Publisher Comments:

After holding it a secret for ten years, Hellboy creator Mike Mignola finally reveals Abe Sapien's bizarre history. Introduced in the first Hellboy book and featured prominently in the film, Abe Sapien has remained one of the most intriguing mysteries of Mignola's celebrated work.

The recent Hellboy film steered clear of any origin story for Abe so that the tale could be told in Plague of Frogs. The story of Abe's origins unfolds as the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense try to stop the monstrous frog men from the first Hellboy graphic novel, Seed of Destruction. The plague begins its spread across America, lending an apocalyptic new direction to Mignola's stories. Collecting the five-issue miniseries.

With art by Guy Davis and a behind-the-scenes look at his sketchbook, this third volume of B.P.R.D. sees Mignola taking over writing chores for the first time and reveals secrets he's kept under wraps since the beginning of the Hellboy saga, and changes that world completely.

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.
