Since this is another collection of shorter stories, here are my individual reviews of each one:

Pickens County Horror - I loved the unique style of art in this volume. I would definitely like to see this artist do more in BPRD. The story has some rea

I'm rounding the score up from 3.5 stars for this volume. I really enjoyed The Devil's Engine. The tension is absolutely fantastic and so is the art. It is refreshing to focus on characters who are helpless and it really plays up the horror. The Long ...more

Since this volume is a collection of shorter stories, I'll go over my thoughts for each one and then the volume as a whole.

Hellboy is what got me into reading comics as an adult so it will always hold a special place in my heart. With that said, I have not read anything Hellboy, B.P.R.D., Abe Sapien, or Lobster Johnson in a year or two because I've stopped buying print c ...more

Ernest Hemingway
“Now Catherine would die. That was what you did. You died. You did not know what it was about. You never had time to learn. They threw you in and told you the rules and the first time they caught you off base they killed you. Or they killed you gratuitously like Aymo. Or gave you the syphilis like Rinaldi. But they killed you in the end. You could count on that. Stay around and they would kill you.”
Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms

Lion Feuchtwanger
“Can you remember, Acte...how much easier our belief in Nero made life for us in the old days? And can you remember the paralysis, the numbness that seized the whole world when Nero died? Didn't you feel as if the world had grown bare and colorless all of a sudden? Those people on the Palatine have tried to steal our Nero from us, from you and me. Isn't splendid to think that we can show them they haven't succeeded? They have smashed his statues into splinters, erased his name from all the inscriptions, they even replaced his head on that huge statue in Rome with the peasant head of old Vespasian. Isn't it fine to teach them that all that hasn't been of the slightest use? Granted that they have been successful for a few years. For a few years they have actually managed to banish all imagination from the world, all enthusiasm, extravagance, everything that makes life worth living. But now, with our Nero, all these things are back again.”
Lion Feuchtwanger, The False Nero

Ed Brubaker
“Revenge. That's what he had come for... But it didn't really exist, did it?

Just empty regret and bitter heartbreak, wandering the streets.

The city around him, white and grey and cold, felt suddenly so small.

Hyde had been right about family, there was no escaping it...

Even when there was no one left to run from.”
Ed Brubaker, Criminal, Vol. 2: Lawless
