Review- ‘Hellboy and The B.P.R.D.: Time is a River’

Comic Books Entertainment Reviews

‘Hellboy and The B.P.R.D.: Time is a River’ Mike Mignola Artist: Márk László Colorist: Dave Stewart Cover Artist: Márk László

This book has a direct connection with the Hellboy Winter Special of 2019, where László first got a chance to tell us a story from Budapest in The Miser’s Gift.

His work here is amazing. I think that Mignola is having a great time, in semiretirement, telling ghost stories with collaborators from all over the world, this can, hopefully, go on forever.

In the previous story, the unintended consequence of Hellboy’s meddling with the ghost of a miser is having accidentally left eclectic academic Lajos behind.

He is now trying to make amends, and a witch will most spectacularly send him to the ghostly version of Budapest, where his friend is trapped and about to be sacrificed.

Besides, he will be doing this on a crossed timeline, where he must rescue Lajos before they throw him into the Danube river. Time is in itself a sort of a river, too, and you may cross it in different directions, or so it seems.

But, will Hellboy cross the river of time without getting lost in it?

I have to say that Márk is an amazing artist, his detailed and expressive drawings are something I had not seen in a very long time.
