Our BPRD series wraps up with “Lobster Johnson: Iron Prometheus” by Mike Mignola and Jason Armstrong. This comic may have a silly name, but its combination of 1940’s noir and contemporary supernatural superheroes will soon brand you with the insanely loveable burning claw of justice. But if you’re like us, you might still have some grit in your teeth and a slightly empty feeling in your stomach. For more information on past or future shows, visit www.AtomicPoweredSuperCast.com!
This week read “Abe Sapien: The Devil Does Not Jest & Other Stories,” a collection of miniseries about the aquatic member of BPRD. We discuss subtle character, framed narrative, and give a good colorist his due. For more information on past or future shows, visit www.AtomicPoweredSuperCast.com!
After thoroughly enjoying Hellboy in our “Intro to Indie” arc, we decided to revisit the Mignolaverse with a B.P.R.D. series. We kick things off with “BPRD: Plague of Frogs” by Mike Mignola and Guy Davis. We drool over how well Mignola writes “show don’t tell” and just how great Guy Davis’ surprisingly colorful art works in this supernatural-paranormal-noir-horror world. It turns that all that hype you hear about how BPRD comics are might just be true after all. For more information on past or future shows, visit www.AtomicPoweredSuperCast.com!
