Abe Sapien #2 “Dark and Terrible” Review

Abe Sapien 002 - Dark and Terrible part 2-001

Abe Sapien #2 “Dark and Terrible”

Writer: Mike Mignola and Scott Allie
Artist: Sebastián Fiumara

This story starts off with Abe being caught up on all the disasters that have put the world into chaos. The end of days as monsters are rising from the ground, natural disasters are sweeping up continents, and many are fighting a lost war. Unlike most, Abe is a monster, but one of intelligence that doesn’t belong on the battlefield. Even Hellboy is supposedly lost to this war which tells you just how serious this threat is. The old woman telling him these things is whose directing him on this journey he must take, to find out his purpose and who he is.

It was interesting that even though the first place Abe went to was a church in order to rest, the priest there was actually welcoming to him. What was happening around the world was nothing new to the man which was why he wasn’t scared when he first encountered Abe. Though we then switch over to the B.P.R.D. officers who are hunting Abe thinking he is the cause for everything happening. Something to point out is odd for them to do because he’s one of them and is very humane. Here Allie was able to show what people really thought of monsters like himself and how they are lumped together as trouble and nothing else. Even more so when the towns people turned on their own priest for asking them to be at peace with those who were transformed.

Score: 7.7/10


And stay tuned!
