In the wake of the Second World War, Professor Trevor Bruttenholm—occult investigator and guardian of the infant Hellboy—founded the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense to investigate and defuse the remains of the Axis's sophisticated occult-warfare projects and potential Soviet threats. Now, with the help of a handful of war-weary American soldiers and their erstwhile Soviet allies, Bruttenholm unravels the mystery of the Nazi Occult Bureau's greatest and most threatening initiative: Project Vampir Sturm.

Garden Of Souls gives us some more info into Abe's unknown past and its somewhat of a letdown. I was hoping for more intrigue and mystery. The revelations weren't very revealing. The story was just kind of bland. Guy Davis continues a great job on art especially his depiction of Abe. Overall, not enough action and drama.

B.P.R.D.: Garden of Souls is another fine addition to the series. Unfortunately, it is also so closely tied to the B.P.R.D. continuity that even a relatively observant fan can easily miss some of the major plot points carried from earlier story-lines. Like The Dead before it, much of Garden of Souls revolves around Abraham Sapien stumbling towards a better understanding of his previous life, and growing to like himself less and less because of it. While Abe is off in the South Pacific we catch a few short glimpses of the goings on with the rest of the crew back in Colorado, though they do little more than to lay the groundwork for future story-lines. Though it is yet another Abe-centered story, it does rather more to develop his character than those previous, and also gives him the chance to do some of the high-adventure actionering that was usually reserved for his ex-associate, Hellboy. As with all of the B.P.R.D. series, and indeed nearly all of Mignola's work, B.P.R.D.: Garden of Souls is relatively light on words; it is the dynamic and beautiful nature of the art that really drives the story. Davis really does an incredible job, and has had a great opportunity to get creative with the design for this volume. The story introduces a few really visually interesting characters -- and a couple species-- that while only making brief appearances, make this story a feast for the eye and the imagination. While Garden of Souls shares some of the same flaws as its predecessors, it does more than deliver the creative and engrossing story that B.P.R.D. represents.
