    I had a hard time following the last issue. Who is Stazz and how does Devon think they would be able to remove Liz from the room?

    Iím not trusting anything. The fact theyíre telegraphing it makes me think it wonít happen anyway, but if it did, Iíd be much more inclined to trust in my reading of it when it was released than prejudging the work of a man who has been working on Hellboy since near to its inception and who Mignola credits with an awful lot of the success of his work.

    I get the critique though. Abe Sapien was a really disjointed (and, to me, incredibly enjoyable) reading experience, and this B.P.R.D run so far has been different, spending time establishing what the characters relationships are like now Kate and Johann are gone, Abe is back, and Devon is in charge. Like with all things time will tell. Roberson is proving to be a steady, even hand on every title except that Strode mini.

    I get if you feel heís not for you though.

    Stazz was an agent who made a few appearances in the Abe Spain series

    I am sure that was auto-correct, but the Abe Spain series sounds like a cool private eye title.

    Abe Spain could team up with Joe Golum.

    Whoops! Uh, that’s actually Abe Sapiens non union Mexian equivalent.

    It also initially corrected Stazz to Stanza, but I had caught and edited that one. Can’t win them all I guess.

    Well, it's funny because it's true!

    I've enjoyed him on the first three issues more than I expected. I didn't read enough Abe to make a fair assessment.

    At the end of the day, I don't think Mike would let it happen if there wasn't a damn good reason to do it, or for it to happen.

    But personally I hope it doesn't.

    When I think about how specifically Roger comes up in 'Hellboy: The Storm & the Fury' already - visually at least - with queen Mabh foretelling about Hellboy needing help from friends before meeting his destiny ultimately or some such, I'm not so convinced Roger would even need being brought back to life at all.

    Since even with him remaining all dead and gone, Roger could still become to prove some kind of embodiment to what the Bureau still needs to achieve or come full circle with? So Hellboy's destiny could become foreseeable as resolvable once and for all?
    (At least I assume that's what basically the whole Vigrid angle, together with Hellboy's selfchosen homecoming, is for: for making endings or resolve become possible & foreseeable, before or prior because 'beyond' apocalypses there'd be no possible storytelling, which couples nicely with such endings as proving but hard if not impossible to envision in the first place, in making for decent leisure reading )

    OK, the trade comes out in April. Let's see if we can keep this forum a spoiler-free environment for trade readers. Remember to spoiler tag your posts.

    This issue was amazing! I wish we knew when we are getting more BPRD now more than ever.
