drawn. This should please fans old and new of the B.P.R.D.
A graveyard of mutated horror is uncovered deep inside a Russian mine. With Liz still missing and Abe Sapien lying on his deathbed, the newly international B.P.R.D. sends Kate and Johann to meet the Russian equivalent of the Bureau–which readers first saw in B.P.R.D.: 1946–and face an exploding fungus monster at the Kremlin, and a spreading contagion.
