CBR: Arcudi Raises the B.P.R.D.'s "King of Fear"
"B.P.R.D.: King of Fear" #1 is in stores now, opening an apocalyptic new chapter in the team's adventures. We spoke with John Arcudi, who co-writes the series with "Hellboy" creator Mike Mignola, about what's coming up for the Bureau.

I'm really looking forward to reading this new mini, which is not surprising, as BPRD is one of my favourite series out there. Great stories, great characters, great art. I'd even prefer it to Hellboy, which does say something about Arcudi's craft. I just hope they will continue to do something with Lobster Johnson.

The silver thorn of bloody rose lies crushed and broken on the virgin snow...
With every passing issue of B.P.R.D. my long time dedication and appreciation to this title seems more and more vindicated and worthwhile. Issue one of the new six issue mini-series, King of Fear began within the closed door session of a congressional briefing and ended upon the snow peaked mountaintop where Hellboy and Roger buried the physical remains of Lobster Johnson.
Somehow, no matter where Abe, Liz or Kate seem to find themselves right now I keep hearing a dry raspy whisper upon the wind. I can't seem to get the sound of it out of my head. Only a single word, but it haunts me and I can't help but feel something about it is important.
There is unfinished business and unresolved feelings that need to be addressed. It seems to be that whenever a man stands upon the precipice of significant challenge and life altering epiphany that his friends arrive to bolster his resolve and lift up his heart for upcoming events. There is a coming together in the wind. And for some reason I can't quite put my finger on yet I keep hearing a word upon the breeze, Makoma...
Could just be my imagination though.
One of my favorite hellbooks to date! It further solidifies my opinion that if you feature Lobster Johnson you can't go wrong. The image of him just sitting the back seat of the car was hilarious.
