B.P.R.D. The Devil You Know Vol. 1: Messiah
Mike Mignola & Scott Allie, story; Laurence Campbell, art; Dave Stewart, colors
Dark Horse Comics, 2018

The Mignolaverse can be daunting: when I was buying monthly issues it sometimes felt like being a Batman fan: one miniseries or another seemed to come out almost every week. So I'm catching up with the fallout from the "Hell On Earth" story line. At first glance, things don't look very different. There are still monsters everywhere, and the Bureau is busy on cleanup missions. It's so widespread that there are three "monster maps" in the Sketchbook section depicting the problems. The worst thing has to be that England is completely missing: there's no sign of the land mass at all. Strange cults have sprung up, and the demon Varvara (disguised as a little Russian girl) has emerged to lead them. The Bureau lost Kate Corrigan, Johann and Panya in the battle. But the good news is that Abe Sapien has returned from his self-imposed exile to help the newly-powered Liz Sherman (she can fly now) in the fight. Satan is dead, Hell is closed, and Varvara begins establishing a new Hell on Earth with Manhattan as home base. And in Colorado Liz uncovers a coffin containing Hellboy's corpse.
