B.P.R.D. – Hell On Earth vol.11: Flesh and Stone (2015)
In this volume we get more information about Agent Howard’s past as a prehistoric warrior during a mission that looks easy on paper, but becomes a test for the BPRD’s endurance in the fight for humanity.
While in mother Russia, Iosif gets an offer he might not be able to refuse.
As with every trade of the series that came before it, this is a great read. Although it has a rich and complex history, every collection feels fresh and brings something new to the table. The rather glacial pace might be off putting in some cases, but with the care that is employed in crafting each storyline sticking with it will pay off at some point.
James Harren’s art is something i had to get used to, but since Rumble i’m completely onboard. It is dynamic, but also manages to convey a calmer mood when it is needed.
I would not recommend anyone to check up on BPRD, although it has become easier with the omnibus volumes of the Plague Of Frogs arc and already being eleven volumes into Hell On Earth, but as a taster, i guess this one is as good as any with providing a bit of background, action and a few emotional moments.
