After several weeks of waiting, I’m rather pleased that Dark Horse finally released a new issue in the “B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth” saga, The Return of the Master part 1. Thehe “Hell on Earth” event is starting to come to a head, and this issue shows that a lot more brooding trouble is on the way for the Bureau. “The Return of the Master” #1 contains some breakthrough plot advancements as well as a healthy supply of blood and violence, fitting in perfectly with the event.

The editor of Dark Horse Comics, Scott Allie, told Comics Allians their plans to begin numbering B.P.R.D. starting with #100, in order to stray from their “ongoing series of miniseries.” Starting things off at issue #100 will undoubtedly be confusing for comic shoppers who do not frequent online news sites, and it really adds to the whole fear-of-missing-out problem that is already predominant in comics. Scott Allie assures, however, that this is the right move for the series. Read on… READ MORE
And boom goes the dynamite! BPRD’s “Hell on Earth” saga strikes again with another kick ass story arc as the 2-part “Exorcism” comes to a blood pumping conclusion. I assumed that this issue would be faster paced than the first, which wasn’t too shabby to begin with. Of course, I was right. Story arc after story arc “B.P.R.D.” has delivers nonstop entertainment with quality story lines and consistently fabulous art. This issue opens the door for the “Hell on Earth” event to begin hitting climatic moments. READ MORE
Ron Perlman, who played Hellboy in the Guillermo del Toro film adaptations, teamed up with Spectral Motion in order to fulfill the wish of a young boy named Zachary as part of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. While fans may have been hoping that Perlman would don the costume once again for a new film, this is undeniably touching, and a testament to this man’s character. Zachary made a wish to both meet and become Dark Horse Comics’ famous red demon, and it has been granted. Check out the images of the meeting below. READ MORE

We are right in the middle of “Hell On Earth” and it’s everything we hoped it would be and more. The first issue of The Devil’s Engine got off to a bit of a slow start, but after taking a look at the monster infested preview for issue #2, it seems our psychic teen is about to encounter more than she can handle. Big teeth, Spidery legs, and a hungry belly. READ MORE
The first thing that popped into my head when reading Dark Horse Comics newest installment in the B.P.R.D. “Hell on Earth” event was, “finally”! A flash back to a time when crazy old Professor O’Donnell wasn’t crazy or old, allows for a refreshing story that finally brings back one of my favorite demonic heroes, Hellboy. Allie writes this book in a way that adds new meaning to the word creepy. If you thought “Pickens County Horror” was incredibly eerie, let’s just say a new champion has been crowned. This one shot issue is one of the best of “Hell on Earth” so far, with an eye opening reveal of O’Donnell’s past. READ MORE

Despite Mignola’s obsession with all supernatural monsters, vampires (perhaps the most famous of all monsters) have been far and few between in his works. However, in a recent discussion with CBR, Mignola spoke about his plans to change that in the BPRD Universe; the vampires are coming out of hiding. The “The Pickens County Horror” two-parter offered a glimpse into the vampire world of BPRD and next week’s “Transformation of J. H. O’Donnell” the bloodsuckers are back in full force to attack our favorite paranormal investigators. READ MORE
Dark Horse is back with another free motion comic, and this time they are bringing Mike Mognola’s infamous Hellboy series to life. “Hellboy: The Fury” is part of Dark Horse’s initiative, in partnership with Felicia Day’s Geek & Sundry Youtube channel, to deliver brand new motion comics that re-imagine some of their classic works. If you’ve never read the comics, this is a particularly good introduction for two reasons. First, it’s free. Second, you don’t actually have to read. The mini-series follows Hellboy and his war with the Queen of Blood. Check out all three parts below. READ MORE
Who doesn’t want to raise a little hell everyone once in a while? Mignola and Acrudi’s “Hell On Earth” event has been absolutely astounding so far. Every single title that has fallen under the “Hell on Earth” banner has been a definitive chapter in the BPRD universe, and things are just starting to heat up. The Devil Engine rushes in the second hitting of the event, and the BPRD crew find themselves caught between a rock and a hard place. Expect a lot more action, mayhem, and fury as the series culminates toward the return of the big red-horned devil we all love so much. 2012 is shaping up to be one hot year for Mignola et al. READ MORE
Something is definitely wrong in Pickens County, but the presence of a family of vampires is only the beginning! The two-part B.P.R.D. arc entitled “Pickens County Horror” comes to a thrilling and mysterious ending as agent Vaughn puts the FO in GTFO. I have a tickling sensation that this won’t be the last time we see the paranormal mushroom related activity in Mignola’s Hell on Earth event. READ MORE
As far as the comic realm goes I am relatively new to Hellboy let alone the BPRD books affiliated with the big red bastard. I’ve always been a huge fan of the del Toro films, but I just never got around to reading the source material. When I picked up Dark Horse’s newest BPRD series, BPRD Hell on Earth: The Long Death, I was devastated by the fact that I am so far behind the times! Why wasn’t I reading more of this earlier! Blood and gore galore (see what I did there?), a big mean cat-creature from hell, and the spectral wonder Johann Kraus; where could you go wrong? I think I’ve found my new obsession.

During a recent press conference for Festival International du Film Fantastique de Gérardmer 2012, Ron Perlman let drop that Hellboy 3 probably isn’t ever going to happen. Which kind of makes sense.
The Hellboy films are great, but they’re not enormous moneymakers (nor are they flops, they’re just not sure things). And Guillermo Del Toro’s dance card is extremely full of projects after he finishes Pacific Rim. The odds for the money and a willing studio being in place during the brief window of time Del Toro may have to make the film (whenever that may be) are kind of low.
Or, in the words of Perlman, “If I had to bet, I would bet there will be no Hellboy 3… It would be a great shame if we never did it… It’s kind of like Dorothy in ‘The Wizard Of Oz’, we close our eyes and click our heels [in the hopes it will come together].”
Hit the jump for video from the press conference, where he also discusses his willingness to be on “Game Of Thrones” – not that he necessarily will be. READ MORE
Hell On Earth has been a long time coming, seeing it’s origin back in 2010. The Long Death launches the continuation of Mignola’s epic B.P.R.D. event for 2012, and ya’ll better watch out.

Mignola and Arcudi toss all conventions and tropes out the window and you can already tell that Hell On Earth will be delivering some game-changing blows to the B.P.R.D. crew. Read on for the skinny…
Picking up right where things left off for BPRD, The Long Death brings in the new year for our favorite paranormal fighting squad.
