100 Days, 100 Comics #14: ‘B.P.R.D.: 1947’ #2

B.P.R.D. 1947 #2I wrote back in July about how much I enjoyed the first issue of the latest B.P.R.D. mini. I initially thought this second issue was going to be a bit weaker, but then the glorious baroque witch hurricane blew in straight out of the horror reduxed Mary Poppins trailer, and the thing got sailing with me as a reading experience. Fábio Moon & Gabriel Bá kill it as you’d expect them to art-wise in the best way. It did lose a little steam at the end, though, mainly due to the ending not being nearly as menacing or meaningful as issue #1 was.

Issue #2 did what it needed to, but beyond the confrontational moment with Baron Konig (which was magnificent), it feel like mostly a bridge chapter without a lot stand-out moments. Nevertheless, that’s probably par for the course since it’s a miniseries, but also reason I probably could have held off on B.P.R.D. : 1947 until it comes collected to trade.
