Publisher Comments:

The Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense and their new team leader, a former corpse himself, moves into their new headquarters only to unearth a gigantic long-buried secret involving United States government covert experiments and Nazi scientists.

Hellboy creator Mike Mignola teams with artist Guy Davis and co-writer John Arcudi to carve out a bold new direction for the B.P.R.D., while Abe Sapien, still reeling from the revelation of his former life as a Victorian scientist, meets his long dead wife in their crumbling home by the sea. This collection includes an extended sketchbook section featuring the otherworldly designs Guy Davis for the roster of new characters introduced in The Dead. Collecting the five-issue miniseries.

The strangest team book in comics gets weirder with this tale of the walking dead, madness, the Spear of Destiny, and a monstrous gateway to heaven.

Ron Williams, February 13, 2010 (view all comments by Ron Williams)
The BPRD series is a spin off featuring every other character of the Hellboy Universe. While overseen and heavily influenced by Mike Mignola, it is written and drawn by various other artists and writers that Mignola has chosen for the series. Many times, this would be a warning, but with BPRD, the stories and art are fantastic, creative and very clever. If you're a fan of Hellboy, but haven't ventured into the BPRD stories, you definitely should. It's more than worth your time.
