    Great place to start, 4.5 stars

    I'm not going to review the story, I assume if you're looking at this you have a passing familiarity with the Hellboy/B.P.R.D. universe. If you don't, you should read the first couple trades of Hellboy before getting into BPRD, at least until "The Right Hand of Doom" the book where Hellboy and the BPRD part ways.
    So first off this is not an over-sized hardbound like the Hellboy library editions, which is my only quibble and the reason for the 4.5/5. The book size is the same as a standard trade pb, and it does have the title stamped into the spine and cover in silver so if you like to take the dust jacket off (like me) it still looks really nice (epescially lined up next to the Hellboy library ed.). The book has a new introduction from the series editor Scott Allie, and a new afterword from Mike Mignola. It also collects all the sketchbook supplemental material from the original three trades, which include notes from the contributing artists which is a nice little extra. Also its a sewn binding, so all of the panels are clearly visible and don't get lost down into the crack of the binding like some collections.
    Overall its a very nice collection and its a really good price considering its hardbound and collects three trades. The only regret is that it didn't get the deluxe treatment of Hellboy but maybe that will mean these collections (there's three more planned volumes for the Plague story arc, which is finished) will be released quicker. Great story, great art, great value, I highly recommend this collection.
