Hellboy Book Club Episode 26 - B.P.R.D. The Black Goddess
This is sure to be a series that Danielle enjoys. B.P.R.D.: The Black Goddess further develops the backstory of the… dark… lady… and more importantly, really digs deeper into Memnan Saa. We see Kate growing as the bad ass action heroine we all knew she was inside, while Liz kinda also advances, kinda? Sshe sure does a lot of crazy magic stuff anyway.
The best thing about the B.P.R.D. story, in my opinion, is the perpetually blooming flower of it all. The story never really slows down (though is does take occasional detours for a single issue or so) and builds a complex world at the same time as a complex narrative. While you rarely see detailed and vibrant crowds or cities, you get a pretty strong idea of exactly where the world is. Series like this perfectly demonstrate this happening. Everyone should love The Black Goddess..
