BPRD Hell on Earth - New World #5

Written by Mike Mignola and John Arcudi

There's some pretty interesting stuff going on in BPRD these days, as this issue sheds some light on the origins of the strange creature that's been giving Abe and Daimyo such a hard time in BC, and in turn drops some hints as to what's going on the world over.

While the storyline involving this monster takes up most of this book, there are plenty of other interesting things going on at BPRD headquarters these days that deserve some discussion.  There continues to be more tension between Abe and Devon, who thinks that he's the 'anti-Christ', although the cause of that animosity showing up in this issue turns out to be someone else, who has been acting very strangely of late.

What's kept me interested in this book has always been the strong characters and their sometimes contentious relationships with each other.  Now that the world has been going through so many changes and new challenges, it seems that all of these relationships have been pushed to the limit, making this book ever more interesting.
