At the turn of the twentieth century, a British museum curator with a bent for
the occult traveled east in search of power and immortality. He was never
heard from again.
In 1937, a masked crime fighter, the Lobster, faced a magic-wielding madman bent on
fulfilling an apocalyptic prophecy. The plans were foiled, and the world
saved, but the villain himself disappeared…
Seventy years later, B.P.R.D. agent Liz Sherman began to experience visions of
a mysterious gentleman who warned of coming catastrophes. When the Bureau
tracked him down, he disappeared—and kidnapped Liz.
Now, Liz's friends race to find her as their old enemies band together for a
final, catastrophic attack.
• The Black Goddess is the second of three arcs pulling together threads from the beginning of the series—and leaving the B.P.R.D. and the world forever changed.
