Is It Good? Abe Sapien: Dark and Terrible #2 Review

Abe Sapien is back, and he’s still on the run. Story by Scott Allie and Mike Mignola, who I’m convinced never sleeps. Another comic in the Mignolaverse, y’all!

Is It Good? Abe Sapien: Dark and Terrible #2 Review

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

Hot damn, this one is epic. (Highlight spoilers to read) Abe finds out from the pyschic woman in the wheelchair, Panya, the B.P.R.D. is planning to dissect Abe, and that they no longer trust him, now that he is changing. She urges Abe to find out what is happening to him, before the B.P.R.D. attempt to find out via surgery and other methods he probably won’t enjoy.

There’s some heavy s--t going down in this issue. Questions of humanity, and religious fanaticism as a reaction to terrible events. I did not expect to be so moved by this issue.

Sebastián Fiumara’s Abe is…awe inspiring. Never have I seen such a beautiful depiction of Abe Sapien.

  • Great art; shows a great, shadowy Abe Sapien
  • Powerful themes to the plot
  • Somewhat hard to start without prior knowledge of what’s been happening in the Mignolaverse

And of course, all of his other art is fantastic. Powerful images to accompany the powerful philosophical content and action. Fiumara is a mastermind with his imagery. He knows how to tug at the heart strings.

Is It Good?

Yes. Anyone who likes the B.P.R.D., or Hellboy, should give this series a read. Great art, an excellent story line. What’s not to like? Well, as so much has occurred in the Mignolaverse, you might be overwhelmed just hopping into this issue. Isn’t that every comic though?
