Publisher Comments:

Abe Sapien follows a strange clue to the jungles of Indonesia and a secret society with connections to Abe's past life during the American Civil War. Meanwhile, Liz's apocalyptic visions have begun to escalate, and Johann makes a startling discovery about a member of the Bureau. Written by John Arcudi and Hellboy and B.P.R.D. creator Mike Mignola, and drawn by Guy Davis, Garden of Souls offers a window into the bizarre backstory of Abe Sapien and his colleagues in the mysterious Oannes Society - complete with Victorian cyborgs, doomsday devices, and a very well preserved mummy.

Review:

"This latest spinoff from Mignola's Hellboy franchise continues the high level of modern Weird Tales — influenced chills and adventure and at times even manages to outstrip its source in chronicling the exploits of the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense. More details of amphibious investigator Abe Sapien's murky origins fall into place as he answers a mysterious call to Indonesia, an invitation that brings him into direct confrontation with a cabal of dabblers in the dark arts whose machinations could spell the death of millions. As Abe unravels their sinister plot, he encounters many bizarre characters and situations, including robots, genetically manipulated hybrid creatures and perhaps the most charming mummy ever to grace the horror genre. Meanwhile, the ghostly visitations of B.P.R.D. fire-starter Liz Sherman escalate into hellish premonitions of a world dominated by misshapen monstrosities, and disembodied medium Johann Krauss makes a potentially ominous discovery about another team member. As per usual with this highly diverting series, the pacing is brisk, the artwork is quite appealing and rife with detail that effortlessly blends modern and retro aesthetics" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Ron Williams, February 13, 2010 (view all comments by Ron Williams)
The BPRD series is a spin off featuring every other character of the Hellboy Universe. While overseen and heavily influenced by Mike Mignola, it is written and drawn by various other artists and writers that Mignola has chosen for the series. Many times, this would be a warning, but with BPRD, the stories and art are fantastic, creative and very clever. If you're a fan of Hellboy, but haven't ventured into the BPRD stories, you definitely should. It's more than worth your time.
