Mix up a solution with the madness of the Twilight Zone, the investigative techniques of CSI and strange encounters that can be found on the X-Files and you have the BPRD! BPRD #2 was a step into the bizarre! I couldn't help but feel sorry for Roger, he was really being picked on in this issue and he seemed unfaltered by the barbs that he was made up of horse manure and blood. Roger walking on the street would seem to have a odd package for a man, but of course we're talking about poor old Roger.

I kind of enjoy the drama within the ranks of the BPRD. No office works in total harmony and BPRD is no exception, there are quarrels, but when it comes down to the nitty gritty, the team works perfectly together in accomplishing the task at hand. Out of all the comic books I have read, I must admit that Johann is the weirdest character I have yet to encounter. In the X-Files, Mulder and Scully in one episode dealt with raining frogs, but with the BPRD, they are dealing with terrifying frog creatures! You can't get any better than that!
