Summary

Mike Mignola teams up with artist Ben Stenbeck (B.P.R.D.: The Ectoplasmic Man) for a look into one of the Hellboy universes greatest enigmas: nineteenth-century occult investigator Edward Grey! In one of Greys first cases as an agent of the queen, he goes from the sparkling echelons of Victorian London to its dark underbelly, facing occult conspiracies, a rampaging monster, and the citys most infamous secret society: The Heliopic Brotherhood of Ra. This volume collects Witchfinder: In the Service of Angels #1-#5. This book also includes Witchfinder: Murderous Intent, from MySpace Dark Horse Presents #16, by Mignola and Stenbeck, and Henry Hood: The Burial of Katharine Baker, from Hellboy: The Wild Hunt, by Solomon Kane writer Scott Allie and Abe Sapien: The Haunted Boy artist Patric Reynolds. All in all, this is a detective story that blends just the right amount of cerebral investigation with Mignolas trademark horror and adventure. And perhaps best of all, the story stands on its own very well, regardless of your past experience with Hellboy or B.P.R.D.—IGN.
