B.P.R.D. Vol 6: The Universal Machine (2007) Mike Mignola, John Arcudi, Guy Davis

Roger is dead. Abe is still lost in his thoughts of his past. And Johann is trying to bring Roger back from the dead.

While Kate Corrigan heads off to France in search of a book that may help bring Roger back to life, the rest of the BPRD remain at headquarters, and end up telling stories.

One story is of Captain Daimio’s death; although we learn how he died, we still don’t know precisely why he returned to life. Abe, Liz, and Johann also told stories–ghost stories in a way.

And all of the stories are wrapped up in Roger’s death.

What I found interesting was that was unhappy as I was at Roger’s death, and as upset a Liz appeared, and never really felt much in the way of grief from the story.

This isn’t necessarily a bad thing that the story didn’t make me feel grief I felt in the way Sandman or Rising Stars did, because it’s not really that kind of story.

And having read a Hellboy comic followed immediately by a BORD comic, I have to say that I do prefer the Hellboy comics. There’s something about Hellboy’s attitude I enjoy. Not that BPRD is bad, it’s just not the same.
