    1 thought on “B.P.R.D.: 1948

    1. What I love about Hellboy, BPRD and all of the associated books is the way Mike Mignola and co work in haunted houses, gothic castles, black forests, demons, witches, and folklorish characters turned evil into their stories And sometimes they throw in some Nazi vampires and cyborg gorillas too It s a potent combination to read a horror comic with horror elements done right which is why the first two Trevor Bruttenholm pronounced Broom BPRD books, 1946 and 1947, are such enjoyable reads 1948 thou [...]

    2. Another flashback book from the Mignolaverse takes us back to 1983 and then, via a flashback within a flashback device, back even further to 1948.Occultism and physics collide when an atomic bomb test in the Utah desert creates a hole in reality which horrifying creatures jump through and start killing people left, right and centre.Meanwhile, Trevor is falling for a physicist working with the military Could the good professor find love under the desert moon Well, it looks as though their respect [...]

    3. 1948 sees the B.P.R.D team investigating monsters that appear after a nuclear test in Utah Whilst there, Trevor Bruttenholme has a bit of a flirt with a sexy female scientist, and vampire possessed Anders goes off the rails In other news, Hellboy learns to smoke and is excited by a potential meeting with President Truman but has an important lesson to learn about appearances He may still be just a child, but he s a demon child after all Varvara makes a couple of appearances but only to pout a lo [...]

    4. Disappointing There didn t seem to be a lot of thought given to the threat here, and few of the characters had any real development One of the weakest volumes in any of the Hellboy related titles.

    5. The series has many highs but this issue was a little boring and not the imaginative fantasy I ve grown accustomed with The weaker volumes are normally the spinoffs and this fails to hit the high quality of storytelling Hellboy or B.P.R.D main series Mignola needed to infuse mythology, the story is visually interesting but carries little depth.

    6. I didn t like this as much as I did the previous B.P.R.D 194 volumes It s still pretty good, but the others were so good, and felt like powerful, self contained stories that also left plenty of open ended questions, whereas this one feels like several storylines that never really tie together completely, and many of the character moments feel like they re just building to later things.

    7. Read this last night and I loved this a lot but I wished I had read 1947 earlier because I had to google what happened to Anders Highly recommend this for the Hell Boy fans.

    8. Melancholy and heartbreaking a book of consequences and how the past is never truly buried.Having recently read 1947 and the tragic tale of Anders I was highly anticipating this next arc Man did this arc not disappoint or what World Fiumara s art is amazing where does Mignola find all these artists , not only are his monsters absolutely amazing, but his characters are gorgeous Read this for the art if for nothing else but there is so much to read this book for More amazing world building and ins [...]

    9. I m working my way through trades at my local library and picked up BPRD 1948 as it looked to be the next one in the list If these are numbered, I can t tell because the barcode goes right where the number typically would be So, on top of just diving into several trades, I may be diving into different parts of of multitrade storyline.Overall, I found 1948 to be a good story, but it felt like a one off, filler story There was slight personal development for Hellboy, he rebels a bit, and Bruttenho [...]

    10. Atomic bombs, monsters from a parallel universe and a beautiful scientist what could possibly go wrong At least that s what I thought when I got into the third part of Professor Bruttenholm s early adventures with BPRD The first two installments were both brainless fun, and the second one even had a few touching moments towards the end of the book The main stories also had a logical closure that felt just right However, I can t say the same about 1948 The story about the atomic bomb ripping a ho [...]

    11. I ve enjoyed the other historic B.P.R.D offerings, but B.P.R.D 1948 didn t seem to have as much of a story to tell as its predecessors The premise here is that a monstrous flying creature is killing people at the site of the latest atomic weapon tests One of the resident scientists, who s disregarded for being a woman, thinks that scientific explanations may be the cause She forms a bond with B.P.R.D director Trevor Bruttenholm, who comes to investigate, but they have a nasty split over his insi [...]

    12. I m not sure what the point of this volume is, although it s possible that it s setting some stuff up for something to come in the 1940 something vampires sub series It s got some decent monsters, and a good character in Doctor Rieu, the sexy lady scientist that Professor Bruttenholm becomes infatuated with, but it kind of seems to be spinning its wheels, introducing the concept that atomic testing has weakened the fabric between realities and allowed some monsters to get through, as well as the [...]

    13. B.P.R.D and Hellboy all of those Mike Mignola properties seem to be things I just can t keep up with Maybe because they re so many volumes of them, and they re not labelled 1 infinity Somehow I located 1948 at my library When I flipped through a page or two and saw that Mignola wasn t doing the art, I was a little disappointed But that was really presumptuous of me The art is great It s understated when it needs to be, and it s gory as all hell when it needs to be This volume was great It really [...]

