Just as the contemporary world of B.P.R.D. gets more interesting and closer to the end, it’s also become a mess to untangle. There’s a standalone Abe Sapien book, and the main series recently started numbering sequentially in addition to keeping its series of miniseries format. And a revolving series of — albeit quite talented — artists has left the series feeling a little disconnected. The story is huge, and being told in tiny chunks, so at times it’s hard to get a grasp of the bigger picture.

Vampires in Mignola’s universe have an interesting history, and this book touches on what we already know and expands it a little more. What’s important is that vampires went “underground” for a time so that humans would forget them and let them pass into myth. Simon Anders knows better, and the vampire spirits in his chest cause such unrest that the only way he can think to exact vengeance is to track down the source of the vampires and kill them.

This is of course not the first time Ba and Moon have drawn Mignola’s world, and hopefully it won’t be their last. VAMPIRE is easily some of their finest work, on par with anything they’ve made. The twins styles are quite different, with Ba preferring the even keel of a graphic pen while Moon opts for fluid brushwork. And yet their figure work and paneling are largely simpatico , to the point that you almost don’t notice the transition from one brother’s hand to the next. And indeed, they work on the same pages in this book and in a few cases even the same panels.
