The Ones Who Bump Back

With all the ghouls, vampires, ghosties and Twi-hards roaming the land these days, isn't it nice to know there's an organization who has humanity's welfare at heart?   And don't they deserve some thanks?

Hellboy, that big red son of a witch with the bigger fist. Abe Sapien, Victorian era fishman.  Johann Krauss, bodiless ectoplasmic medium. Liz Sherman, pyrokinetic with the overwhelming destiny.  Kate Corrigan, knows her history.  Just some of the many hard-working, hard-fighting members of the B.P.R.D. (Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense)  Just a few of the heroes holding back the end of days and stopping the inevitable demonic apocalypse.  It goes without saying that almost nobody knows about them and they get very little credit.

The excellent writing skills of Mike Mignola, John Arcudi and others, and the fine drawing ability of Guy Davis and Mignola himself have made my recent reading of the Dark Horse comic book series a pleasure. 

And who do I have to thank?  My BFF Kirk, for owning the series and introducing it to me. How about a big hand for him and his lovely wife, on this Halloween, their THIRTEENTH wedding anniversary!

 There are things that go bump in the night, and they're the ones who bump back.
