Things are getting uglier in Brazil, folks. While the team is discovering more about the monsters plaguing the small town, we discover that someone on Hellboy’s team is kind of a jerk. In a big way. We’re in the thick of the story now and something tells me that the next couple of issues are going to be nonstop. There are revelations and consequences coming, guys!
While the team deals with the craziness aboveground, Hellboy meets a croc with an agenda (see the cover). This is no ordinary croc, and the croc knows exactly who – or what – Hellboy is. This scene is the most riveting in the book for me this month, drawing me in and leaving me checking my calendar to find out exactly when the next issue is out, because THERE ARE THINGS I NEED TO KNOW.
Alex Maleev’s artwork is brilliant, as usual. It’s moody, dark, and heavy with a sense of foreboding. You can feel the damp fear as you turn pages. Mignola and Arcudi are weaving us a Hellboy tale for the ages. This is the issue where it all starts coming together. Do not miss this when you pick up your books today, people.
Hellboy and the BPRD: 1952 #3 is out today. Get your copy tonight, it won’t be there by week’s end. Don’t believe me? Let the art do the talking.
