B.P.R.D. Vol 4: The Dead (2005) Mike Mignola. John Arcudi, Guy Davis

Set in the aftermath of Plague of Frogs, the BPRD has to figure out how to stop the frog monsters, while Abe has become obsessed with his past, and the man he may have been in another life. On top of that the group received a new member, Captain Daimio. Daimio is, to put it mildly, abrasive to some members of the group. But with Hellboy and now Abe AWOL, the need a new member.

I’m not particularly sure how I feel about The Dead, other than I really want to pick up the next volume and start reading.

I don’t like Daimio, but then I don’t think I’m supposed to. I feel bad for Abe, but wish he’d get back to the BPRD before more bad things happen, and I don’t quite understand when Roger got to be quite so slow. He didn’t seem that slow in earlier volumes. Though I suppose I don’t remember him talking quite as much in other volumes, so perhaps that’s it.

Also, that didn’t look anything like a dinosaur. They really should have known better.

This would not be a good place to jump into the series. We’ve got the whole plague of frogs things still unresolved, as well as what we learned of Abe’s back story last volume. So don’t start here.
