And Done: "B.P.R.D. : 1946" by Mike Mignola nd Joshua Dysart

And Done: B.P.R.D.: 1946 by Mike Mignola nd Joshua Dysart, 2008, 9781595821911.

I enjoyed this best of the three BPRD novels I picked up. 

1946 and a scientist in the employ of the BPRD (maybe it was the precursor) is working to collect information about the nazi's work to gather occult material and artifacts.  The Russians have been working hard to gather up everything and their Berlin territory holds most of the archives and warehouses that hold those items. 

He does not have much to do because not much information is available.  They hang out in the archives and talk to their Russian counterpart - who appears to be a 6-year-old girl.

Scientist and others go to a mental asylum and discover weird stuff.  Vampires were captured by nazis with Hitler's plans to unle3ash vampire hordes across the world if the Germans may lose the war.  Lots of shooting.  Vampires.  Apes that are altered into androids.   A neat story and I liked this a lot.

Afterword by Dysart quotes Mignola saying "I just liked to draw nazis and monsters."

A short story from Comic Book Day follows.  I liked that story, too.
