Abe Sapien #7! It is 1984 and Abe Sapien is on a solo mission to recover the lost burgonet of Melchiorre.(cooler than it sounds)...
 
 The Good  
Everything. Mignola, Arcudi, and Snejbjerg bring us the first half of another great Abe Sapien tale. Like most Hellboy/B.P.R.D. stories this one is rich in atmosphere and it delivers the goods. The "burgonet of Melchiorre" itself also has a neat back story.
 
 
The Bad
Didn't really care for Snejbjerg's version of Abe. I wish Mignola would draw more of these stories himself.
    
The Verdict - 5/5  
 I sometimes think I may like Abe more than Hellboy. Despite my gripes with Abe's visual portrayal, this is another near flawless chapter in the greater B.P.R.D./Hellboy Universe. Highly recommended.
