Nothing brings to mind evil like the idea of Nazis. The righteous anger that flows at the mere mention of the name is true, especially in the world of Hellboy. But alongside that is another name that conjures up similar ire and fear: Rasputin. In Mike Mignola‘s Rasputin: The Voice Of The Dragon #1, we witness an allegiance form of the most diabolical sorts.
As dark forces rise and begin their plans to dominate over mankind, it is up to a few individuals of strong character and amazing foresight to find a way to defeat them. This early look into the mechanisms that begat the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense (BPRD) is a testament to the fortitude of all men and women who stand up to that which is a perversion of the rights of all people, regardless of the cost to themselves.
While this story may detail the events prior to the arrival of Hellboy, it also chronicles the heroes who fought to protect us all. There is much truth in this fictional comic book, even if it is not directly presented. Enjoy the hell out of this one, my friends. I most certainly did!
A conspiracy involving the Third Reich and a dead member of a sinister secret society sets Professor Bruttenholm on his first mission–to find the man who’d soon bring Hellboy to earth.
The mad Russian sorcerer Rasputin had been thought dead since 1916, when a group of noblemen sought to end his influence over the tsar. Now Rasputin works with the most twisted members of Hitler’s inner circle, and he’s about to cross paths with the man who’ll go on to found the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense.