    14. Volume deludente di una delle mie serie preferite, quindi ancora pi deludente Purtroppo, questo da considerarsi un riempitivo Una storia che non aggiunge niente a quello che gi si sa e che non d soluzione a quanto accade in essa Lo spunto dell ambientazione anni 40, purtroppo, viene sprecato a pensare che sarebbe un ambientazione perfetta, poich gli anni successivi alla Seconda Guerra Mondiale mostrano quel miscuglio tra scienza e mistica su cui tanto si basa l universo Hellboy Gli unici dati ri [...]

    15. B.P.R.D Agent Anders, after a harrowing experience with vampires in 1947, is brought along by Professor Bruttenholm to research and eliminate some otherworldly monsters disrupting nuclear testing in Utah Some scientists are using nuclear weapons to power space ships, but the initial test has released the nasty things One of the scientists, quantum physicist Anna Rieu, thinks the testing should stop, partly because of the inter dimensional gate she theorizes about and partly from an anti nukes at [...]

    16. It wasn t the same without Abe Sapien and a lot Hellboy in it From what I ve read in the past, they seem the backbone of the B.P.R.D and they were sorely needed in the storyline Hellboy was an adolescent, and Abe Sapien was nowhere to be seen Overall, B.P.R.D 1948 really wasn t that good It was interesting and all, but it didn t really catch my attention I read it with kind of a feeling of needing to get it done as fast as I could, just to get it over with It doesn t stop me from continuing to [...]

    17. I m afraid this is where I leave you, B.P.R.D I was so in love with you when we met in 1946 The chills, the surprises, the places unseen Then 1947 came along We stumbled through the year, but I tried to remember the old days I hoped that things would look up Now, in 1948, things have become bland, stale, predictable We ve become that old couple that never does anything new Our relationship reminds me of too many past relationships that ended up going absolutely nowhere Let s just end this before [...]

    18. Read this out of order This is before Vampire I want to give it four stars for great art and interesting story, but the story ends up too split to accomplish itself well on either front Anders subplot should have been left alone entirely to be dealt with in Vampire, and the core 48 storyline could easily have been a two volume arc The BPRD 40s series has been a really interesting exercise, and I d love to see them do with it except as side stories between BPRD arcs.

    19. It s the third year of the BPRD s existence and its original crew of ordinary GIs is already beginning to be replaced by er, unusual and damaged agents Hellboy s starting to realize he doesn t look like everyone else And Professor Bruttenholm is called in when monsters begin to erupt around a nuclear test site, leading to an almost romance with a pretty nuclear physicist Good, at least if you re a fan of this mythos.

    20. This collection isn t half as good as 1946 and 1947 Whilst I liked the art, the story didn t really seem to have much of a point and while it wasn t bad, it wasn t as brilliant as previous volumes

    21. An annoyingly long and boring story about nothing Honestly, the only two good things about this volume were the art and a couple little cameos by young Hellboy Everything else in this story was, literally, professor Bruttenholm trying to hit on a woman and that annoying prick Anders wandering around in the desert being all emo and shit Blergh Definitely the worst BPRD volume so far.

    22. More fantastic work from the 1940s Era of BPRD series People complaining it s thrown together or characters aren t developed must have been watching TV and trying to read this at the same time There s something in the works here More Anders, about these monster s origins and the Prof, but it ll come in the next volume Mignola never disappoints.

    23. No s qu aporta aquesta hist ria a la col lecci No hi passa res Militars i cient fics discutint toooota l estona Mitja dotzena de monstres pel desert, un tiroteig i llestos El triangle amor s est posat amb cal ador Una decepci de totes totes A Planetary explicaven el mateix en el segon o tercer n mero amb molt ssima m s gr cia i menys p gines.

    24. While there was no slacking in the awesome monster art, the story wasn t the usual caliber The ending seemed forced and characters other than Bruttenholm were flat, almost as if on purpose But the premise of technology interacting with the supernatural is certainly intriguing and something Hellboy comics have been light on lately.

    25. I enjoyed this one because of its different ness the art was a lot in line with mainstream comics, and the usual feel of Mignola s work was augmented by a refreshingly sleeker look The story, as usual, was excellent, and the art to match.

    26. An enjoyable entry into Hellboy s world I ve previously only seen the GDT movies and read an anthology of Hellboy shorts written and illustrated by comics artists other than Mignola , but I fit easily into the story I m off to find now.

    27. Definitely a solid installment I liked the creature design a lot than the actual art, if that makes sense But hella creatures Mmm, creatures.

    28. Excellent story again even a wistful failed romance subplot But little Hellboy almost steals it all If he doesn t break melt your heart, grab a stethoscope and make sure you still have one.
